Gun Control What's your take???

Quite a discussion going on. Nothing will change because men
don't have the guts to do what's necessary to stop the carnage.
Using the death of children as a reason will only shed a brief
light what is an insurmountable problem....

I absolutely support the following:
-Tougher Back round Checks with MANDATORY training (Including most importantly those selling online AND at Gun Shows) because currently by most estimates only 60% of those purchasing a weapon are subject to a back round check making it easy to circumvent the system and purchase a weapon
-Expanded State Reporting to create improved communication between states
-The creation (and strict enforcement) of a "prohibited individuals list" which bans people for various reasons (prior Felon with weapons charges, mentally ill etc.) from owning any gun in any state for any reason
-The Complete banning of Assault Weapons and High Capacity Magazines because they really have absolutely no relevance in today's modernized society

If we could just start with that, I think that we could consider it progress...

It is absolutely too easy for people who shouldn't to get guns. So, until there is a way found to prevent this (or at least cut it down significantly), I would support almost ANY plan to decrease the number of guns of any kind in the hands of the public.

The only way to stop a bad person with a gun, is a good person with a gun. Simple as that.

It is too easy for a criminal to get a gun. For me, NYC at least, I had to go through some crazy shit to get a rifle permit. I am still waiting for results on a pistol permit, over a year. So my home defence is just a shotty. I would rather have a handgun. But the laws in NYC make it extreme for me to get anything relating to a gun. Now if the rest of the states would follow that, it would be nice. Because a criminal, goes to some lax ass state, gets a gun at Walmart, and does whatever the hell they need to do with it.

It isn't about assault rifles either. You think that shit bag couldn't do this damage with a glock?

Blame the retard ass mother and the rest of the family for not securing those guns.

I keep wondering if this type of carnage would go down the same in Texas. You know the place where every fifth person carries a piece. Where there is a big chance those same teachers have a few revolvers in their desks.

That didn't help at Columbine, where there was an armed security guard.

While it won't prevent every incident, one way to reduce the number of bad guys with guns is to reduce the number of guns.

I struggle to understand why anybody needs an assault rifle or high capacity magazine if they aren't in the military.

I have a gun. I have it for two reasons...

I like target shooting, but I could do that will a less powerful weapon such as a BB gun.

The primary reason I want killing power is because I travel with a friend who is very attractive. She is often approached just waking down the street or when we are traveling. On one trip years ago, when we pulled into a rest stop there was a group (gang?) of street assholes who started making rude comments to her as she made her way to the ladies room.

They backed off when they saw me approaching from the car. Since that day I never let her go into restrooms at relatively empty rest stops without escorting her to the ladies room and then waiting near the door for her to come out.

I realized that sometime in the future, there may be a time and place where somebody might not be as ready to back off. On those occasions I want to be armed.
