    Mods,

    Move this if necessary.

    This nutjob wrote a letter to The Huntington Herald-Dispatch, the local Liberal piece of crap we call the "newspaper." Don't get me started on how ignorant this guy is, I would only get banned for what I'd really like to say and or do.

    Guns should be inspected, registered
    For the increased safety of all our citizens, America should require registration and annual inspection of every gun, civilian and military, manufactured and sold within and imported into America, as we do with vehicles. Autos kill, guns kill!

    No gun "sale or giveaway" would be possible without a new inspection in the name of the new owner, or the previous owner would be held accountable for the whereabouts of the weapon, and subject to appropriate legal action.

    Three immediate benefits of this new policy would be:

    1) to reduce the number of murders by guns in America; 2) To severely curtail illegal "export" to and import from other countries; 3) The safety of the Mexican border area with the U.S.A. would be the first to benefit by this method, especially if the Mexican government also implemented this annual inspection system. The same goes for Canada and the Canadian-American border. 4) This inspection system, when implemented worldwide, would benefit all.

    Thus, there should be reduced objections to such inspections because Americans may own such weapons, per the U.S. Constitution.

    And the American public would be held responsible for every weapon we manufacture, buy and own.

    There cannot be any more lame excuses that "somehow my gun was stolen" or "I lost it." Ownership safeguards would be more highly utilized.

    Crimes would be more traceable to the current owner with a trail of ownership of every gun.

    This guy is NOT a nut job, he's a comedian.

    1) to reduce the number of murders by guns in America
    2) To severely curtail illegal "export" to and import from other countries.
    3) The safety of the Mexican border area with the U.S.A. would be the first to benefit by this method, especially if the Mexican government also implemented this annual inspection system. The same goes for Canada and the Canadian-American border.
    4) This inspection system, when implemented worldwide, would benefit all.

    Fortunately, most of the comments on this nutjob/comedian/ nitwit's letter to the editor take him to task... sparing me the trouble. I'd rather stick to figuring out the Thanksgiving menu.

    He's got to be a Yankee transplant. There is no way this side of Hades he can be a natural born Virginian, especially in Culpepper.

    It's unfortunate that some parts of VA has increasingly become a breeding ground for liberals who have moved from the north. And being in Richmond for a while now, it's become that way too. Best way is to counteract their views and keep up the pressure in order to continue the fight against more gun control.

    Inbreeding might also be the cause of his insane reasoning. His delusions seem to be more from stupidity than ignorance.

    Have this person visit Canada and see how that worked out for them.
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    Words fail me,
