38. Unfettered access to guns? - Sounds like the middle east!

 

I'm sorry you don't want to discuss this topic with a solution in mind.

Only 4 states have laws regarding licensing - sounds like an opportunity to fix the rest of the USA.
Laws were meant to be amended. That's our Constitution.
Especially when other Americans are dying due to the law or the lack of enforcement.

AK47
OK - I say they are useless for sport - you say let people decide.
Sounds like a referendum on a local ballot.
One possible solution here.

So I can use my 30-30 rounds in my AK47?
Ammo is expensive, so I can save some money?
There is no good reason to keep a AR15, AK47 or any possibly automatic weapon.
(protect you from the government you say? if they can drone bomb people halfway around the world, then they'll be by to take your gun from your cold dead hands, when they're ready)

.50 caliber
Keep your .50 caliber if you want a bigger hole through the target at shooting practice.
I just don't understand why anyone would need a .50 caliber anything.
Your right, your choice - but with better background checks

Starting somewhere....
Those laws need updated desperately or at least amended.
When people stop killing other people, then we can stop talking about additional gun control.
Maybe its not through the gun control laws but maybe through the DMV when you get your drivers license and they submit you to a mental evaluation to drive a car and possess a firearm (at the same time).
Saves time and money and it may stop one accidental killing.


On NRA/Gun Companies - Extremist? Maybe.... Loud Activist? Yes!
I will always hold my opinion as you will hold on to yours.
However, I am more than willing to come to the middle and discuss how we can rationally resolve the opposing sides.
If you want your guns, so be it, but we need to agree upon a way to filter out some of the bad people.
This is a very small step to a bigger problem such as inequality and the poor urban areas.


NRA = No responsibility
When will the NRA set up a fund for the people injured/killed by firearms?
Sounds like deferred ignorance from the gun industry.
Turn away from the problem and focus on the gun control people....nevermind what horrific firearm experiences you see everyday in the news.
When will the NRA have mandatory training for all its members to avoid accidental killings?
Where's the culpability?

When a product is dangerous in the USA, and it kills someone, the companies involved typically take steps to improve the product to make it safer. This is largely due to the fact that these companies can be sued, even if there product is used in a manner not designed for.
Guns are made for killing, yet the gun industry is protected by US law from being sued.
Is this not a little odd to you?
People can sue an automobile company for using a car as a weapon, but can't sue the gun companies or at least make them liable to provide free training to all gun customers? Where is their skin in this costly game?

Good conversation so far.....
