Gun nuts, Republicans, Christians... I could use labels all day for the special kind of asshole that thinks only about his own Rights and doesn't even want to have a discussion about improving society because they're paranoid about losing said right. You also have the Right to be killed. It would seem the only logical way to have the conversation move in a constructive direction.

I do invite the discussion, since it's going to do nothing but piss away the gains that the democrats have had in the last couple elections. America likes it's guns.


And yet the right has offered little to nothing of an idea to reduce the number of gun deaths in this country. I would venture the left has offered very little more.

But hey, let's not go after the causes of the intent for murder: drug trade, mental health, notoriety, guns overly glorified. Let's just deflect and say "DURRRRR RIGHTS WHARGARBL 2nd AMENDMENT RIGHTS WHARGARBL!"

Alright, from another thread, with a couple of inclusions spurred by input:

Expand the NFA to include all NEW semi-autos (all, period), and all existing semi-autos above a threshold caliber. The threshold calibers would be .380ACP for Pistols, .30 Carbine for rifles (.223 Remington/5.56 NATO is more powerful and thus included, for all you trolls trying to go that route), 4-10 for shotguns. The reason for the threshold calibers on existing semi-autos is because it would be so expensive and practically impossible to account for every single gun out there as to be pointless. The 250 Million+ firearms number that people hear about the total number of guns in this country only accounts what can be tracked. Serial numbers were not required on guns nor was record keeping on their manufacture required until the 60's. That 250 Million plus number is just the ones we have the capability to track. People have to remember that it was common place for even department stores like Sears to manufacture little plinking rifles and pistols and sell them. Getting them all would be, well, to try would be silly. With the threshold calibers set, we'll get most everything that is considered even capable of easily killing.

Set the Tax stamp for the incoming semi-autos at $20. Use these funds to establish a more thorough NICS database AND reporting system. Those reported as mentally unstable or otherwise unfit get a friendly visit from BATFE and if the BATFE agent concurs, possession is revoked until an evaluation is performed and permanence of that status decided. Also establish offices for BATFE, just like the DMV, where people can come in and get their license issues resolved same day. Keep the current mail in system for those out in the boonies. Repeal the Hughes amendment (which did literally nothing, NFA weapons already weren't being used in crimes), and treat suppressors (KEEPING THE TAX STAMP, just switching it to $20 instead of $200) as safety equipment. All paid for with revenues from the tax stamps. Easily. Hell there'd be a huge surplus in revenue from it, use that to help repair the mental health system, I insist.

This accomplishes several things, registration, licensing (you have to be approved for the stamp), and if you really want to, do the CCW thing and require basic classes be completed. The important thing is to streamline everything so that it's at least as functional as the DMV.

And they told me gun nuts were the violent ones who wish death on others.

Good luck. I know Facebook isn't a scientific data collection method, but here's how it breaks down among my friends:

Liberal Friends: some are calling for stronger gun control. Some are calling for stronger ammunition control. Some are calling for increased investment in mental health services.

Conservative Friends: Posting pictures of candles and talking about how 20 new angels are spending Christmas with Jesus.

GoldSpider: chuckufarlie: actually I was not talking about this kid at all. I was making a blanket statement about gun nuts. Having the intelligence that allows you to shoot a gun is not the same as having the intelligence to use one responsibly.

And how do you know this kid should be included in that demographic?

Which do you suppose has a stronger correlation with violent crime? Legal gun ownership or mental illness?


WOW, you are really thick. I told that I was not talking about the kid. What part of that sentence are you having problems with?

Let me clarify it for you. From the comments that I have seen here, the gun owners that have posted here are too stupid to be allowed to own a gun.

Does that help? You have shown a remarkable level of stupidity so it is possible that you need it further explained.

Yes, there was that.

He also seemed to latch on to me saying something about improving society, but because I said it after saying (parapharsing me) that we need not be so paranoid about our rights, he assumed I was living in some communist utopia.

I will make it very clear, Allen West guy: have your rights, just know that you can have your rights and also be interested in improving society. Most people here who are gun nuts don't want to have the conversation. They are paranoid dicks who care only about themselves and will block rational discussion at all costs.
