Response to discntnt_irny_srcsm (Reply #31)

37. in any given population, there are always going to be exceptions

So if we did all the things you suggest, i still think there will be criminals/morons/lunatics that will use the weapons at hand to inflict the greatest damage. I would suggest:

- for the self-defense argument: people should be able to buy certain types of guns and cartridges. This would include handguns, shotguns, rifles with limited cartridge sizes
- full background checks on everyone buying a gun. time should not be a factor in completing the check. It must be reasonable and complete
- all laws should be rigorously enforced (especially gun laws)
- there must be a requirement to purchase liability insurance for anyone carrying a gun
- weapons and bullets that can inflict damage above a threshold should be banned from civilian use
