33. Yup.

 

- solution based strategy - if we agree there is a problem, can we agree on finding a solution?


First we have to agree on what the problem actually is.

Second, we have to agree that there are limits and avenues which will not be allowed as a solution.

Absence of a law to control private gun sales aka background checks (loopholes as I have mistakenly named it).
There is no law over these sales.
Do you agree that this needs to be addressed?


All I've seen is "we want this" with very little discussion of how much or how big of a problem it is first.

Alot of Tea Party people are Pro Guns - yet they like to cut programs designed to help police the guns. Why?


Because ATF has a checkered past and has been known to operate with an ideological agenda.

If you are a Dem and Pro-Gun, then do you agree we should spend more money on the ATF? Other programs?


So long as ATF cleans up their act...

You posted several links to DU posts from 2 years ago, regarding "no one is taking our guns"
That's it - nothing else to take away here.....You support a pro-gun platform, no problem.


No. That was a link to a search, which shows numerous examples of people that want to take away at least some if not all guns.

It contradicts your claim that "nobody wants to take anyones guns".

Yes we try to convict and send killers to jail but what do we do to stop them from getting the gun in the first place?
Not much.


We used to keep them in jails, where guns are scarce. Now we let them out, and people like you want to further diminish the right to keep and bear arms instead.

I hope you are not saying its ok for "other" people to kill each other as long as you have your gun in your safe cul de sac.


Outside of self defense its never ok to kill people, but I also blame the individual not the instrument when people break that law.
