    Next, each firearm has a unique serial number, just like a VIN, so each weapon will need to be registered with the state you reside in (AND currently have a FOID card in). Each guns registration is good for one year, and must be displayed on the firearm. (Just like a license plate renewal sticker).

    DUI rules apply to firearm use. You will be arrested for using your firearm with a BAC >0.08.

    Also, you can have your FOID card revoked for medical reasons, just like a driver's license. (This one will help get Drew on board my proposal.)

    Still with me Flaggy? This is a great idea! Glad you helped co-author this.
    So it's no longer a right but a privilege? Fuggetaboutit. National gun registries happen in every single oppressive regime. They get taken out. Then when they come after you, there's no one left to defend you.

    Take your registry to Venezuela or North Korea where it belongs.

    Mass murderers elect to kill the masses.

    Heart attacks, Cancer and car accidents are chance.

    So yes, there is quite a difference and no, making a big deal out of 50 people gunned down (and hundreds more injured) in public with a weapon that no private citizen should have a right to own is not even a slight overreaction.
    As we've seen in Europe, there is only so much we can do. Life has to go on. The three things I mentioned carry significantly greater risk for the average person than terrorism.

    To humor you, what exactly do you propose we do to prevent something like this from happening again?

    Those are the laws in Mass, still a lot of people getting shot. If states want to do it, have at it. I don't think that legislation is appropriate at the federal level though. And what do you do when people run afoul of those laws? Do you want a lot more people in jail?

    Now hold up. I never said that you couldn't own one without going through the loops, just *using* one. Lots of people own classic cars that they never register or drive. Obviously people buy and sell classic cars that never get registered. Same could still take place with guns.

    I'm not changing anything other than treating guns and cars alike.

    Anything beyond a hunting rifle or shotgun should be illegal for citizens to possess.

    Yes, this ****ball could have killed some people with a rifle, but not 50.

    None of this matters. If it didn't matter when a class full of kindergarteners got their heads ventilated by a ****** with a gun, it won't matter now. You literally cannot mass murder enough people to overcome the folks who get massive boners from their guns.

    Did I hear right this morning that he had a fully automatic rifle? Or was that just misinformation, or premature speculation?
    Having a clear conscience just means you have a bad memory or you had a boring weekend.

    That's what I heard and based on how many round he got off it had to be.

    I've read this to. I'd be very surprised if it was true. It takes a lot of effort and money to get one.

    Edit: there are accessories you can buy that will make semi-autos close to full auto, might be something like that.

    He almost had to have, don't you think?

    That many rounds, that quickly.

    Of course misinformation is the norm with these things early on.

    That's what they said this early AM, and I don't know too many people who could continually repeatedly pull a trigger as fast as the video clips that were being shown on NBC this AM.

    I heard the sound from a video. Whatever was used was on full automatic, be it a machine gun or an automatic rifle.

    And as always... if our government wants us dead, and knows where we are, there's nothing your AR-15 is gonna do to protect you from the drone strike.

    You won't even hear it coming.

    There are clips online of the shooting as it happened. It is very clearly automatic from the audio.

    I will never understand why this is so difficult for certain people to grasp.

    Please stop with the bad information. The US swamps Europe in mass murders in addition to general gun deaths. The US has 1/3 of the entire world's mass murders - and that includes lawless countries.

    http://www.cnn.com/2015/08/27/health...ngs/index.html

    - In the United States, people have a greater chance of dying in mass shootings if they're at work or at school. Overseas, these incidents typically happen near military installations.

    - In more than half the American cases, the shooter had more than one firearm. In global incidents, the shooter typically had only one gun.
