    That would be step one.
    The problem you are highlighting is gunners do not look beyond the end of the barrel while the AGs can't see the target at the same time.

    You're right. Water guns were made to annoy people.

    Nope. As I said above, assault rifles -- the M-16 and similar -- were designed specifically to wound.

    Not to mention the various types of ammunition designed to do even less damage, such as rubber bullets. They're designed specifically for non-lethal riot suppression.

    Look, that you didn't know this doesn't make it any less true.

    Breaking news as I write this. Reported that 10 dead and 2 gunmen, and 1 arrested.

    Speculation is now what the motivation is.
    My heart goes out to the families of the victims.

    OK, but we ALL agree that their is no need for a lawnmower permit, or a circular saw permit. We have plenty of laws to restrict legal sales to criminals, and too many laws to restrict non-criminals from legally carrrying their legally purchased handguns. If I can legally walk down the street with a chainsaw, then I can legally walk down the street with a handgun as long as I obey the laws with either. ;-)

    True ,that would be a good start.
    However the debate over guns is an old debate.
    You mention gun control and the N.R.A. makes a speech about the constitution and some redneck says you can take my gun from my cold dead hand , or something like that.

    Truth is I don't want to take any responsible person's gun, I just would like it to be more difficult for bad or disturbed people to buy a gun.

    He had an assault rifle. The one man, 3 guns. That's all it took.
