Excellent comment that Bloomberg said"
Vote for common sense gun laws or we will throw you out. Enough," Bloomberg declared.
Yes, as I support the 2nd Amendment, we as Americans are obligated to insure that everyone that owns a weapon be responsible. This includes, but is not limited to:
Democrats, Republicans, Independents. From one end of the spectrum to the other.

The issue there is: there is no "common sense: in "common sense gun laws", merely emotion.

We have many gun laws across this country that many will agree are common sense (some not so much). What doesn't make sense about them is the fact that prosecutors don't see any jury appeal. Then the punishment for those common sense gun laws is plea bargained away or those charges are never filed.

The suggestions made lately are not common sense gun laws. As mentioned the latest common sense gun laws are emotional gun laws. They serve no purpose other than to warm the hearts of those that pass them.

What are some of your "common sense" suggestions that aren't already laws and would actually work?

GWD do you for one Nano second believe this common sense gun laws Bloomberg is referring to is about responsible gun ownership do you? Bloomberg’s common sense gun laws are about banning, restricting and ultimate gun confiscation.
Here’s a good place to start common sense gun laws is to enforce and follow up on current gun laws first.

You're never one to shy away from kissing it when it counts, that's for sure.

As others have and will continue mentioning, follow up with current gun laws and prosecutions. Anything that Bloomberg or others come out saying, is nothing more than "knee jerk, feel goid" reactions that only punish law abiding citizens.

I doubt very seriously that anyone that lies about being a member of the NRA actually supports the 2nd Amendment! You're one of those "but" people.

I want to see responsibility in gun ownership. Training, safety, accountabililty.I have seen support of a gun control plan (GCP), but that issue can get out of control and help no one. With more weapons than every person in America, trying to reigning any in makes no sense.

Would you like for me to transfer my membership to your address? All I get is e-mails and letters begging financial support. A magazine , I choose comes in monthly, but have yet to see even a news letter from the NRA. I did get a gold colored pen shaped like a bullet that has since been lost.

There is responsible gun ownership, all around you. You're just too narrow minded to see it. All you see (or want to hear) is anything that relates your so-called "gcp." YOU have no say in how many we own and for what purpose. Get over it...

I doubt you could just "transfer" a membership over to another person (if you had one). If, and I say IF you were getting thise emails, anyone can. Just like anywhere else, if you give out your email address, you'll start receiving them regardless of whether or not if you bought something.

I've offered before to exchange emails and you could send proof. But like always, you back peddle. That's who you are.

You are back to the "use the laws already on the book argument" it seems.

Exactly what training do you want to see that isn't already out there. If there was a government mandated ticket punch class who would provide it? Who would sanction it? Who would profit from it? Much like the voter ID law argument, would it make the poor unable to exercise their right?

I don't know of one state that doesn't have some type of child endangerment laws that would cover a no sense gun owner that lets a child get access to their firearms. Can you think of a state that doesn't already have these laws?

The NRA offers a plethora of classes to anyone. The same can't be said for Everytown for Gun Safety. You would think their name implies safety but it doesn't. Are you wanting a government mandated ticket punch class?

Take the laws we already have, and use them. There is very little support for a ban, registration and confiscation "GCP" like Bloomie wants. If you think he wants anything less you are very naïve.

Geez you’re too dense to see that Bloomberg doesn’t care about responsibility in gun ownership, he only wants to ban, restrict, confiscate and ultimately disarm law abiding citizens.
Gun handling, gun safety and training classes can be found by the page full on the internet. Local shooting ranges usually offer multiple classes depending on your experience handling and shooting your weapons. I’m at a loss as to what more can be offered?

What support of a gun control plan (GCP) have you seen that can be enforced? Florida just banned bump stocks by making it a felony to have one, yet how will it get enforced? All someone would need to do is take it off of the weapon and stick it into the bottom drawer for now. BTW did you know you can bump fire a semi-auto with just your finger, how will you ban or enforce a bump finger?

With the exception for self defense, whenever a person shoots a gun and shoots someone, or himself the firearm owner should be held responsible. Every time, all the time!

Criminal charges and news reports is a great way to get through to these gun John Waynes to secure their firearms. In addition, our Congress and state government need to be much more responsible. There are many creative ways I can think of insuring compliance. For example, that nice house that Java Whey owns, where the infraction occurred, can have a lien set against it for failing to comply.

Not going to happen. I don't share my email (personal information) with ones I do not know, especially ones who call me mean names and worse. Your friend from the NRA wants me to contribute for a chance to win some type of 'banned gun' giveaway. Whats that all about? Again, that is all the organization has sent me information on. Asking for a hand-out for money.

That is TERRIBLE that the future of Trump is unknown , uncertain that fools would even mention 2020 as Trump.
Jimmy Carter had better economic than previous ones and Reagan, as one term president.
BILL CLINTON WAS impeached with a surplus economy and Trump makes the highest debted and deficits economy as history of time (since US existed).
Since GW Bush time, the economy has been the pattern of increasing debt and deficits,that it wilL be facing CRASH EVENTUALLY AGAIN AND AGAIN.

Trump evidently has operated collusion and obstruction.
Nixon was involved in the Watergate affair covering-up and tried to block the FBI investigations to have done obstruction.

It is specifically regarding the collusion related to Trump-Clinton election concerning DNC hacking, not just about meddling.

Being interviewed by"60 Minutes", he says he was not asking Russia to release hacked emails, but all facts show he was colluding and already connected knowingly in advance by saying in the debate, "Russia, if you are listening, release (or hack some more) 30,000 emails" , and later he would say China did the meddling while the FBI confirms Russia and not China.

Nixon did not start the Watergate-building break-in beforehand .
So,suppose Nixon linked beforehand to any US persons, burglars, or outsiders (Russia or China) as burglars to steal DNC files. If the burglars were not caught on the spot, Nixon would later DUING a campaign debate say whoever (burglars) got the DNC files release them-It would have been more nightmare if Nixon would have done this, further than what did happen as Watergate break-in was not the connection started by him .

But Trump did much worst than Nixon: this is a clear deliberate attempt of Trump: Republican party cannot connect to any ones or outsiders, or would act on its own part to steal DNC files in elections.

This is apparent of Trump's acts of breaking the system by committing serious illegality during the election (Trump previously said he knew the system in real estate business to do about), as collusion is the absolute collusion, whether linking to US persons or outsiders (Persons or Nations like Russia or China)-------Putin has already admitted before that they were the Russian patriots (Russian persons) doing the hacking and connecting to US persons without saying his connection.

By now, Trump would know all those involved, including him, and Trump shows not only the covering-up like Nixon, he had done obstruction of justice by firing Comey to block the necessary investigations to be against the justice of truths regarding democracy , elections and rules.
Trump shows the immaturity and has been mimicking a lot regarding everything including the investigations, FOR THIS SHOWS THE DEFECTS AS A ROTTEN SYSTEM for Trump to foul up with.
Trump is no good to the state (country): That is not the way of doing and saying things in the public office while Trump shows making a rotten system more rotten.
BY having learned from the previous Nixon saga, Trump's contempt is very wrong and unethical and displays a poor system for him to break , break into, to keep hold of office--but THAT IS NOT THE WAY OF DOING THINGS OF A JUST AND TRUTH WAY OF A DEMOCRACY AND ANY ELECTIONS .
Trump's previous life was a scoundrel crook,tied with corrupt casinos like Las Vegas and thugs like Steve Wynn.
Trump indicates the poor example of tearing the system and sabotaging it.
The Bush-Gore election was decided by the Supreme Court.
The special Counsel has sufficient evidences to present to the Congress or the court to proceed charges of Trump.
Whether they will convict Trump or believe they were collusion and obstruction, that should go from there regarding what has happened in the election, as US system is in disadvantage to be violated and penetrated (by Trump) to stifle it down, to serve no truth and just democracy for US public.

You don't need a new law to take care of your first suggestion. They are already there. You just need prosecutors to do their jobs. The press regularly reports any and all shootings. Unless a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun. Then the reporting is sporadic at best. What is your definition of secured? If a firearm is in your locked house and somebody breaks in should you as the owner of the locked house (secured) be responsible for a criminal act someone else commits? In the real world it will never happen. Liens won't happen in the free states. The ban states maybe, but doubtful. People would quickly put their homes (if they own one) and other titled property into irrevocable trusts to protect them. But most of the people that cause the problems you are concerned about don't bloody likely own any titled property.

You have a few good ideas. Most have already been tried. Most have already had laws written to cover them. But as long as there is prosecutorial discretion...

The GWD is visualizing a police state environment but doesn’t realize the ramifications of implementing laws that’ll allow government or local officials to do “Common sense” safety checks in the home and punish as they see fit. GWD will you allow a government or local compliance checker to snoop for unsecured weapons in your home? What other U.S.C. or BOL rights are you willing to forfeit?

Our U.S.C. should not be affected with gun ownership responsibilities and requirements for safety. What is the acronym for BOL? Is this the Bureau of Licensing? Or should you just Bust of Laughing since I don't know? I believe that the Beginning of Life is with the zero time of embryonic development. But what does this has to do with gun rights? Does this somehow fit in with our 2nd Amendment rights? I don't see an age requirement, so this must be the case. Very little Johnny or Jane in the womb should have their 2nd amendment rights from the start. If you look at it this way, it is impossible for them to have committed any crimes at this age.

You continually show how dense and petty you really are GWD. It should have been BOR for Bill of Rights as in the same document that the 2nd Amendment is written. As many times as that particular acronym has been posted here that relates to our inalienable rights you should have been able to decipher a typing mistake especially when you obviously understood that the acronym U.S.C. referred to the US Constitution. GWD will you allow a government or local compliance checker to snoop for unsecured weapons in your home to implement your GCP? What other U.S.C. or BOR rights are you willing to forfeit?

Perhaps you could think before you type any more about Johnny or Jane having any rights while in the womb GWD. Because many Johnny’s and Jane’s have all of their rights terminated while in the womb?

I thought it might be something else, but wanted to confirm. Need to 'Get Out' more. Yes, it will be my responsibility, as well as yours to insure that any weapons are secured. Don't forget that it is my responsibility to know how to operate a weapon from A-Z, and Z-A. Plus safety. Don't forget about these issues. Good luck finding guns in my house. As the laws stand now, I do not own any weapons. Unless the dogs I own. They even bite me.
