    No.

    Gun and bullet tracking is the solution.

    Followed by total responsibility for the actions of a gun you sold..or own.

    No to bullet tracking and no to gun tracking. That just makes it easier to find out who has guns when it's time to take them away.

    I am responsible for the actions of a gun I sold? Am I also responsible for the actions of a car I sell? People are only responsible for their actions, not the actions of inanimate objects, especially ones they do not own.

    Yeah right and we would wind up with an uninsured gun owners surcharge on our insurance bill.

    I wonder are left wingnuts or insurance companies pushing this?

    In a society that entertains itself with movies with extreme violence, I take the stand that I will never own a weapon. Or see another movie where that is the primary "entertainment." Go on and shoot me, animals. I know where I'm going when I die. Do you?

    Sadly those who choose to "defend" their homes have children, how many of the children killed themselves or their friends accidentally? Was it really worth it, compared to the crime rate in your area?

    How many children were so miserable they found it so easy to take their own lives?

    Legislating responsibility is no easy matter, I realize. And even if those who are responsible outnumber the ones who are irresponsible, do you really think the answer is to open the doors to every single person?

    I do not want to live in a society where everyone is free to carry a concealed weapon without some guarantee that person has some responsibility. And having insurance is not enough.

    Move to the UK, they are banning chef's knives and requiring ID to purchase pizza cutters, you should feel very comfortable.

    Funny thing though, gun violence is going up there.

    Less then a thousand deaths a year to accidents and suicides? Please if someone is going to actually kill themselves they do not need a gun.

    You want to remove my right to a firearm, you have 2 choices.... Pass an amendment and fight the ensuing civil war or pass a law and fight the ensuing civil war. By the way? Come to my door to seize my weapons and a couple people will die. I am sure I will be one of them but it is not a right I will surrender.
