11. This ^^^ more and more nutjob gunners are emerging from the murky depths into the light of day.

The crazy of the few is oozing out. Sane gun owners and apologists need to step up their game...and digging heels in the NRA Wild Wild West scenario is definitely not enough any more. Same for us former "banners"...time to figure it out sanely.

Every death or injury by gun is increasingly getting airspace and airtime...social media...as it should be. It will ultimately go the way of smoking cigarettes in airplanes and advertising the joys of drinking liquor during family time TV. Is it just a coincidence that it's called the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms? It's definitely not the gunners marketing arm of the government.

5. There's not very much political resistance to this

It's just nobody can come up with a way for Congress to regulate private intrastate commerce that would survive the current Supreme Court.

Edit: typo

9. I certainly hope so. This is the one idea I think would do any good

I certainly hope we try. Maybe Congress can "gently persuade" the states to do it, to sidestep Constitutional issues.

8. Correct, except I think you mean

"intrastate"..I don't think it would survive any scotus at the federal level..the trick is getting states to enact a requirement...maybe if they would fund and enable the existing system more states would enact such legislation..

12. The system is in place

they just need to increase funding NICS and enable it for this purpose..many states would enact private sale checks if the state didn't have to fund it.

15. The 11% were from Mexican drug cartels, those who arm them

and grade school mass murderers.
