proposal- we remove all semi automatic guns from the public for 10 years, we store them safely for you. in ten years we evaluate the situation. if there are less mass shootings, we destroy the semi-automatics, enact permanent laws and compensate owners. if there is no decrease in mass shootings in those 10 years, we give you back your weapons. if you are caught holding back weapons you will lose all your guns and your right to own them for 10 years, you will be given 6 months jail time for each assault rifle you held back. you can buy a bow and arrow and learn to hunt. if you sell an assault rifle that is used in a crime you will get a 5 year prison sentence and lose your right to own guns ever again. that seems a rational proposal. guns are everywhere because gun owners have not taken responsibility for the guns they have purchased and now those guns have ended up in the hands of criminals. we do not have a large import of illegal guns in our nation...illegal guns were once legal. personal responsibility is making sure any gun you purchased will not one day end up in the hands of criminals or those with homicidal or suicidal intentions or in the hands of kids who we have dying from accidental shootings with too much regularity. the experiment of responsible ownership has already shown some major signs of failing. perhaps not in a case by case basis, but in the big picture...yes. rational discussion welcome. irrational rants or name calling will be deleted. there is not defense for the loss of these lives..it's time to stop, it's beyond time to stop.
