    all gun owners should be encouraged to act responsibly. You will find no disagreement on that with any RKBA member. Nor will you find any one here who will claim that all regulation is infringement. That is a very extreme position that even the NRA does not share. And we're all liberals here, so the NRA is held in the same contempt by us (except for their shooting sports and hunter safety division) as by any one else here.

    We believe that irresponsible people should not have access to guns
    Agreed.
    All gun owners do not share responsibility for gun deaths.
    Thank you.

    Common sense rule are fine, and I am all for them, as long as they reduce irresponsible or criminal use of guns, without infringing on rights. Irresponsible morons, like people who leave loaded guns where kids can get them, or the pinheads who go target shooting in the middle of a drought (Utah) and set the woods aflame, give all gun owners a bad name.

    Effective and reasonable regulation can be done--witness the success of the NICS background check system, which many people are surprised to learn was backed by the NRA. It has prevented more felons and domestic abusers from buying firearms than all the hardware and magazine size restrictions ever tried.

    See? We agree on all sort of things...
