Real Gun Control must be done and done fast

We have to act fast and pass meaningful gun control while we have the political will to do it.

While Biden needs to keep his promise to get the weapons of war off of our streets we need to get every handgun out of circulation as that is what is wreaking havoc on our people

No handguns, no high capacity magazines, no assault weapons, no automatic or semi-automatic guns, no bump-stocks, no silencers, no arsenals, no keeping hundreds of rounds of ammo

If you want a gun you should first have to get a license, pass a background check, mental health check, register it, and keep it in a safe and you should only be able to have a musket, hunting gun, or shotgun.

If you want to see why just check out the UK or Australia

The crying will be loud but after a few years people will see the light

1. Love your enthusiasm, but there's no real mechanism to remove every handgun from existence.

I don't know how you would even begin to enforce that.

7. You'll never to get any of them as this would be struck down by the

first court that heard the lawsuit.

Even if it survived a lower court challenge, which it wouldn't, the SC would strike it down and then we would lose the House and the Senate in 2022.

Doesn't sound like a very smart plan to me.

3. Sure, why not?

Let's hand control of the Senate and the House back to the repukes in 2022.

5. this, lets at least wait a bit to commit political suicide

besides, even if it was remotely possible to pass even an item or two from that list, very little of what was mentioned would survive legal challenge with the current supreme court.

Some of it, such as a mandatory buybacks or outright confiscation, wouldn't pass 2nd and/or 5th amendment scrutiny with a fair court.

Given what we have seen from the right, and the impossibility to tracking down all the existing guns, I'm not sure I want much more than universal background checks and red flag laws.

4. We don't have the political will to do it

 

Senate "majority" is 50+ Kamala Harris and one of those 50 is Joe Manchin.
