  • after 72-hour waiting period, require prospective gun buyers find a licensed firearm dealer located at least 120 miles from their home to purchase their gun
  • after gun purchase, new gun owner must watch a 30-minute video in the presence of the firearm dealer that details fatal gun injuries and review information about alternatives to purchasing a firearm.

Oh. Wait a minute. Sorry. Got this confused with the kinds of the hoops women have to jump through to get an abortion. My bad.
Yep, your bad..
But when they have an abortion they are killing something. ANd the emotional pain is quite a bit for some women once completed.. They need to be very aware of the action they are taking.
Guns are a part of many peoples lives growing up. From the first BB gun to their first hunting experience. They are taught from an early age to appreciate and respect the gun and its uses, as it is a tool. Kinda like you should teach your sons/daughters to use contraception or abstain so you wont need an abortion.

And just because guns scare you, that isnt reason to make them all pink and shoot cotton balls.
1) I hardly doubt that neko mimi is "scared" of guns.

2) You missed her point. You ask people to discuss, without emotion, a topic by using emotion. "Like" is an emotion.

3) In your response discussing what you meant by "not using emotion", you used emotion: "cause it's awesome".

Emotionally driven laws arent the way laws should be written. Liking a law, versus agreeing to sound principals are two different things. Our laws arent likable. They are a compromise.. Nothing to like about that. Most are infringements.
Yes,, I was being sarcastic. But not emotionally driven.

Its in relation to the Main Topic. Its a given. I was pointing out something to you..Its a right, not a law to infringe or tighten it.

I would add people who live with or are related to (family or marriage) anyone who has ever been to a terrorist nation.

1). Federal concealed carry permits on a shall issue basis, meaning that unless you are restricted from owning a firearm for legal reasons you will be issued a CCW that is recognized in every state.

2). Remove the restriction on nonviolent felons owning a firearm once they have served their sentence.

3). Mandated firearms safety courses in public schools, starting with basic safety in elementary school and culminating with function and operation in high school.

4). Life imprisonment with no parole for anyone who isconvicted of a violent crime using a firearm.

There are a few laws that would help.

I don't know where you got the idea that I'm for gun control. The point I was making is that the whole concept of "liking" something is emotion-based.

People like you who make assumptions about my ideology based on nothing are making the rest of us conservatives look bad. You act more like someone from the Obama-voter crowd.

Okay, lets chalk it up as a misinterpretation on my side. I apologize. I am definitely not an Obama voter type.
