Guns that are sent thru the US Mail must be unloaded.
Persons convicted of a crime of violence will have their gun rights SUSPENDED for a period of time equal to their prison "time-served"
Persons adjudged a danger to themselves or other due to mental illness will have their gun rights SUSPENDED until such time as a panel of physicians finds they are no longer mentally ill.
Mayor Bloomberg will be required to walk thru New York City once a week in areas showing the highest number of crimes that week- without his bodyguards.
yes C3, those are reasonable and i agree. the restrictions you quoted are just common sense and those just seem to elude those liberal gun haters and politicians.
there are certain people who should never own firearms, ever. but i think part of our system and society has failed and gun owning LAC's end being judged and punished by the actions of a few deranged idiots who commit a crime with a firearm. some of these liberals blame gun owners and those who belong to the NRA for the actions of the demented individual who commited the horrific CT school shooting , as if we are just like him, because we own firearms because we have that right.
my father had a saying he told me many years ago when we were discussing gun control, that they make new gun control laws because the current ones are ineffective and they can't enforce them upon the criminals in the first place, so they make more new ones, so they will have some more that are ineffective and just penalize those who abide by the law in the first place.
