I am 100% in support of more stringent background checks for gun ownership. I am also 100% for mandatory gun training and safety training for gun ownership.
As previously said, I think that those convicted of certain violent crimes should lose their right to gun ownership...even though this is a slipperly slope.
The only aspect of the gun control legislation that I am not in support of is the banning of gun ownership (even semi auto assault rifles) from law abiding citizens.
I don't agree with you too often Hatter, but hats off to you
In all seriousness, sometimes I wonder if there is more common ground on some issues (like this one) than what most people realize because the rest of the world is just like the Huddle: way too happy to argue semantics and minor details rather than come together to push politicians.
that, and there's a giant fuging lobby bending over backwards for the firearms industry (and yes I realize that's not unique to the firearms industry, nobody needs to try to point that out )
