    So the solution is simple: let's require gun licensing. Gun owners should have to take an exam to get a gun license. Second, they should have to purchase liability insurance on every gun they own. Third, every gun should have to be registered with an annual fee.
    Here, here, and right on!

    The only point you missed is this notion that some gun supporters believe that teachers and others should be armed -- let's debunk that canard as soon as possible! How would law enforcement know who the shooter was? What about ricochets during a gun fight? What if the shooter got hold of the extra gun? What if the bystander/hero/vigilante shot another innocent bystander, even by accident?

    The civil rights, gay rights and women's movements, designed to allow others to reach for power previously grasped only by white men, have made a real difference, and the outlines of 21st century America have emerged. -- Paul West of LA Times

    •  The answer to guns is not to bring in more guns. (1+ / 0-)

      It's to reduce how many guns are in the population.

      I saw a debunking of it somewhere - it may have been here, on Kos - and if I find it I'll add it to the diary.
