Immediate ban on all guns.
Guns only for military/police.
Bolt/pump/lever action ok, no semi-autos.
Gun laws are fine as they currently stand.
Select-fire weapons should be allowed.
You can have them when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.
I want a tank.
Interesting poll results, most here on this site want no change or feel that we should be allowed to own whatever gun we can afford.
But the politicians will change the law because it is what they want. The rarely do what they are supposed to do and represent the people that voted them in office.
Bunch of crooks if you ask me.
Criminals will find a way around the system to get guns anyway, The background checks just penalizes the legal gun owners.
Obviously, gun control is as important to public safety as black backpack control and pressure cooker control. The question remains; how do we get people with ill-intent to turn over their guns, backpacks and pressure cookers?
From the 2nd link, "The Nation's top problems": Economy (24%), unemployment (18%), dissatisfaction with government (16%), budget/debt (11%), healthcare (6%), immigration (4%) and education (4%) = 83%
For each person who thinks guns are the nation's top problem, over 20 believe government related issues are the nation's top problem.

A lot of resistance to any new gun laws is that a substantial portion of Americans do not trust the government to not do exactly the opposite of what they promise.
No one advocating more gun control measures has tackled the question of how they're going to magically get criminals to obey any new laws.
http://www.examiner.com/article/nra-...tion-necessaryAccording to a short video produced by the NRA, a Justice Department memo says that an assault weapon ban would not be effective without mandatory gun confiscation and that universal background checks would only work with federal gun registration, Jim Hoft reported at the Gateway Pundit on Monday, citing a blog post at Guns Saves Lives.
Democrats in at least two states -- Missouri and Minnesota -- have already proposed legislation that if passed into law, would require law-abiding gun owners to surrender rifles, shotguns and pistols deemed to be "assault weapons." A proposal being considered in Washington State would require local sheriffs to inspect the homes of those with "assault weapons" to ensure they are secure.
“Confiscation could be an option…mandatory sale to the state could be an option,” said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
"If I could have banned them all – ‘Mr. and Mrs. America turn in your guns’ – I would have," Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Ca) said in 1995.
A post at the Geeky Liberal cites, among others, a post at the liberal Daily Kos calling for all guns to be taken from the civilian population.
"The only way we can truly be safe and prevent further gun violence is to ban civilian ownership of all guns. That means everything. No pistols, no revolvers, no semiautomatic or automatic rifles. No bolt action. No breaking actions or falling blocks. Nothing. This is the only thing that we can possibly do to keep our children safe from both mass murder and common street violence," the Daily Kos said in a post outlining a step-by-step process for stripping Americans of their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
A Jan. 4 document by Greg Ridgeway, Ph.D., Deputy Director of the National Institute of Justice, admitted that "gun buybacks are ineffective as generally implemented," unless they are "massive and coupled with a ban."
According to Dr. Ridgeway, these buybacks are ineffective because replacements can be easily procured, the buybacks are too small in scope and many of the weapons being turned in would probably never be used in a crime.
"Unless these three points are overcome," he wrote, "a gun buyback cannot be effective."
Oh don't think for a second that some of these ****ers on Capitol Hill don't want your guns, all of them, not just a few. I'm sorry if guns are outlawed then I become an outlaw.
