  •  THere are responsible gun owners, and the ones (1+ / 0-)

    I know have no problem with sensible gun regulations:

    1. Federal laws, no more state laws
    2. An assault weapons ban with teeth that addresses all the weapons that can fire dozens of bullets in very few seconds (or the cheap conversion kits to make ones that are not shoot that fast anyway)
    3. Licensing and training
    4. Registration of all firearms

    I have yet to meet a responsible gun owner that is against any of the above, but there are plenty of apologists that are complicit in the daily carnage by aiding and abetting the NRA's absolutist position.

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

      and the right-wing nuts who believe they have an absolute right to own any form of firearm manufactured with no restrictions whatsoever.

      I have been a shooter all my life.  I own a gun that is in no way a "self-defense" weapon. It is a small caliber, long barrel target pistol.

      I am willing to register said gun, have it and my trigger lock inspected, take training, pass tests, and pay for liability insurance. If it some point the cost of owning the gun outweighs my desire to shoot occasionally; I will get rid of the gun.

      If you think I am irresponsible; that is your problem, not mine.
