There is no individual right to own a gun illegally, so there is no infringement.
Legal and illegal are merely a matter of time. It used to be illegal to consume alcoholic beverages. It used to be illegal to get an abortion, but alas with the stroke of a pen, you can kill your unborn without fear of reprisal.

What makes you think I CARE, peach fuzz?
I'm not the one insisting that I should have the right to sell weapons top anyone I please.
That would be you, dear.
I don't care if you have one gun, ten guns, or no guns: you arguing for the "right" to sell guns to felons puts my life and the lives of people I care about in jeopardy.
Didn't I just tell you that I don't sell guns? I thought so a**hole.

If you sell a TV set to your next door neighbor and it turns out that the TV is stolen, is that a crime?
If you don't know the guy you are selling a deadly firearm to is a felon, are your responsible for that sale?
Is drinking and driving a crime?

Are you responsible if you sell a car to someone, who unknowingly turns out to be a habitual drunk driving offender?

The similarity is that a gun and a car are inanimate objects, that require the action of an irresponsible human to become dangerous, or deadly.

You are talking though your hat.

It is a FACT, however, that ion the USA 32,000 times a year the issues are resolved with fatal consequences.

When vehicular fatalities approached 53,000 a year, steps were taken to make automobiles safer. People didn't roll around on the floor kicking and screaming "cars don't cause deaths, people do".

Reasonable steps were taken to address fatalities.

Americans are tired of you and yours demanding special rights because (you say) guns are any different than automobiles or any other product made on the market.

That's your opinion, and you are entitled to it, no matter how inaccurate you are.

Violence is the root of the problem, and until we address that problem, nothing will change.

They can shoot into a school, they can go into the school or they can wait at a school bus stop.......but the people wanting to pass these laws have armed security and metal detectors guarding them, but not the kids. I see the problem here.
the law makes it legal now for teachers that train as deputies to be armed in the school but these laws that they just past in Connecticut benefited the maniac's & criminals who care less about laws at least now the law abiding teachers that wish to carry now can legally without being treated as a criminal if the teachers were in possession of a legally own gun.

They won't be going through the same screening & training as regular police deputies, but YES, even policemen go nuts sometimes.
oh yeah, the teachers who choose to do it are going through the same training and shooting certification process as the Sheriff Deputies have to and I agree too even Policemen can go nuts sometimes which is why I prefer to protect myself besides California proved that with Chris Dorner, ex-LAPD police officer and former United States Navy reservist that went nuts.

Sure.
E.G.: if you sell a gun to a felon, we put you into jail and we make sure you no longer have access to a gun again.
We catch a felon in possession of a firearm... we give him/her one year in jail... if he/she coughs up the seller's name, they can split the sentence.
Six months each and we take you off the market.
Sound fair?
Oh, I like that!

Bartenders can be prosecuted for serving obviously drunk people if they end up killing someone in a DUI accident.

People who sell guns should be held liable for any crime committed with that gun.

Same for the owner- if anyone uses their gun to commit a crime, they should be held liable as well.

Only if, each time a law abiding citizen is shot and killed, we can randomly pick one "anti-gun" advocate, and put them in prison for a year. I bet you are going to say, "that isn't fair", because that person had nothing to do with with the crme. On the same note, neither did my gun.
Nope, if you own or sell a gun and a crime is committed with that gun, then you should be held liable.

Maybe that will make people a bit more careful with their guns, like that psycho's mom. At least she's dead, so I guess she was held accountable.

If one person at Sandy Hood had a gun only one person would be dead, the shooter, as soon as he pulled out the gun, and aimed.

So you think if they can't get a gun they're all going to be making their own C-4?

I wish them luck. Most likely they're blow themselves up in the process.

It's a win-win situation!

In a society where flight is preferred over fight, that fight persona would have to be present with the firearm. In other words, we have too many who wish to have their battles fought for them, and then condemn those who have fought. Ain't that right bareass and professor and sheep?

The obvious differnce being the primary purpose of a car is transportation, while the primary purpose of a gun is to kill things with.

Btw, if you let someone use your car and they get in an accident, you CAN be held liable.

And just how do you intend to prevent people from being violent?

You can't put everyone person on the planet in isolation.

Humans are violent creatures. If two or more people are together, eventually violence will occur.

All we can do is attempt to minimize the violence people can do by limiting the amount of deadly weapons available.

That's why nukes or tanks or rpgs or machine guns aren't for sale at the local market.
