We have about as many limits on guns as people like me find tolerable. You have to be specially licensed to sell guns commercially. You have to pass a background check to buy a gun from a commercial dealer. You have to go through a special process to own a suppressor, short-barreled shotgun, short-barreled rifle or exotic firearm. In many states, you have to be specially licensed to carry a loaded, concealed handgun out in public.
I was at the FREEDOM NOW CONFERENCE this weekend and one of the speakers said that GUN VIOLENCE is a made up word. and that HUMAN VIOLENCE is the proper term to use. and that is because a GUN IS JUST A TOOL USED BY A HUMAN TO CAUSE THE VIOLENCE. So the term HUMAN VIOLENCE would be a BETTER TERM.
Since none of the common sense gun control efforts are neither common nor make sense, I have trouble with many of the restrictions. As said under another thread, the forest is eliminated one tree at a time.
