    then should any item which is designed solely to kill be banned or should any item specifically designed to kill humans be banned?

      Requiring licensing and training to drive cars that are not designed solely to kill while loosening gun regs is stupid.

      •  I have no problem with regulation of guns (5+ / 0-)

        as they are currently regulated albeit mayhap not sufficiently but there are some who would welcome an outright ban.

        I would suggest in any such discussion, that all parties be familiar with the class of arms being discussed and also be familiar with current laws, as I have seen people outraged that ordinary people can mail guns to each other (they really can't do that legally) and other misconceptions

        •  They can, however, meet in a parking lot, exchange (0+ / 0-)

          cash/gun and go about their day. No background check or anything.

          •  except in online exchanges the seller (0+ / 0-)

            and buyer are separated by several states and an interstate transfer of arms is another kettle of fish.  Much easier to buy locally from your local Penny Saver
