    Apparently one of the victims in CA was also at the concert in Vegas and survived that massacre. Let that sink in. Trump said he would get bump stocks banned after Vegas, we canít even make the simple decisions, let alone tackle the more difficult ones. Itís a complete joke but thatís our country now.

    I've stopped talking to NRA members about this issue. Like arguing with a brick wall, it's pointless.

    Nothing like crying yet again watching cable news. Getting sick of it.

    Thoughts and prayers. Thatís all we can do. Too many people in charge donít care and too many others are too busy carrying their water to care much either.

    Almost alone, I started advocating ending conceal on this board in 2010...and there will be major gun violence issues until we clean up guns from the streets.

    Only guns in urban areas in homes or trunks of cars. Zero tolerance. Done.

    Criminals certainly agree would you. It would make things much safer and easier for them.

    1. Trump changed the law that prevented some mentally ill people from getting guns. HORRIBLE
    2. The documentation system and gun registry in this country is paper based. Need to fix this.
    3. Background checks are not happening on all sales, AND with the documentation system not being on computers it doesn't really matter. See #2, and agree with the all sales thing
    4. You will not treat guns like cars. A logical approach.

    So, if we can't have logical controls then we can't have guns. If gun owners are going to act like children then they deserve to be treated like children.

    If more guns and loose gun laws made us safer we would be the safest country on earth. Clearly we are not and clearly you are too dense to see the truth staring you right in the face. Your words earlier about wanting a safer country were as empty as the space between your ears.

    He almost has it. Have the right attitude, mentality, and responsibility about guns, then anyone who wants one, can have one. Unfortunately, that is far from today's truth.

    And we will never, ever get there. Look around. Does it look like as a country people are getting more or less responsible? We all watch the same movies. We all play the same video games. Only we have this problem and you only have to be slightly smarter than Drew to figure out why that is. Iím sorry, but Iím out of patience with this crap. Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way. Iím sick and tired of waking up, looking at my phone, and having 6 notifications about another slaughter of our innocent citizens.

    I have a little more hope, but yes, it's only hope. We will destroy ourselves and have to rebuild our society before that happens, I think.

    Yeah because like everyone else, they will be less likely to get their head blown off in a gun accident.

    There are far more non-homicidal gun deaths than homicide gun deaths (and even many of the homicides are committed by those with legally purchased guns). Guns kill 1,300 children every year.

    Fully agree.

    I would like to add, this is NOT saying "Well, can't have that, you're saying 'might as well do nothing, then.'" That would be incorrect.

    If we, as a society, had all the mental/good attitude/responsibility of a good gun owner, then C&C wouldn't matter, because we'd have nothing to worry about. There's the rub.

    These studies have been prevented along with all the sensible gun control. The NRA used to be a gun safety organization. No longer. People who cannot be responsible with their toys need to have them taken away.

    Period.

    It's so weird to see the NRA so balls to the wall hellbent on not giving a sh**. You would think they would want to promote mental health initiatives in the name of gun safety.

    You would think promoting firearms as safe outdoor leisure (trap/target) or for recreational use (hunting) for healthy, responsible Americans would be their mission to increase membership and awareness.

    Not coked-out bleating "(((Their))) comin' fer yer GUNZ!"
