President Barack Obama has invited representatives from rival interest groups to a series of "active listening" discussions on gun safety measures, contending "we can get beyond wedge issues and stale political debates to find a sensible, intelligent way to make the United States of America a safer, stronger place."

A discussion on gun control means more gun control laws. There is no benefit to the gun owner, only to the gun hater. Why should we discuss anything if we stand to lose before we discuss.

The cause of most gun violence is the govt's prohibition on street drugs. The solution is to legalize street drugs, the solution to gun crime is not more gun control laws. Restricting guns actually increases crime and makes us less safe.

Obama, a Harvard law school grad, needs to discuss the drug laws, not the gun laws.

The 2nd amendment prohibits govt from regulating guns. That is the amendment's only purpose. Gun control is both immoral and illegal (and unAmerican).

Would two wolves and a sheep debate on ways to make the sheep safer? The sheep will keep his gun, lest the wolves get hungry.
