Only if all of the components are available.

We could ban primers, for instance. You can make your own, but it's a pain in the fanny.

Shrinking not just in percentage, but in actual numbers.

The path will be.
Registration
Ban Military style rifles
Ban High capacity magazines
Ban All rifles
Ban All handguns
Ban All shotguns except for farmers
Disarmed most police officers
No knives
You can take my pickle fork when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

So much drama.

this is interesting. Since this kid had all the warning signs but wasn't actually convicted of anything, so i would see any kind of list being similar to what the complaints are about the no fly list. I would imagine we'll see the NRA play both sides of the fence on this...don't ban guns, focus on mental health but you can't ban guns from the people you focus mental health on.

Its interesting the hypocrisy of the NRA when it comes to these matters.

It proposes to keep floating it so people will be diverted from banning AR-15's. That's the NRA's plan for mental health.

Keep the focus and talk on AR15s, when the AK47 is the most mass produced and widely used assault weapon on the planet...Yeah, that seems to be working great, Ive rarely heard anyone mention the availability of AK47s and how many new ones are being cranked out all the time! A lot of good the 1986 ban on NEW full autos has been! LOL

but to ban guns and to confiscate all weapons would not only be a violation of our 2nd amendment right...but also of the 4th amendment.......... the funny thing is liberals were all up in arms (pun intended) about "stop and frisk" saying it violated the 4th

Since you're so quick to rant about liberals perhaps you can tell us specifically what the Republican controlled Congress/White House has done about "POLICY/FUND TO HELP WITH THE MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES THAT ARE PLAGUING AMERICA" in the past thirteen months?

HINT: Suckling at the NRA teat doesn't count.

.... liberals argue against adding the mental part of the background checks....they spin that it will be a violation of HIPAA


simple yes?
but noooo, liberals have to complain that it would be a violation of hipaa
Reform the HIPPA law so we can report someone is CRAZY/mentally unstable, so that person isn't allowed to buy a firearm from a gun store. But I doubt people (esp Liberals) want their privacy rights infringed on.

I think we can all agree that this kid is mentally unstable. The warning signs were all there. His mom called the cops of him..neighbors called the cops...i think it was 23 times in total over the years. He was reported to the school, reported to the FBI, etc. Again, the signs were there however he really never committed any crime. At what point does the NRA feel this kid should have been on a list or failed a background check? Should these events have triggered a mental health examination where the results get shared into a background check DB? Should there be a mental health exam when purchasing a gun?

Given NRA's history of fighting to allow people on the no-fly list to purchase guns or saying that people deemed mentally unfit by a court should still be allowed to buy guns, what exactly does NRA propose to do in this situation?
What does the NRA have to do with this ? HIPAA laws prevent medical records being shared with the NICS.

No fly list? It’s easier to flush the constitution down the toilet.

Two words for you: due process. Now go study before you rant in NRA again.
