GUN CONTROL
I come from the UK, and I find the idea of having a gun, except for shooting rabbits or game, a very disturbing one. Fear of crime is often greater than actual crime.

Gun control in the US is going to be very difficult one to accomplish, since there are too many guns "out there" already. Even if the law was tighten, I'm sure there are ways and means to obtain a weapon, if you have enough money and will to get one. Weapons and arms dealing are one of the biggest businesses in the world, and the NRA will protect that interest, as well as the their interpretation of the "right to bare" arms quotation.

It comes down to the mentality of the person that is using the weapon, anything can be used as a weapon from a gun, to a pencil, it is the intention of the person who has it...and frankly how can you assure that everyone have the right kind of mentality to have a weapon?

I find this culture of gun owner ship a learnt behavior, and a heighten sense of fear of crime and thus the need to defend your self against that fear of crime. In some cases their could be a good reason to carry a weapon, if you live in a high crime area, or a remote location, but the capacity of that weapon has be be kept in check.

Re: GUN CONTROL
sorry for the idiot response.

I am a gun owner and shoot for the shear sport of it. I proposed on this site that gun owners allow the sheriff, an elected official, to hold the guns in a safety deposit style locker. When desired the gun owner goes and signs it out. This would keep the guns in a safe place, away from the criminals and madmen.

when the gun is signed out the sheriff can check the owner out. If the intent is suspicious he has the power to refuse to release the weapon.

I would rather do this than lose my guns.. Ideally I would prefer to keep my guns but this is about the best alternative I could think of.

of course I'm a retarded asshole for even suggesting this.

Re: GUN CONTROL
I like to shoot rabbits and game. With my AK. You know why? Because I own me and I'm the only one who can tell me what I can and cannot buy. You brits may enjoy your oppression but I'm not too excited about it. I don't need an excuse to own a gun and I shouldn't need a permit either. If they're produced by humans and I can afford one, I should be able to purchase them--no matter what "they" are. It's called freedom--the reason we left your tyrannical nation in the first place.
