Please fill out questionarre:

2. Do you hate Christians?
3. How many voices are telling you not to fill out this form?
Wut do we need to stop the violence? Ban all guns like they do in Chicago where people die from guns everyday that is ignored by Obama?
How about doing a comprehensive objective study of gun control laws in countries like Britain and northern Europe, getting a panel of statistics experts to isolate the key variables, and making a serious attempt to study which gun control regulations are likely to decrease mass shootings while not infringing on the right to self-defense?
Throw $10 million federal dollars into the study. Hire a panel of gun experts, constitutional experts, criminologists and statisticians and have them study the issue for 6 months and write a report with specific recommendations. Then let the states carefully weight the findings and act on them.
How many more of these bloody mass shootings do we need to see until we do something serious about stopping them??
Maybe they panel will come back and say there's nothing we can do - that the shooting have nothing to do with gun availability, but something in our culture is the culprit. I don't know. But let's TRY something.
You're pro-life, right? I get that and respect it. So isn't it worth it to study the issue and try to protect people from being needlessly gunned down? What are we afraid of? Admitting that maybe some other countries have some good ideas on this issue that we can borrow?
