Gun control. What are your thoughts? More control needed. less? A hot topic going way back to Columbine or Dumblane. Share your thoughts.

What got me started on this topic was a book recently released on Kindle, The Second Amendment (links below). Sorta John Grisham meets Vince Flynn type of thriller.

But not only did it really made me think about gun control, but was one of the best thrillers I ever read (Amazon Kindle links below). I mean WOW factor good. I also see that publishers tried to stop it being read for over ten years.

For, against... shout your thoughts!!!

There needs to be a gun tax to raise money tor all the medical care needed to take care of shooting victims, andvalso to cover costs for all the security we will need. Let the NRA backers have all the guns they want, but have an additional tax in addition to a gun permit tax.$500 a year for each hand gun.$2000 per year for each assault weapon. If someone is caught with a gun without having paid the tax, it is a mandatory year in prison, and all guns confiscated, with loss of right to have a gun for ten years. Unlawful possession of firearm would be an automatic five years jailtime without parole. Once convicted of any felony, no gun permit allowed for lifetime. Once diagnosed with any personality disorder or psychosis, no gun ownership allowed ever. If someone sells the gun to such person and is caught, mandatory year in prison.

Simple fix.

So simple.

Glad I'm not a member of the NRA. That's money better spent on ammo and range time.

Idk why Gun Control is facing such stiff opposition in the US. It's very necessary and should be implemented.

Why should I be punished for a crime someone else committed?

A better question to ask would be, why are semi automatic and automatic weapons necessary?

But the current laws are too much relaxed. Anybody can purchase and own guns even AK 47s and other automatic assault weapons. There has to be some level of control.

Controls are already in place. Anybody cannot "purchase and own guns even AK 47s and other automatic assault weapons."

Not sure where you really are from but you need to research US gun laws before running off at the mouth like a warm bottle of beer. There are literally thousands of firearms laws already in place from the federal level all the way down to state, county, city and villages. Will more laws do what those currently enacted have not?

Then Ban Guns altogether! Why have Guns anyway if little kids get shot at anyhow. Maybe America needs to let go of her "gun addiction" There is more to life than guns.

Answer one question: Are you an American, a foreign national living in America or a Kenyan living outside America?

You could buy and install secure 'unbreakable' doors and alarm systems. Plus while attempting to save your child you maybe shoot your child as well by accident. Things never go as smoothly as we expect them to
