I support banning your stupid ass from the internet. Your left mouse button should be connected to an electrical substation and engineered to give you a heavy shock every time you use it.

There is only one rational human response to the question of whether you should freely sell weapons of mass destruction to aspiring rapists and terrorists, and yours is MOST DEFINITELY not it.

What gun laws or gun law enforcement measures would you support?

Hello A:

When a firearm changes hands, the NEW owner should be required to go through a comprehensive background check.

Requiring purchasers of NEW guns to go through one, but not purchasers of USED guns, i.e. private sales, makes NO SENSE. If we wanna actually know WHO has a gun, then why go through the motions PRETENDING that's what we're doing??

I’m mostly on board, but I see room for exceptions and concerns with enforcement:

- An immediate family member with a known clean history should not be required to get a background check.

- Background checks should be required to obtain a “proof of background check” certificate, which would be necessary for a private sale. The certificate would need to be current within a year.

- My concern with enforcement is that sales by private people in private residence (not at gun shows) cannot be tracked at all. Any means to track such activity would be a step too far in my opinion, leaving such a requirement toothless in the vast majority of illegal gun sales.

Hello A:

Clean, according to who? It's like enforcing a speed limit but not for Fords.. Because some people won't obey a law is NOT a reason to NOT pass one..

What is the PURPOSE of requiring someone - anyone to go through a background check??? To make the libs happy.. To give the government something to do??? DUDE!

If it's to make SURE that people who BUY guns aren't fucked up, then requiring only SOME of them to go through a check is STUPID, STUPID, STUPID..

Ahahahaha!

Side: Right

No bazookas.

No missile launchers.

No live grenades.

No tanks

Etc.

People with serious mental incapacity prohibited from getting a gun. Examples- Alzheimers, Parkinsons, mental retardation

We already have background checks, and I support its basic premise.

I support teaching kids in schools basic gun safety similar to a deer hunting course. No hands on involved. Only safety concepts.

Guns in the hands of criminals occurs because someone puts them there. How would you go about targeting the sale or transfer of guns to criminals?

If the person's background check comes back negatively, and you sell the gun, you get a nice, big, fat fine. If you do it enough, you get stripped of your license to sell firearms.

Side: Left

I support some restrictions like no mental patients, illegal immigrants, or felons, but other than that, I affirm and support gun rights.

Side: Right

I support common sense measures agreed upon by common sense people. The words common sense and the Left go together like oil & water.

If the real reasons for more gun control legislation is to save lives, why doesn't the Left push for back ground checks in public places that sell alcohol to possible repeat DWI offenders?

I don't want this, but if the goal is to save lives with all this anti Gun rhetoric, Democrats should be over joyed to save many thousands more lives by having background checks on people before buying alcohol in public places.

Do you have any idea how many times repeat DWI drivers continue to drink and drive? They drive even when their licenses are revoked!

The only way to prevent this is to do a background check before they buy that weapon of death.....ALCOHOL!

Wait, what you say? You say you don't want to be inconvenienced by background checks when buying alcohol? You say you are a law abiding citizen who would never drink and drive?

You say you don't want to pay more for alcohol to pay for those background checks for past DWI drivers?

I THOUGHT YOUR GOAL WAS TO SAVE LIVES? You expect law abiding citizens to pay more and put up with all the inconvenience from your anti gun legislation, but when it comes to your alcohol...... HANDS OFF?

A drunk driver behind the wheels of a car happens millions of times more often than some lunatic with a gun! The odds of you or your loved one being killed by a drunk driver is far higher than the odds of being shot at a concert or Church.

The Left could not care less about saving lives. Their final goal is to take our guns.

They always spew ludicrous reasoning why only guns should be singled out to save lives. A police state is just fine as long as it only controls one particular weapon of death..... the gun.

You say we already have alcohol restrictions? Yes, and we already have gun restrictions. You can't buy a gun under age, the same as alcohol. We can't shoot people, you can't hunt near public places and you can not drink and drive. BUT PEOPLE STILL DO IT!

IT'S NOT THE WEAPON OF CHOICE, BUT THE PERSON BEHIND THAT WEAPON. Use the brain God gave you and start addressing why people grow up to be criminals, or become irresponsible drinkers who have no problem drinking and driving.

Start addressing the core problem instead of their weapon of choice.

Demonstrating the level of concern had by Democrats for public alcohol consumption is not eh same as presenting a gun law or law enforcement measure that you would support.

Common sense laws agreed upon by common sense people is fine, but what is an example?

Common sense laws are already on the books, and for any NEW laws pushed by the anti Gun Left, there would have to be common sense agreement from both sides.

I am fine with laws that prevent citizens from getting large military weapons that could never be used for hunting, target shooting or home protection.
