    Playing devil’s advocate for just a minute here… Who exactly is going to pay for this? I mean, the BATFE gets thousands of NFA applications a month right now and has something like 9-12 people working on those apps. As it is, they take 6-8 months to process the paperwork. Now they propose that those 10 people are going to handle literally MILLIONS of new NFA applications in short order? um, okay. That’s completely reasonable…

      Excellent point! So IF this was to pass, maybe with a 6-12 month grace period, we would probably all be felons when our paperwork didn’t come through in time right? We just need to make sure that NOTHING gets passed limiting our gun rights because of one yahoo bent on murder.

    That is exactly the point… 1- they get to charge us an outrageous fee per firearm. 2- they would get a complete list of who has what and where, 3- they can more us down in layers upon layers of red tape bullshit….

    So, Diane, once you’ve seized all of the guns, how long will it take you to get the ovens in the death camps up and running?

    It boggles my mind that people like her CONTINUE to be elected into office. As well as president, mayors(NY-Chicago-etc.)

    Greetings,

    Due to the recent events at Sandy Hook elementary school we now face renewed threats to our Constitutional rights. While I understand how painful the loss must be for those touched by this tragedy, blaming firearms or their owners and punishing them is not the answer to the challenges we face as a nation.

    We already have laws that were violated by a man who was likely psychotic and heavily medicated. This man was stopped by the mandatory background check from purchasing firearms. He then decided to murder his mother and take her legally owned firearms to commit this tragedy.

    If your true goal is to protect our children, then enact legislation that will do that. Banning firearms that are rarely used in crime (less than 1% of the time) is not going to stop such tragedies, that was proven in 1999 when the Columbine shooting took place under the 1994 ban. Do something meaningful, please. Make committing the insane easier. Put armed security guards in our schools. But do not strip us of our rights and property by passing additional anti-gun laws that have historically had no positive effect on crime in our nation or others.

    Thank you.

    Laws do not stop crime – A law is broken every time a crime is committed

    Dustin, you stated the most important thing there is. Contact your reps and media outlets “continually”. I sent emails and saved the drafts for printing out for snail mail. Also, sent drafts to friends around the country to modify for there own use. Called there offices and left messages and will keep calling every week.Bought 2 more NRA memberships for others. 25$ each at guntalk.com and shootingusa.com. But have to emphasize to your gun owning friends that we can’t have any bench warmers on this one. They all have to pull there weight.
