I understand the grandfathering point and I think that you'd have to initially grandfather people in.
I also think that some people, particularly younger people, need those lessons repeated and repeated. Young people kind of have a tendency to think that they're bulletproof, so to speak.
I'm actually not opposed to showing videos of actual shootings, provided such videos exist. Actual photographs of gun shot wounds. Maybe interviews with gun shot survivors.
Maybe an upper age limit to the recertifications? Maybe a maximum number or recertifications required?
Maybe, if you hit age 40 and you've owned guns for a minimum of 10 years, then we'll let you off the hook for recertifications
we have a local Neurosurgeon ( Chief of Neurosurgery) that carries a colt 1911, he is also a lead "Terminal Ballistic expert" for the FBI and CIA. he gives a great seminar at the Gun club, on what happens when bullets meet tissue. He has full color pictures, detailed x-rays and crime scene photos, it's not for the faint of hart. But it's absolutely fascinating and he is a very funny doctor that can talk to people on a "lower scale" so you can understand what he's talking about. When he gives his seminar, its standing room only.
And we all know that not all citizens follow the rules. Look at the trayvon killing, those boys at the gas station..... that guy who shot his niece cause he thought she was a skunk.....and he was sober.....
Just too many instances where innocent people are getting killed by responsible adults with guns..... Americans prove time and time again that they just cant be trusted to own firearms.
I dont believe Obams will come after all the guns....... If I was him Id just come after the military looking ones and then the semi auto handguns.
Coming up with a new signature..... Aint nobody got time for that.
This isn't going to change that there is going to be a ban on firearms and ammo put in place sooner rather then later.
You all had your chance to temper it but as usual you decided to bite off your noses to spite your face.
And it is due to:
Thinking its a right to own any gun imaginable.
Wanting a piece of the action.
Revenge on criminals.
Irresponsible storage of weaponry.
Fear of any loss of weaponry.
Taking a hobby too seriously.
I dislike Feinstein as much as the next guy, but I would at least TRY to outsmart her.
