The fact is the current system does work. Besides total confiscation of ALL weapons, what exactly would have prevented the Sandy Hook massacre? I haven't heard one rational argument on that yet. Is the left willing to really attempt confiscation? If so they will lose, and this country will be in a civil war and then we all lose.
I agree. An open discussion to lessen murder rates and hopefully prevent future incidents like Sandy Hook are needed. There are plenty of issues to deal with and no single solution will be enough.
There is a lot of scare mongering about confiscation of guns, which isn't going to happen, nor would it be on the table, but the NRA and gun lobby love to play that card.
It's not useful, in fact it's a cynical attempt to drive gun sales and NRA memberships. They are acting like 'troofers,' and for the same purpose.....$$$
