"Tighten Background Checks" Excellent idea except why investigate law abiding citizens. I insist our governments investigate criminal's background every time they buy/swap/steal a gun. Then you would know where the illegal guns are and the criminals. Then round up all those bad gun and their owners. No need to harass innocent citizens.
Unenforceable you say? So is the pipe dream you can stop gun violence by restricting the rights of law abiding citizens. I know what you say next: but if it saves the life of just one child! So would stop selling hard candy that doesn't have a hole in it like 'Life Savers' prevent choking deaths. Get real! Guns provide a legitimate service in our crime ridden country.
Face it : Evil exists in the minds of men (and women). Evil force must be met with superior force to have safety and peace. But you answer: that is what the police are hired for. Wrong! The courts have upheld the position that the police have no responsibility to protect you.
Call 911 and wait......they will come.......draw a chalk line around your body......and make reports.

Your orgs. are largely myopic extremists who will stop at nothing less than total gun confiscation while doing nothing to arrest the real disease of inner-city minority drug gangs murdering each other over drugs and territories. The real sane patriots in this war are orgs. like: NRA, GOA, NAGR, JPFO and many state orgs. dedicated to safety, training, hunting, target shooting and most importantly preservation of our law abiding citizens rights to life, liberty and happiness while maintaining all our rights and not the least of these is THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS and to ensure our STATE MILITIAS are regulated and well supplied to come to the defense of our states.
@viper41 You're absolutely correct. And since the lefties don't have a workable solutions to the real criminal gun problems we patriotic constitutional conservatives have to step up our energies and support the most active 2nd A. organizations who will assist us in electing responsible citizens who will restore law and order within the limits of our Constitution. National orgs. very active in this are: NRA, GOA, JFPFO.
Become active in local and state politics. Dare I say 'community organize.' We have to beat these socialists at their own tactics. Hold our current representatives feet to the fire to insist the DOJ, IRS, BTAFE and all the other depts. be held accountable to We the People. Needless to say the Congress must investigate, impeach, and insist that the President be charged for his criminal acts. At least force him from office and let the bumbling fool Biden serve out his term.
Not just the 'mental issues' on a no sell list. Their goal is though the acquisition of medical records to use it to select anyone who has ever been prescribed a RX only medication be put on a no sale list. It is a back door to eliminate legal gun sales in America.
Banning gun sales/ownership is the path to Central Control of citizens within Utopia. The problem: there will still be evil and criminals with weapons.
And ........a nation of defenseless victims.
This is not a valid argument for handgun registration. Just one sale done wrong. I wouldn't sell/buy anything unless I considered the legality of the item and the buyer/seller. Thieves are everywhere.
This is a single instance of private sale "loop hole" so many rave about. On the scale of things an extremely small failure. And for all the fretting about Armslist online sales: very few guns are sold there going around any background checks.
If you were really so concerned about criminal gun use you would insist your elected officials "racial profile" criminals in the inner-city ghettos and seize their weapons.
Any form of registration gives Big Govt. CONTROL!
@TCrawford @runbot "Nevada consistently rates in the top ten for gun violence"
That's not surprising at all when you understand the the state is owned by the casino/drug Mob and their bought and paid for politicians. Las Vegas and Reno residents are East and West coast refugees who imported their extreme leftest politics and drug habits. Added to that is a large indigent/drug addict/prostitute population. The rural folks are individuals who want to be left alone and don't get involved.
It's no wonder Nevada re-lects a detestable politician like Sen. Reid. That the Dem Party would support such a terrible man speaks volumes for the current Democrat Party. Shame, Shame on you! When the honest votes are actually counted the Dems will be destroyed forever.

@verlonp ID and make a bill of sale is good. No need to give the gun grabbers an inch more regulation.
It's another attempt at CONTROL of law abiding citizens. If the Feds. can make straw purchases of large quantities of guns with the intent to distribute them to drug cartels and not be charged and convicted of crimes (except the licensed dealers who were enticed to sell), then obviously there is no legit attempt to solve serious crimes committed with guns.
@runbot Ah yes, the Grand Delusion: Pass a law so criminals won't break the law?
The Truth: Laws CONTROL the law abiding citizen!
Consider seeing a therapist if you voted for anyone who proposes such foolish laws.
I leave you with some wise quotes:
"Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that!"- George Carlin
So sorry to have to correct your info but you are among so many writer with outdated/misleading data. Extremely small percentage of firearms a bought at gun show, from retail, online or from legal transactions between private citizens who are lawfully selling them are ever involved in criminal acts unless they have been stolen from them. Most all criminal purchases/trades are between criminals who would never submit to any background checks. To be more specific: drug peddlers, addicts, criminal street gangs and the like. And let's be honest; the majority of the folks are black/hispanic inner-city gangsters who are a product of progressive democrat programs resulting in a lower dependent class of parents producing essentially parentless youths with no vision of anything other than a short life of drugs and crime.
Putting any blame on the NRA and legal gun owners will get you no sympathy from the majority of legal citizens or progress on your campaign against gun violence.
I'm only getting 25% of the pre-upgrade battery life. Verizon should fix or restore prev version to phone or replace my phone. I paid $150 more for a MAXX to get the battery life and now it won't even last 8hr.

15+ sec lag after closing app & big battery drain on RAZR MAXX. Thinking about rooting & restoring gingerbread....this was an upgrade?
