Car Accidents and Gun Accidents (via azspot)
This is so stupid I can’t even… Seriously, all people who have never fired a gun before… Go to your local shooting range, rent a handgun, and fire it a few times. That will be lesson one. If you have half a brain cell and the capacity for critical thinking, it will become apparent why most of your knee jerk reactions to gun regulation won’t work at all.
Think about how that insurance would actually work? think about how few deaths are caused by gun “malfunction”, think about how the equivalent of a seatbelt or airbag for a gun is a bulletproof vest and a helmet for the shooter.
Think about how the licensing cost you are talking about only serves to make guns unobtainable (legally) for low income people.
And you know the title thing would work if the gun was a car. Because cars are big and noticeable, you can’t really conceal one on your person. So people notice if it doesn’t have a license, but a gun? It has to be out for you to check. And if it’s out, business is already going down most likely.
A counter for how many times it has been fire wont matter AFTER you have mowed down a bunch of people with it. (Also people go to gun ranges and fire guns for fun, so it’s useless.)
And as for that federal agency of yours, I suppose the NRA could just move into the white house then, because there are no greater experts on gun education, gun safety, and gun regulations and how they interact with the law.
The key to operate the gun is the ONLY good suggestion, (for preventing accidents not murders, because a murderer will probably figure a way around that. Because you know, intent to kill and all that.)
I agree, guns should be regulated, but these stupid suggestions aren’t helping anyone.
