    federal trafficking legislation and enforcement.

    It is not like the manufacturers and
    dealers are unknown to everyone.
    These are the sources, and I am sure
    they realize that the focus will soon be
    directly on their 'business' models and practices.

    How difficult would it be to reverse the firearms
    industries immunity from torts and prosecutions?
    Or perhaps some states could make the manufacturers
    carry mandatory liability insurance for every individual sale?

    I wonder if the Dkos RKBA would be welcome at netroots?
    Allowed to have a booth? That could make for some
    interesting and provocative discussions. Doesn't our
    true opposition usually schedule a shadow
    boxing match around the same time and vicinity?

    What if they put on a gun show and the fail hit the fan?

    What part of "well regulated" is so hard to grasp?

    My Unicornitopian aspect hopes for some
    dark matter energy field personal defense
    that renders the entire debate moot, and soon.

    Until then, some modest legislation will have to do.
    I could tolerate a tiered license structure for the various
    capacity grades and such. The veterans speaking out
    in favor of background checks should also support
    mandatory proficiency testing and safety training also.

    Might be a good jobs program for recently returned veterans.
    If anyone has earned the right to screen fellow citizens
    for a potential risk of harming the rest of us, it is them.

    I haven't yet decided whether to view the fact that the criminal
    and conspiratorial minded would not cooperate in such areas
    as a positive, or negative, on the whole. Self selection
    might work to our species favor in more than one way.

    Your work here on this and other
    issues has been a true inspiration
    in its compassionate and reasoned humanity,
    considering your proximity to recent events.

    Thank you for all of your many efforts.
