People will take 'junk' they don't want to any buy back. It's a waste of time and money.
One thing that I do think might be installed is that at gun shows and events like that, there could be background checks and a 3 day waiting period like at any dealer. But even that is ineffective. If you have a record that would block you from buying a gun, you'd just have a friend or relative do it for you.
It's hypocritical to defend abortion, and I know that is not what is being discussed here, and then act appalled in the face of this tragedy in CT. Far more than 20 children a day are killed by abortion.
It's just not done in public or reported on by the national media. I dare any media outlet to give a daily count of the abortions performed the day or week before it's publication or newscast.
This was a horrific event. And there will be more. This is not the beginning nor will there ever be an end to man's inhumanity to man.
Last Friday hit me very hard, as it did the whole world.
Sorry it took me so long to reply and thank you for a reasonable post on the subject at hand.At this point I'm for whatever works and like your idea of background checks and three day waiting period at gun shows.But do see your point that a stand in could be used in order to obtain a weapon.
The thing about abortion is that it is personal and a choice which is quite different than a madman bent on destruction and causing pain to many.
It was terrible and so shocking to us all.I'm sure I don't have any answers and according to at least one my lack of knowledge on weaponry prohibits me from having any thought on the matter,but we can only hope that the more intelligent among us can come up with something to help in the future.

If the result is the same type of weapon that was banned under the law,I would call it skirting.
They "defined" the type of weapons they were banning in the law. If a weapon doesn't fit that definition, it isn't that "type".

Oh, I feel she was absolutely sleeping when murdered. How he had access to the guns is beyond me. Given his history, there should not have been a weapon in the same house with him.
What in his history are you referring to?

Your understanding is the problem. There are over 20,000 Federal, State, County , Municipal, and City frearms laws. How can they all be lax?
Not to mention there are hundreds of different definitions of "assault weapons" among them...

And here I thought most of you had a dislike for LE.
Not at all, we just realize that they can't be everywhere at every time. What's the saying.. "When seconds count, the police are only minutes away"... They (law enforcement) know it too.

If your home is broken into and you are bashed in the head as the take you to yoir bank to withdrawal your money just remind those criminals that you will sue them. I am sure that will make them tell you sorry and fix the door they busted on the way in.

Meanwhile if they break into my home I will kill them and call the coroner to come pick up the carcasses before they start drawing flies.

Apparently you have no idea how many cops are unstable. Oh and not just any person can get a CCW license in Ohio. It requires a pretty extensive background check, a course, and passing a test.

Now your argument is shot down by leftists when we use the same threat of suing everyone if we are harmed by gun violence in an area/business that refuses to allow us to carry our concealed weapon.

Oh I forgot. F U too.:-)

No weapons ban is needed. As citizens we need to be well armed to keep the vermin in check.
