Over the years the NRA and the politicians who drool when they try to think, have passed an entire series of very irrational laws concerning firearms. Publicized, a large majority of the public would support their repeal. Five of them were noted today by ProPublica on

More below the orange schematic of the secret Liberal handshake....

A very brief search came up with a few more; you may know of one. Frankly, the thousands and thousands of web pages that I've saved have a lot of that stuff, but for a few years I had no data organization, and what I have now I implemented only gradually. I've read about the irrational laws but can't call them up.

I recall that a good number of the bills that the NRA got their politicians to pass concerned restricting information so no one had data with which to criticize gun laws.
such as this recent one:
 Health roundup: Gun data limited by NRA-backed laws

A second group of laws concerns financial (and moral) immunity for gun manufacturers and sellers.

a third group promotes the proliferation of guns in inappropriate places.  and      and

It seems to me that making a package of the most dangerous and irrational laws and restrictions would be a way to get some of these things corrected.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
