Subject: RE: BS: AZ Congresswoman Giffords shot
In the 1950's there were virtually no gun laws Bobster, you could order a .45 cal pistol right from guns and ammo magazine delivered right to your door. yet like you say, shooting were so rare. What changed, drugs, gangs, a rise in mental illness. In states like mine we have the hardest gun controls in the nation, In DC all guns of every type banned. Yet the killing continues. Somewhere our society changed. Now we find out what and try our best to fix it. I read someplace that if we eliminated the gun show, over 60% of the illegal guns would be taken off the street, that is a law that makes sense. I have no problem with semi - auto's the problem I have is people who are not certified and trained with them, yup that is a law we need also since those weapons require much more training than a wheel gun. complex issues here, lets start but plugging the gun show law, lets get some federal standards on concealed carry .. yup .. I am with ya ... but lets find and address those that maybe constitute a threat via early intervention. Find the money for that also. All good stuff
