When will this madness stop? It is not just the National Rifle Association, although the group is certainly a major part of the problem. The minute someone of authority advocates sensible gun laws and the outlawing of automatic weapons and clips that can hold up to 90 rounds of ammunition, the pro-gun advocates like Robert Witcher immediately think the government is trying to take all their guns away and “only the bad guys will have guns.”(See Witcher’s letter,“It’s a mistake to disarm good guys.”)

When the Second Amendment was added to our Constitution, I’m quite certain our forefathers did not envision automatic weapons that are only designed to kill other people. I am totally not against the right of any qualified person to own a gun for protection, hunting or just target practice. This is every American’s right. However, lately this country is becoming a nation of hatred and violence. Many video games are so violent, young people become immune to the senseless slaughter.

Gun laws must be strengthened and gun shows should not be excluded from taking background checks on buyers. Every gun show should have someone from the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives on the premises to ensure these background checks are legitimate.

No other civilized country in the world comes close to the number of violent gun deaths that occur in this country in a year. Of course, no laws can guarantee there will never be anymore gun violence, but maybe they at least cut down on this senseless slaughter.

"Many video games are so violent, young people become immune to the senseless slaughter."

You say that video games cause young people to become immune to the saughter of others, and you do not call for the banning of violent video games? What kind of hypocrite are you?

Or is this just a way or you to further your anti-gun agenda?

Our guns ARE regulated, just not in the manner in which you would like. The problem IS, is that our CURRENT LAWS are not ENFORCED very well, when gun crimes are committed, sentances are WAY TOO LENIENT, and some laws go way over the line, like a law-abiding CCW holder being banned from carrying a handgun in certain places, like schools. The ban on carrying a gun in a school isn't working too well, is it??

So how do you know what the FOUNDING FATHERS were thinking when they included the 2nd AMENDMENT in our Constitution? Don't you think that they knew about the evolution of weapons over the previous thousands of years?

Want to stop gun show sales with no background check? HERE'S THE SOLUTION:

Require and allow private, unlicensed sellers at gun shows to go to a licensed gun dealer at the show, and the licensed gun dealer does the criminal background check, for a modest fee, that the gun buyer pays. The federal gun buyer form gets filled out, but the private seller is required to keep it for 10 years. PROBLEM SOLVED.

But that won't stop me or anyone else from selling a gun from my home, which probably happens more often than you think. Nor will it stop people from stealing guns either.

Last year 440 Chicago school kids were shot. Funny how that happens in our savior Obamas city.

I am, and I DO. When I sell a gun, in a private sale, I REQUIRE that the buyer show me some PROOF that a background check has been done on them recently, then I write down on a piece of paper the gun model, serial number, the buyer's DOB, driver's license info, address, and any other personal info on the buyer. What's wrong with that?

thing is, many rapists will not go after a victim who either shows a firearm. or makes the rapist think the possible victim has one.
.
http://extranosalley.com/... The latest prisoners surveys estimate that 3,600 rapes a day are never attempted because the victim either showed a gun, said she had a gun, or the rapist though the victim had a gun for some other reason.
.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/07... A stranger had broken into her home through a bathroom window. She had called 911, but the police had arrived too late—a half hour after a brutal rape.
.
http://www.learnaboutguns.com/2008/11/03/woma... that those who oppose gun rights would take note of cases like this, as well as countless other examples where women were able to defend themselves with gun, instead of being defenseless victims. Had this woman been unarmed, she would have been raped twice, and a convicted sex offender would still be on the loose and able to victimize others. Instead, this woman exercised her constitutional right to gun ownership and self defense, and was able to save herself.
.
http://www.mcrgo.org/mcrgo/doc_pdf/mi_cchl_br... Myth: The law will make people less safe.
Fact: Criminals are well aware of the new law and that it is more likely that anyone they attack may be armed.
Prison interviews with street criminals confirm that their greatest fear is encountering an armed citizen.
