  • I think the answer would be something like this.  We make everybody where a visible tracking devise and you would be arrested if you were not wearing it.  If there were a violent act with a gun all we would have to do is track who was at the scene a…
  • @ThangNguyenBottom line is if a criminal wants to get a gun in this country they are going to get one. I assume you live in the U.S. It is against the law to sell a criminal a gun.  Criminals don't care about the laws so they are going to get them i…
  • There is no way to enforce laws of gun control.  If a person doesn't have a license they can break the law and drive a car.  It doesn't stop accidents.  A license doesn't stop someone from getting in a car and killing someone.  Why would you think i…
  • As long as it is our right to own or shoot a gun I think gun safety should be taught in schools.  I just read an article ( https://www.foxnews.com/us/teen-charged-after-bullet-fired-at-road-sign-fatally-struck-retired-marine-sitting-on-porch-officia…
  • @ThangNguyenWith all the gun laws we have in place now, we can see it is not working.  Why would anyone think that more of something that doesn't work would work better?  You are only kidding yourself if you think you are trying to reduce gun violen…
  • @chelc I grew up very different from you.  I grew up in the city and I had never touched a gun until after I was married.  I was invited to shoot skeet by a coworker at the shooting range. It was a lot of fun.  I hadn't touched a gun again until my …
  • I do agree 48 hour of training would be great for any competitive defensive pistol shooter to have but not to just own a gun.  The good pistol courses cost about $500. for an eight hour day.  Once you learn the four gun safety rules (1- A gun is alw…
  • If the fear of punishment by the law doesn't stop a criminal from breaking the law it is up to us to stop the crime ourselves or be a victim.  The law can only take action after the crime is committed unless the police get there first.I agree with y…
  • I don't see the point of making bumpstocks illegal if you are not going to do anything illegal with them.  If a criminal wants to get one they are going to get one if they are legal or not.
  • If someone wants to shoot you you have more of a chance defending yourself if you have a gun than if you don't.  You also have less of a chance of somebody wanting to shoot you if you have a gun. I think if more people who were trying to reduce life…
  • If a criminal is trying to shoot you or someone without a gun the more law abiding people you have around you with guns the better your chances of surviving.  Learning about gun safety and how to protect ourselves with them is a healthy way to reduc…
  • I don't understand what makes people think it is the gun that cause problems.  If a criminal uses a gun in a crime it doesn't make the gun bad it makes the criminal bad for commiting a crime.  Besides there are more law abiding people that make guns…
  • I appreciate your input but how are we going to stop the people who buy guns illegally from getting them.  Keeping guns from law abiding citizens will not stop crime.  NRA only supports legal guns and legal citizen'sgun rights.  Your argument only s…
  • @tangascootac:   Reporting unscrupulous people to the proper  authorities is pretty self explanatory and promoting a peace full life style would be acting in in a way you would want other people to act around you in a peaceful way like not breaking …
  • I think being more vigilant in promoting a peaceful lifestyle and reporting unscrupulous people to the proper  authorities would be a start.   
  • @ChristtopherABrown, @ianagmdc It's like saying if we are all nice to each other there is no need for violence.
  • @tangascootac:  I am not trying to avoid your question but I don't have an answer.
  • @Anonytated said,  "Now I'm sure a lot of people are concerned about the wrong household having a gun. This is something about gun control that I lean left on (if we're going to get political.) That's where I believe we need heavier background check…
  • ChristopherABrown   Is there a way to get effective mental health care and education of parents and community relating to values and human purposes other than ptacticing and creating good habits.
  • Afreenish So what type of gun research do you want to see be done.  Maybe we can get some research done here. 
  • @higgsb:  None of my guns ever lead to a fatality or homicide.  I think you meant less criminals with guns would lead to less fatalities and homicides That is totally different.  If you didn't mean that please explain.
  • ianagmdc  Could you please clarify.  Did you mean military style weapons which are made to look like military weapons, weapons that are used by soldier, someplace where civilians can buy military weapons or something else. 
  • The sensible gun laws are already in place.  The problem is criminals are breaking those laws. Nothing gets accomplished so the antis try to punish gun owners by making nonsense laws and convinving people they are trying to do something to stop viol…
  • Sorry I posted my other comment in the wrong thread.  Because I have limited internet use I compose my comments off line and then posted it in the wrong thread.The point I was trying to get across is that my training teaches me that drawing my gun w…
  •         As far as women go, more and more women are getting their conceal carry weapon permits to protect themselves.  I think more because of kidnappers and rapists.  I think a lot of women have a fear of reporting their companions to the police.  …
  • It scares the hell out of me too but probably for different reasons.  This may sound crazy but I think we need to arm all law abiding people that are trained with guns and take the guns away from criminals.  We could call it Gun Control Day.  We cou…
  • Just knowing that you care is helpful to me.  Thanks for the response.  If it helps, I keep my guns and riffles locked in a secure safe when not in use.  Nothing is scarier to me than if a criminal or child or someone who doesn't understand guns wou…
  • I think there are many benefits to guns beside hunting.  I bought my first handgun out of fear because of terrorist, crime and living very rurally.  It has been a godsend to me.  Because I want to be proficient with it I started practicing with it a…
  • I am not trying to win an argument or cause nauseum and I respect your argument.  I am trying to learn by it.  I think this topic is worthy of a discussion where we express our opinions. I am guilty of assuming you are from the USA(where I live) and…
