  •  I tend to feel like that more about pistols (0+ / 0-)

    People do hunt, and I've got no real 'beef' with regular old hunting rifles.  And I understand how people who are frightened about home invasions might want to keep a pistol at home.  

    But I really don't like people simply carrying them around in public, and would like to eventually see the US move to a system where you can only carry firearms inside city limits outside of your home if they're in bulky, brightly coloured gun safes with RFID tags that take 15 minutes or so to open even after you decide to get into them, with maybe a radio signal being broadcast whenever such a case was opened, such that police would be notified if someone started to open a case in an unapproved location, giving them 15 minutes to use the locator tag to track down the case.

    That way you could still own your weapon, still move it between properties you own, and still go hunting out in the country, or use target ranges.
