“MY” gun control law ………….. ver 2.0

my concept is SIMPLY based on seeing a similarity between cars & guns.

If you want to argue that we don’t have a constitutional right to own a car –
and we have a right to bear arms, frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.
You do not have a legal right to bear a tank or bazooka or automatic machine gun.

Consider these two cases:

  1. you leave your locked car parked on the street – some one steals it, hot wires it and uses it to murder someone – are YOU legally responsible ?
  2. you leave your unlocked car parked on the street – with keys in the ignition – some one steals it, and uses it to murder someone – are YOU legally responsible for your negligence?

Here is my proposal for a NATIONAL gun law:

All procedure fees will be priced to be very profitable
All present guns and owners will be covered by these laws
.......................................................and - no - this plan will not SOLVE all gun problems

►1► all gun owners must be licensed and tested with all guns that they own and pass a written test

if you own a motor cycle, a dump truck, and a car – you are tested in each
written gun test - to guarantee the owner's understanding of gun laws being forced to know the law - via the test - means the police know who you are - and you may be less likely to commit a crime

►2► every year, you must prove that you have gun liability insurance & be background checked and prove that your gun is properly locked when not used .

insurance should be at least as high as car insurance [ I would like $1,000,000 ]
you must prove your car insurance
annual back ground check to verify your suitability to own guns
every gun must be locked in a gun case or have a trigger lock

►3► as the owner of a gun, you are legally responsible for what is done with it.

the owner will be much less likely to leave a gun accessible to a family member or thief

►4► every gun must be registered and tested - and sample fired bullet stored

knowing that your gun & its bullets are so easily traced will make you think before using it

if we legalize drugs, we will clear out jail cells to fill with gun law breakers
and free up police "time" for real crime investigation

penalties and fees must be very high in money & jail time – especially after the first offense

no citizens ( except dealers & real collectors ) need more than a small number of guns

fees should be higher for more guns.

Gun fees should be high enough to create a very substantial gun buy-back program

The nra fighting against this - will be balanced by the insurance companies fighting for it

But the nra may be in favor of this when the gun companies understand that a gun owner can get paid to turn in their gun and they will be able to buy a new gun – with an INTEGRATED lock .

I am fundamentally NOT opposed to confiscation, but we WILL get higher compliance and lower opposition to high fees & buyback. We need to take a position of reducing guns like assault weapons such as semi-automatic rifles – rather than punishing a gun nut who spent $10,000 on an armory.

........................................................what do you think ? ........................................................what can we do - that CAN be done ?

nra spent $6,000,000.00 for Rs
nra spent $11,000,000.00 against Ds
but we at OWS know better
there is no difference between the D & R

These post's/threads are a distraction. There is no meaningful change that can be made by changing gun laws - the guns are out in the public - stopping the manufacture and sale of high ammunition capacity clips and semi-auto weapons will keep the numbers down ( in legal hands anyway ). But gun laws/rights will not stop mass murderers. Healing societies ills will reduce the number of murders - but will not do a thing to cure a mass murderers intents/reasoning/atrocities.

65% of America's guns are owned by 20%
roughly, 60,000,000 own 195,000,000 guns
3+ guns each
do the math
charge $500 to license each one owned
fine $20,000 for having an illegal gun
10 years in jail for using an illegal gun
use the money to buy back guns

My gun law - gun safe. Other that one personal protection weapon, keep ammo separate. Teach your children about risks associated with gun use. Oh, by the way, gun insurance and safety courses should be a multibillion dollar industry. thanks, bensdad, for opening up another corporate opportunity.

how about - requiring by law - that every shooting range be required to inspect and or keep a copy of every customer's license & registrations

jack kingston (r) just suggested mental health solutions .
great idea-
no one is allowed to own a gun until they have had at least 10 years of therapy

please understand - everything these gun nuts advocates is a diversion & delay

The states with the most home gun deaths seem to be in the south
I heard a statistic ( sounds right but I don't know ) >
a woman with a gun at home is 15 times more likely to be a victim of gun violence
as was the first victim of this terror

I support these proposals. We should also create a large number of gun inspectors to accomplish this. Paid for by fees you discussed, & taxes on gun industry.

There must be something done regarding improving mental health care, and observation.
