Firearms makers should pool 2 of their best engineers each to develop trigger covers, locks-the key kind or battery operated push-button ones or palm-print lock releases and back develop them for new and prior firearms. I'd support a law requiring owners to acquire them and having governments pay 1/2 the cost to buy.
One dependable owner friend supports intense screening. Does our poster group support this too.
Some years ago Colt's was working on a "smart gun." Maryland (I think) passed a law that would "only allow smart guns in the state once the technology was perfected." The law also made law enforcement exempt because the technology was "too unreliable." By the way, the owner of Colt's Firearms (Donald Zilcha) donated lots of money to the Maryland governor'c campaign. He also gave lots of money to Chuck "U" Schummer. I follow the firearms industry very closely. I don't know of ANY technolgy currently being pursued for developing a "smart gun."
I am a firm believer and supporter of our 2nd amendment rights to bear arms... with that said, yes, positive action and responses are needed.. but not more useless gun laws.. I am not sure that there is any good way to address this issue.. people killing people has been around since cain and abel and there is no way you can legislate that out of a society...
I agree. We are lucky to have the 2nd amendment unlike most other countries in the world. A review of the history of gun control in the world and the sickening results of the terrible death that occurred when fanatical dictators took control. With this in mind one would never consider gun control again.
these killings have little or nothing to do with guns - it is the nit-wits that are killing people --- and in some cases [like the last one] another idiot putting the gun in the hands of nit-wits
unfortunately the last ones paid for their mistake with their life ---- and no one has an answer to how to deal with mental issues without stepping on our civil liberties -- when we are willing to do that we can solve the problem or at least make improvement
