There is NO “reasonable” gun control.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
"Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."
Reasonable gun control is a 6 inch circle at 15 yards, for rapid fire pistol.
I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.
i would. however the words i would use to retort to this would violate the profanity rules of this board. so ill stay quiet. But i think you get my drift.
Where under our Constitution does the Government get the power to do any of these things?
Kennesaw Ga and Switzerland have reasonable gun control. Every elegible citizen is required to own a firearm, and in Switzerland's case, a fully capable combat ready assualt rifle in every home.
Did I mention that the Crime rates in Kennesaw and Switzerland are negligble? They are. Look it up. Even the inmates at the local Kennesaw prison, on TV, admit that they will not go to Kennesaw, becasue it is to dangerous for them.
9) Usage of fees
When do Government "fees" ever actually get used for their original intended purpose? For instance the astronomical cigarette taxes. Where is all of that $$$ going as in everywhere but, where it originally was supposed to go.
Ok I read them. However, they only affect the law abiding citizen. So to me, reasonable gun control is something that I would consider to be something that makes people feel better. How about something that will actually help, like say, reasonable criminal control. Let me propose a ONE strike and you're out deal for any violent crime? Now, isn't that easier with a lot less paperwork?

BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ = Wrong.
1) Progressive Left (call them what you want = the 60's hippies running our Federal Govt right now) will not punish criminals.
2) One Strike would hurt more Law Abiding Citizens who run against ignorant gun laws than professional criminals.
Ummmm .....NO. haha
