YES!!! We will just criminalize the possession of guns. That will make all the trouble go away.

hold on tonto..did i say anything about criminalization?

of course that's the fear factor again from the little brains with their big guns..there always has to be something to be afraid of..
its either the mad gunman at the olive garden or the nazi stormtrooper tearing ur gun from ur cold dead hand..

get a grip and (i know it's hard for u hun) but try to be reasonable..the virtual unfettered possession of firearms that we have had in this country has NOT worked..violence has not subsided but increased..how about trying something else?

i dont want to make it criminal to own a gun, or i would be a criminal as well..i want gun owners to be responsible for the weapons they own because they havent been.

We have enough laws on the books already. The problem is that nearly all of the people who commit these crimes obtained their guns illegally to begin with. The majority of laws regarding gun purchases are pretty much like a padlock in that the only thing that is accomplished is that the laws keep an honest man honest. Do you really think that when some punk purchases a gun for the purpose of blowing away whoever gets in his way, that the punk is going to give a damn that he broke the law? You need to take off those rose colored glasses and step into the real world.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but most of the 'illegal' weapons used by criminals were legal at one point in the past... before they were stolen from their law-abiding owner, or before they were brought to a pawn show and re-sold below the counter... or legally bought by person A who then passed it on to person B (and, if someone asks, A will say he lost the gun or it was stolen)...

So, you may like it or not, but: the greater the number of legal firearms, and the easier it is to obtain a firearm legally, the higher becomes the number of guns that will somehow find their way to the dark side. That's not to hard to understand, right?

Of course YOU take good care of your firearm, don't lend it to someone or resell it, keep it in a locked cabinet unless you carry it with you, etc etc... but can you be sure your neighbor is as careful? Maybe he gets into financial trouble next year and is happy to sell his gun for a couple of bucks.

A few simple rules, enforced in all 50 states and without any exception, may help: Every prospective gun owner must take a course on safe handling of firearms, and obtain a permit (similar to the mandate to have a drivers license before you drive a car - few people would object that, right?)
Each firearm needs to be registered (just like a car, again) and must only be used by their owner, or another permit holder in the presence of the owner. Loss, theft or resale of each firearm must be reported immediately. Firearms must be kept in locked safety cabinet unless within the reach of their owner. Law enforcement has the right to control compliance with these rules at any time. Noncompliance leads to revocation of license.

These rules would enable law-abiding citzens to keep their guns for hunting, sports, or their personal safety if they deem it necessary. Yet they would make it more difficult for criminals to obtain guns. So what's the problem???

LOL - someone named AnnaLee giving "only" her first name - like she would be REALLY hard to find if they wanted to do something to her. The Dispatch should not have used that name at all - well done.

There's no such thing as an illegal weapon.
