I would say the standardization would be the FBI. There's a federal law against interstate transportation of firearms. Sometimes it's the people who are supposed to uphold the law are doing the smuggling.

States aren't whimsical. They answer directly to their people unlike the federal government.
I haven't a problem with states rights.

However, when dealing with a national concern, states are whimsical from it's macro point of view.

Coherence and consistency can best be maintained federally.

If YOU were as serious as you say, then YOU wouldn't be making ANY of the entirely idiotic remarks to which you are given.

I am so disappointed in you.
You would send me where? Will you be joining me? Two for the price of one?
They would let me go and detain you! hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha ha. Too funny! You walked into that one.
You are pretentious in the extreme.
I'm going to guess that you suffer clinical narcissism, i.e., you have such a high opinion of yourself, that it qualifies as the 'God complex,'(you're never wrong on anything, regardless).

Once again, for the umpteenth time: Prior to the introduction of those thoroughly hideous substances, mass shootings were extremely rare. But as soon as those appeared on the scene, then those mass shootings began to multiply.
So, it simply IS NOT the guns, inasmuch as there always plenty of guns available.
The balance of the evidence weights AGAINST those drugs, and NOT the guns.
YOUR remarks then, indicate that YOU are either TOTALLY uninformed, OR that YOU are yet another PAID SHILL.
I'll vote for the latter.
you could probably coorelate it with cell phones, corn syrup, ipod use, cable TV or a million other things...

But since these drugs are so common why not do what we can to keep the most dangerous weapons away from these folks instead of promoting paranoia and ever expanding personal arsenals?

hmmm what do gunsuckers do when they want to travel outside the US ?-there would not be many countries where they would be able to carry their semi autos - they must feel terribly unsafe when they are unarmed and abroad in such dangerous places as london, paris berlin hong kong, singapore , beijing , sydney mumbai , auckland, rio de janeiro , montevideo , toronto , etc etc
guess they arent too keen to leave the country.- unless they join the army I guess - hmm start a war so the gunnuts can see the world ha ha ha - and shoot people -ha ha ha

Correct, he makes sure his family is protected by people with guns.
Always has, always will.
He just thinks you are to worthless to have agu to protect yourself.
Technically, in your case, he may have a point.
Children of ALL presidents are protected . That's understandable.

He never said I was worthless and shouldn't have a gun. He's talking about people like you.

GIVE IT UP!

Look at you being all brainwashed by the NRA ad already.....Obama is not in charge of whether or not his kids are protected you bloody idiot. The same consideration was given to the Bush's and Reagan Clinton etc....The Secret Sevice it there to protect all Presidents and their families...but you wouldn't understand that because you are a gun owning looney that only listens to what is put out by the NRA...and they know how to manipulate the brain deads FFS......ROTFLMAO

they are trained and the purpose is to defend the country rather than keeping a standing army. Not like here where the "gun right" has been disconnected from a real purpose.
