  •  Just keep repeating the mantra "guns don't kill (8+ / 0-)

    people ..."  It is always the holy line among the NRAvangelists and their sympathizers.  It must be one of the holy prayers that they make you guys repeat the most when you have impure thoughts and think about regulations.

    This problem is a systemic problem because of proliferation and it will take years to clean up after we get started.  How can we identify the "NON-responsible gun owners" if we don't even know who the responsible ones are?  Insurance would be a great way of holding those that are irresponsible accountable for any damage done as it would cost those that are irresponsible more than others. The only long-term solution is to to have federal regulations/standards for required safety training, licensing, registration and complete criminal background checks of EVERY single firearm purchase/transfer.  A ban on firearms that shoot too many rounds way too fast would be great, but that will only apply to some of the firearms and the manufacturers/distributors will soon enough find ways to beat the system.

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