We are a free country today because of our vets, not because you have a big gun supply in your home. My guns were more or less regerstered when I filled out the forms to buy them years ago and you may not believe this but I still have them. That big bad goverment must not know where I live?

soundco, I have my vehicles regestered an the big bad boogieman goverment has not confiscated them yet. According to you we really don't need breaking and entering laws or rape laws or speed laws or any other laws because the honest person don't do these things and criminals are going to do them anyway. Sounds about like background checks. Laws are made to punish the criminals when they break them, not to punish the law abiding person. But if you don't pass the laws there is no way to punish the ones that should be punished. You need to get over the fear of goverment taking your guns and putting you in a labor camp. Maybe you should move to Iraq. They seem to have bombs and all kinds of weapons and that would be like heaven for you.You could blow up things and just really enjoy your life. By the way, I spent 4 years in the service and I and my fellow vets would have never obeyed any order to go house to house and confiscate guns and I don't think a lot of people understand that. cont.

In light of the ongoing record of tragedies during the past decades, we simply must "do something" about the senseless deaths & injuries caused by motor vehicles. We simply must insist that the government come up with some way to find out... before someone is issued a driver's license or gains access to an automobile, whether purchased, borrowed or stolen... whether that person is likely to: drive drunk, run a red light or stop sign, fall asleep at the wheel, commit exhibition driving, engage in road rage, text while driving, make a phone call while driving or otherwise do anything that might cause injury to themselves or others.

Join with me in calling on auto manufacturers, the public and the gub-mint to formulate and enact these preventative measures before one more tragedy shows up in the headlines!! Thank you for your support on this ongoing, well documented and deadly issue!

Create another bureaucracy to monitor and control the responsible, sane and law-abiding citizenry but ignore the causes of the pathologies that lead to violence.

Our family shotgun and rifle rested, empty of shells and "broken," on our country school's cloakroom shelf so my brother and I could hunt on our way to and from that school; but that, of course, was before progressive programs had created all the social pathologies that afflict America now. Democrat gun control proposals are basically no different from similar proposals they have made to limit free speech via resurrection of the so-called "fairness doctrine" to control radio and TV content: fascism by any other name...

soundco...Hmmm, let me recall, Dec. 2004 through June 2008. Hmmm, Oh ya, that was during your Bush/9% approval rating Cheney administration and Mr. Rumsfeld was the Secretary of Defense! They decided Afghanistan and bin laden weren't important and drove us into a war in Iraq, remember? We all know how that worked out! I'm not surprised we didn't know where 87,000 weapons went! I'm sorry that you were offended by my "Paranoia" comment...it was not directed at you personally but at the righty belief that the government is coming to take away the guns. Can you cite evidence where this has or is now happening? If it's going on, they're doing a very poor job of it!

1. Universal background checks. 2. Severe penalties in failing to provide adequate security of the weapon whether at home, in a vehicle or on one's self. Drunk or under the influence? (Not good)! State law through the courts will determine the penalty. 3. Registration and background checks on ALL sales! 4. Provide law enforcement with the necessary resources and personel to adequately address the criminal element. OK NRA buds, start jamming the disagree button!

wkupia, have you ever purchased a firearm? If you have, then you know the paperwork required even before you make the purchase, let alone walk out of the store with it. If people want to kill with a gun, they will find a way to get it no matter how many laws there are.

The really sad thing about these horrible deaths is that it takes a peace officer to be slain before anyone really wakes up! How about all the children in schools, movie theatres, etc. Aren't their lives worth anything? Owning a gun - and I know there will be lots of flak about this - should require some intelligence. Gun dealers that sell guns whether in a store, at a gun show or wherever, need to be held responsible too. It's just a chance to make some $$.
