    Well then I agree - but when used, guns are still lethal, ergo guns need to not be in the hands of those who could do harm with them. Mental illness, convicted felons, sexual and domestic abusers...no guns for you. I couldn't agree more, but banning everyone from ownership still does not prevent those you mention above from obtaining the. Last I checked, Meth, Cocaine, Heroin, etc are illegal and yet we have rehab clinics all over the country,

    And on the Mental illness, keep in mind that a big majority of your so called "mental health professionals" are left wing anti gun liberals. So if everyone had to have a mental evaluation in order to purchase a firearm, I'm pretty sure nobody will be able to legally.

    I think guns should be registered like cars Someone correct me if I'm wrong but at least in the State of Illinois I'm pretty sure everytime you buy a weapon from a dealer the weapon and it's serial number is logged with ISP or whomever oversees the FOID system.

    I agree something needs to be done, but there is no single solution that will fix this problem. Me personally....society as a whole has gone down the crapper. When I went to school we said the Lords Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance everyday. My parents were not afraid to whip me (and believe me I had my share..and I'm a normal person) and my teachers were able to punish me as well. I was taught to respect my elders and to respect others as well. I also learned growing up that you don't always win at everything, losing sucked but it just made you try harder not to lose again. And yes I think there's a lot to say about these shoot em up video games desensitizing our youth. I could go on, but I'm getting to like El Roy and I need to take a nap.
