If I understood it correctly this bill also called for all people who have been
prescribed anti-depressants by a medical doctor to be placed permanently on the
NICS list and be banned for life from purchasing a gun.If that is true,
then many returning soldiers who have sufferes PTSD and recovered as well as
parents who have lost a child, children who have lost a parent, and those who
have had other short term boughts with depression that was treated succesfully
by a doctor would all be banned for life with no way to be removed from this
even 10 or more years after treatment.Is this really a wise idea?
Gun control laws have never stopped bad people from getting guns, never have,
never will! But what does that matter to some people? Clap your hands over your
ears and shut your eyes and hyperventilate over and over again, "gun
control, gun control" while criminals rule the streets with guns that they
obtained because they broke existing gun control laws that they will never obey.
Its like blaming spoons for obesity or matches for arson! Not only is it totally
wrong but its just plain stupid!
a very modest proposal? In thousands of minds it was a bit more than modest. To
control transfers of gun ownership between family members is severe in many
minds. What is was was a veiled attempt to create a National Gun registry.As
Senator Lee said (you might have heard of him) to track all guns you need to
know where all guns are. Sen.Bennett the old saying "The Camels nose is in
tent is very applicable in this instance.
Yes, it should be a priority right now, bob.
Okay, Bob, then when should it be a priority? I'm sure the Republican/NRA
answer is never.
Kent C. Deforrest, A number one priority should be to get gangs off the
streets, put rapist/child molesters in prison until they can be executed. Lockup
alcoholics and drug addicts who commit crimes and never allow them to drink or
do drugs again. If you people really want to do something then start with this.
More kids, and adults are harmed or killed by gangs, and the effects of drugs
and alcohol everyday, rather than a wack job person who goes on a killing spree
in one afternoon. Life is precious no matter what, even when the media does not
flock to it like dung beetles.
