With Respect; We have sufficient gun registration laws and there is already a three (3) day wait for purchasing a pistol. There is also an existing ban on assault type automatic weapons. The key here is that all "legal" gun purchases follow that rule. The media will put a lot of attention on certain gun crimes to evoke an emotional response from the viewers to push certain political views. If the problem is gun shows, it is easy to require gun registrations and that the dealers have a federal firearms license.
I am a hunter and a conservationists. I attend a number of banquets every year that raise funds for Ducks Unlimited, and National Wild Turkey Federation. At those banquets guns are auctioned or raffled off. No guns leave the premises without the federal check and if there are pistols they go back to the dealer for the mandatory wait period and advanced security checks. It is not the legal gun owner that is the problem. If you want to make an immediate change in gun crimes, do what other countries have done. Immediate death penalty for any crime committed with a firearm that results in the death of a victim. Let's start focusing on the victims rights and toss out the "rights" of the criminal.
Understand this please. In Wisconsin, today, yesterday, and over the past 100 years, over 600,000 gun owners DID NOT COMMIT A CRIME. The numbers of legal gun owners who did not commit a crime is larger in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota.
The real crimes are committed by Congressional members, which ever party they belong to, that set themselves up as above the laws they pass for the rest of us. Gun control is a smoke screen to distract you from the real issues. Your social Security is at risk because the liberals allow folks that did not contribute to the system tap into it. How hard is it to understand the term "Illegal" in the phrase "Illegal Immigrant". If you want Social Security to get fixed, make Congress put themselves into it as well as all federal and USPS employees so we are all in the same system
