43. Well then stop boxing the nation into your corner
Reply from my wife, this was her idea and wanted her to explain.
Regressive thinking can also be applying a small specific situation to an entire nation. The last time I heard about a mass shooting or a gun being used for a mass shooting in yours or other rural areas like yours was....can't think of one. Let's worry about the application for your small niche when it happens. I am sure that there are a lot of rules, laws or regulations that are not enforced in your area such as auto insurance just to name one.
Enforcement and compliance will start from the densely populated areas out. I am sure that there would be groups that would help people that needed guns for food. However, if the person that needed that gun for food was mentally unstable and/or a sociopath maybe you and all of us would be better off if he didn't have one. I just want to depoliticize the problem of responsible gun ownership in order to make it a reality.
Insurance companies will figure out how to keep rates down for responsible owners (and still make a profit - the new American way) all based on their tables and shall we say your "caliber rating" from TRW and others! Certainly guns already in circulation will be the biggest problem to organize, but does that mean we shouldn't try? The technology today tracks my cell phone where ever it goes; how about RFID tags to track guns? We had a freeway shooter here in southeast Michigan just a few months ago. How great it would have been that all new guns and all other guns certified for insurance to have the requirement of a tag and to be registered in a ballistics database. The first bullet recovered would have led them to the gun and there wouldn't have been several months of fear just driving on the freeway.
What is also extremely regressive is just dismissing an opportunity to civilize our society instead of trying to figure out how to make it work in your community since you can recognize your specific issues. Heck, it might even create a few jobs to help alleviate some poverty.
And the rich have had, have and always will have everything that they want. To me that is just a cliche used to perpetuate negative thinking.
