See I think if guns were treated as other property that could potentially cause damage like cars it may help. Like not only does the original purchaser have to register it but each time it changes hands it must be registered by the new owner and madatory insurance. With penalities for those who don't follow the laws. Like I said to have my AmStaf(who I consider more a family member than property)she must be registered and a certain amount of insurance carried in case she ever does any harm. Even though she never has, just because other dogs with irresponsible owners have. She has had more training and education than most people and is better behaved than any child I know, yet she has to be treated like a lethal weapon.

I would be fine if they register and report sales of any weapons and making it mandatory that they be registered under new owner if sold and have a new background check done and if there is a pattern of sudden purchases or flags that they have even me on a watch list if it saved lives or stopped an episode of gun violence. Although I would feel bad for how bored whoever is watching me is going to be if they did that with my life they would probably send me flowers or something I am just a boring bachelor with a kid I go from home drop the kid off work pick the kid up and go home. Haha and maybe go to Wally world once a week.

Well maybe that would be another benefit, they would have to hire people to these "tracking"jobs therefore creating jobs! Jobs created, public safety improved and you may end up getting flowers. Everybody wins! Lol

Also taxes/registration fees would generate revenue.

Yeah it would give those elected more money to throw away too so they would be happy haha.I have been actually thinking about getting liability on my guns too you never know even if you had a justified shooting that doesn't mean that someone couldn't sue you. I hope it don't happen but I hope I don't get into a car wreck either but I have to have insurance for that.

I think sos has some good ideas. Maybe the proposed taxes and or fees could go to a fund for victims of gun crimes or maybe to an educational fund to teach people about gun safety and better parenting.I also like to see this discussion going in a more productive direction instead of just the usual name calling and political drivel.

I just watched bill oreilly tonight talking about how we new to have some gun control laws tonight to someone he was debating with and he had it all wrong the guy he was arguing with on there was dealing with him not knowing anything at all he had his facts wrong and the guy he was debating with didn't call him out on what he was talking about. It looked almost staged. Bill was saying the shooter had purchased 60000 rounds which would cost 30000.00 dollars roughly.bill is ok with guns but wants tracking on ammo and guns like I do and some of my anti gun friends here do. It is sickening to me that people who report distorted facts even when it leans to the other side or maybe just don't know what in the heck they are talking about. It hurts gun owners like me because some believe what he was saying as gospel and think people can buy full auto weapons and whatnot and it not go unreported. Also he is scaring pro gun no limit NRA nuts in thinking someone on fox wants gun control in the end what needs to get accomplished doesn't.

Probably part of the strategy, scare people and get them confused then they will just shut up about it.

We are in a mess it doesn't matter who is elected for any office I just hope everyone can see that.it's off topic but it is the truth. All of them are using hot topic issues to sway voters be it guns gay marriage or abortion, talking themselves up where they are no better that who they are running against and when you go to vote just try and figure out who is going to blow less of our money and cross your fingers. Everybody ought to be upset with all of them. Those running and in office. From those who don't hurt for anything right down to those on welfare.

I typically don't trust any politician no matter what party they belong to. I do think its a mistake for people to vote party lines or to buy into campaign promises. Really people you've known your whole life break promises everyday so why anyone thinks some politician who don't even know you is gonna keep their promises is beyond me.I feel that anymore when you go to vote the best you can do is try to pick the lesser of two evils.

Concealed gun owner shoots own buttocks and wounds children at Dallas Walmart:

A licensed concealed handgun owner from Waco, Texas hurt more than his pride on Monday when his weapon accidentally discharged while he was reaching for his wallet at a Dallas Walmart store.

Police said that Todd Canady, 23, was in the checkout line when he fired the pistol he was carrying inside his pants.

“The bullet struck Canady in the buttock, then ricochet on the floor and broke into pieces,” KDFW reported. Two children and a woman were also wounded when they were struck by bullet fragments.

Other reports indicated that the bullet grazed Canady’s leg he when dropped the Springfield .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol. Shards of concrete from the floor were said to have caused the wounds to the woman and children.

Although injured, the suspect allegedly ran from the store when he was confronted by an off-duty officer.

After catching up with Canady, officers determined that he had a valid concealed carry permit, but charged with evading arrest. He may also be charged with felony injury to a child.

Canady was being held on $1,000 bond.

I think its funny you mentioned "liability" on your guns may come in handy even in a justified shooting. Today I talked to a lady at the doctors office who was telling me a story about her husband's aunt. Apparently the aunt played bingo every Wednesday night. A neighbor had been watching her and learning her routine because he planned to break in and rob her while she was out at bingo. Well one Wednesday she decided to not go because she had an eye doctor appointment the next morning, she let her daughter take her car home because the daughter was going to be driving her. Anyway the guy broke in, because he didn't see her car and thought she had gone to bingo like always. He came in through a kitchen door and surprised the lady while she was chopping fruit. Startled she stabbed him in the hand and shoulder with the knife she was using. He was arrested and charged with burglary but filed a civil case against the lady for pain, doctor's bills and emotional suffering and damned if he didn't win. Crazy huh?

A 19 year old went into a convenience store in Oklahoma City with a pistol tucked int the front of his pants, told the clerk "this is a stick-up, started to pull the gun from his pants and the gun went off. He fell on the floor and told the lady "never mind, call an ambulance". True story! That didn't sway the judge very much. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison, not to mention his love life messed up. Justice served!

wasn't there one about some indians? It was a long time ago I dont know if it made a news story anywhere. They didn't have many guns at all and someone moved in on them onto some land they were just squatting on and shot a bunch of them and kicked them of their land and what have you?We don't have to worry about this anymore obviously we have our titles and deeds to our property so we are entitled to it and nobody can take it from us. I'm sure we never have to worry about actually I mean it only happened like that one time so I'm probably just being silly wanting my assault rifle and all.Plus we have the military who is everywhere but here thanks to fighting dumb wars and meddling in crap we have no business in and the police who is always right there exactly when you need them.
