    That's their STATED main function. In practice, it is probably 3rd.

    Probably the only thing on the list that wouldn't be controversial with the mainstream.

    A particular Gopher fan on this site, however, he has said things like that.
    That Gopher fan is one of the few people I blocked...mainly because everything he posts is ridiculous nonsense no matter the subject.

    Guns need to be more expensive, smart, and built in ways that don't allow easy modification. That will never happen with the NRA. As everything else has technologically advanced guns really haven't for the most part. Just on the margins.
    I have said it a dozen times...Chris Rock's idea is the best make the bullets super expensive. You wont want to fire off 100 of them if each bullet costs $100.

    I agree making ammo super-expensive is not an ideal solution. Though it would be pretty awesome if we could slap a 5-10% tax on every sale of cartridges/shells (and the raw materials to make them), and put all the money it raised into funding social programs that aim to reduce gun violence. Good luck getting that passed, though.

    Or you could use it to help pay for the nearly $3b spent annually on hospital bills caused by gunshots. Something tells me the Venn diagram of people who think they don't need insurance and people who accidentally shoot themselves is a single circle.

    Basically, it's people who romanticize 19th century Gilded Age libertarianism/"rugged Western man living off the land" type of crap. You know what else we didn't have back then? Flush toilets and television; you sure to want to go back?

    I could live with a 10% tax on ammo. Keep in mind it would be a regressive tax.

    That’s debatable. The gun nuts I know that do the most shooting are wealthy people. A single box of 30-06 ammo lasts me 2 years. Although when I picture Leroy M. Redneck out on the weekend with his AR, his only larger expenses than ammo are probably beer and gas. So it’s debatable.

    Re: Days Since Last Shooting II

    The NRA/congressional push to ban bump stocks gives me the creeps a little bit. Not because it shouldn’t be done but because while they’re all slapping each other on the back about solving murder, we’re only addressing the most marginal of symptoms of a sick society in that particular accessory. It’s barely a start.

    That would be a pretty crappy thing for someone to say.
