My solution to gun insanity

keep the 2nd amendment but make everyone that wants to be a part of the "well regulated militia" put their name on it.
They train,they respond to orders,their guns are registered and tracked.

For everyone else that wants to hunt and shoot to their little hearts desire they can pay a fee along with the license to sign one out of a official armory.
Just like a library there is a time allowed and if not turned back in on time a fine is charged.
Commit a crime with an official gun or one that is not registered and tracked you go away for a long time or forever in prison.
Release petty drug offenders who are taking up cell space but never committed a real crime to make room.

It fixes the problem quickly and is in keeping with the constitution.

21. I hope you are right. At a minimum we can change how gun culture is viewed.


It took awhile to force smokers, bigots/racists, misogynists, etc., to at least confront the impact of their actions on society. Some said screw society, others changed.

And, to our gun cultists -- I admit, I'm a "bigot" when it comes to people who carry guns in public, accumulate "assault" type weapons, promote more guns in society, practice to shoot people, support NRA (as members or free-riders), etc.

Things like background checks on all firearms transactions, a national firearms ID card, much like the IL. FOID, better funding for the states to report all prohibited persons, better funding for mental health care, a magazine limit of 10 rounds for all firearms, just to name a few.
So your saying that I am mostly spouting NRA talking points is pure crap.

67. A rationale rather than operative. It is the right of the people, not the militia, that shall not be

infringed.

Typically, it is defined as able bodied males between 16-46 (more ore less) properly equipped and drilled with military grade equipment but militia membership is not a prerequisite for the right to keep and bear arms. No one has to ask permission or borrow or show cause because it is an individual right and an enumerated individual right.

Those are the guns that are made and marketed to appeal to gun cultists' baser instincts.

I agree with you that simply banning guns based upon looks is not enough. However, I would ban those who buy guns for looks from buying them. If they are attracted to that crap, they aren't hunters or target shooters.

I'd also ban sights and such that some of our gungeoneers say are necessary for "clearing rooms" -- like they are in a swat squad, or war zone.

The talk of a ban caused more gun sales and to people that are not trained in the use of firearms. I have 20+ years of military experience and have gone through training and federal, state and county background checks for a CCW permit. And no I do not carry most of the time.

Nowadays, military use of guns is mostly laying down a barrage. Don't really think that is effective in a civilian situation -- unless collateral damage doesn't matter to you.

I am glad to hear you don't carry all the time, none of the time would be better.

55. Not how I was trained

we always had practiced if we had limited ammunition. Make your shots count. Only time we used full auto on the M16 was to get used to how it felt and also how it is not accurate and wasted ammunition. That is mainly why the M16A2 went to burst to save ammunition. You can only carry so much ammunition. That is also why the army got away from the larger 7.62 round. Soldiers can carry more, however it was less powerful and does not have the range.

I'm sorry, but this is not a war zone and will if a bunch of right wing extremists (who are armed to the teeth because the gun culture was too stupid to support gun restrictions) try to take over (which they will quickly learn is not possible).

28. well untill you get

United Sates Supreme Court to rule that way it will not happen. The latest rulings specifically state you can have a handgun in your home for self defense and it is a constitutionally protected right, Rifles have not been specifically called out as far as I know. Fully automatic machine guns are limited but fully legal to own and operate. Operating a restaurant or driving a car on public streets is not. I do not need to register or license a car I drive on my property and I do not need a restaurant license to feed my family, only if I sell to the public.

68. How does the legal concept of stare decisis figure into your reasoning that the 2nd Amendment will

be reinterpreted if you can simply come up with the right judges? If memory serves me correctly, the subject of stare decisis always comes up in Supreme Court confirmation hearings, normally in the context of whether or not the nominated judge thinks Roe v. Wade is settled law and the nominee always responds in the affirmative when asked if they believe it is.

I ask because District of Columbia v. Heller was the first Supreme Court case in United States history to decide whether the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. McDonald v. Chicago simply served to clear up the uncertainty left in the wake of District of Columbia v. Heller as to the scope of gun rights in regard to the states. In McDonald v. Chicago, the Court held that the right of an individual to "keep and bear arms" protected by the Second Amendment is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and applies to the states.

"Stare decisis is a legal principle by which judges are obliged to respect the precedent established by prior decisions. The words originate from the phrasing of the principle in the Latin maxim Stare decisis et non quieta movere: "to stand by decisions and not disturb the undisturbed." In a legal context, this is understood to mean that courts should generally abide by precedent and not disturb settled matters."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stare_decisis

Is stare decisis a legal concept you would throw out in order to achieve your goals in regards to gun control?

39. How about keeping it real?

 

I have to admit, some of the suggestions, ideas and solutions to gun control or gun violence posted here can be amusing.
Oftentimes they range from the foolish, laughable, patently absurd and totally unconstitutional.
In fairness though, every now and then (like a blind squirrel finding an acorn), some sound and workable ideas are posted.
Using your post as an example, there's a little bit of everything for everyone.

Exhibit A:
"Commit a crime with an official gun or one that is not registered and tracked you go away for a long time or forever in prison.
Release petty drug offenders who are taking up cell space but never committed a real crime to make room."

I have no idea what this "official gun" you speak of is (officially what), or what would constitute an 'unofficial gun', but that aside (well that, and being "registered" and "tracked"), you hit the nail on the head with "Commit a crime with an official gun or one that is not registered and tracked you go away for a long time or forever in prison.
Release petty drug offenders who are taking up cell space but never committed a real crime to make room." Is an acceptable and effective move that I believe both sides could agree upon.

Now enter the foolish, laughable, patently absurd and totally unconstitutional scene of your act.

Exhibit B: "keep the 2nd amendment but make everyone that wants to be a part of the "well regulated militia" put their name on it.
They train,they respond to orders,their guns are registered and tracked.

For everyone else that wants to hunt and shoot to their little hearts desire they can pay a fee along with the license to sign one out of a official armory.
Just like a library there is a time allowed and if not turned back in on time a fine is charged."

"Official armories"? "Fee and license"? "Train and respond"?

I'll forgo the ridicule and laughter on that for know and simply ask you (and others), do you, have you ever taken the time to read and understand the current interpretation of the 2nd amendment, and recent Supreme Court decisions upholding it?

And people sit here and wonder why the gun control debate is going nowhere.

59. Actually, they had newspapers and print media back then.

Ben Franklin published a periodical, not to mention his little tomes of wisdom. I grew up before computers and calculators. I had to hand write all my school work and only got to use that fabulous new invention a typewriter in college, a manual Royal, which our library had for the students to do their papers, which we had to wait in line for. The most modern calculator I had for my science classes was a slide rule. Yet I am no less educated than anyone else who went to college years later. As a matter of fact, I'm better educated than many who have had all the advantages of computers and the internet.

66. I like it. 'Proud gun owners' should act that way - in public, no secret agendas. That would work -

For those who have good intentions.
