I have no doubt that everyone here thinks that banning guns or certain guns won't solve out current issues with all these people getting shot. But part of me says SOMETHING should b done. There is an article on Newser this morning that says we should have a national registry on guns AND ammo. No ban or restrictions on anything we can currently have. I say this is a very slippery slope to the govt. banning and/or collecting any and all guns & ammo. How about something in between? I never hear anyone talk about the crazy people. When I buy a gun, there is nothing in the form, or on the background check about whether I'm crazy, been institutionalized, have a mental health background issue, or anything. (This is to the best of my knowledge.) Why? Would that be so hard to add that in to the paperwork and BG check? That would be basically the same as them checking you for felonies; if you're not supposed to have one anyway, oh well......tough. That way, the rest of us with no issues would not have our privacy infringed upon. This is actually the basis, (I think), of my wife's anti-gun stance. Someone she knew with some apparent mental issues legally bought a gun and killed herself. Now, this would probably not solve the problem, or weed out every mentally unstable person, but it might be a good start.
