31. I know that violence including gun crime has been declining steadily for some time now

I also know there's strong evidence that links this decline to a lowering of lead levels in our environment, largely but not entirely due to tetra-ethyl lead being banned by law.

You accused me of hating guns, I don't hate any inanimate object and I try with varying degrees of success not to hate any person either.

I have decided upon reflection over the last few weeks of debate that since a complete gun ban is unworkable in the USA then I'm not in favor of that, you can have anything you can afford to buy and shoot with some caveats.

What I want to see is your gun if you are in public, no more concealed carry, I want be able to remove myself from the vicinity of armed persons in public places. I want licensing and insurance for use *or* criminal misuse of the gun, including if the weapon is stolen and used to commit a crime and the owner can be shown negligent in securing it. Gun licensing records should be searchable online by the public.

I also want to see heavy mandatory penalties for carrying a concealed gun.

That's really my bottom line.
