Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

OK, here are some suggestions without impeding 2A rights. [View all]

We have the technology to implement the following. Do we have the will?

1. All semi-automatics, handguns and long guns, must be fitted with biometric safeties and have GPS chips embedded.
2. Local authority has overriding power to declare gun-free zones.
3. All owners of semi-autos should pass psych evaluation, with periodic reviews.
4. Background checks should be limited to history of violence or mental instability.
5. Owners of revolvers, shotguns and bolt action rifles would only be subject to background checks.
6. No carry without special certification and carry weapon must have GPS chip.

The GPS chip is very important and totally doable. With a smartphone app, fellow carriers and others would be aware of who was armed or not. The carriers get to see where the other good guys are and the rest of us have more options in terms of our movements.
