"Registration systems also create accountability for firearm owners and discourage illegal sales.
Firearm registration laws can lead to the identification and prosecution of violent criminals by helping law enforcement quickly and reliably “trace” (identify the source of) firearms recovered from crime scenes. Firearm registration laws create comprehensive records of firearm ownership, which include a full description of each firearm and identify the owner. Comprehensive registration laws also require a firearm to be re-registered whenever title to the firearm is transferred, and law enforcement to be notified whenever the weapon is lost or stolen. As a result, registration laws help law enforcement quickly and reliably identify the owner of any firearm used in a crime."
I honestly can not see why this is such a hassle to you
its a relatively simple procedure
...but then again I'm not the paranoid type
I have a completely different understanding of it
anything YOU will say about the constitution (needs to be tossed) to the rubbish heap
actually that was a cheap shot from you
as your constitution involves a tad more than just the second
yet you label this one difference in viewpoint as my not understand the entire thing
More facts rolling in. The handwriting was there. No one put the pieces together, sigh...
Shortly before the shootings, Fryberg sent a selfie to his ex-girlfriend showing himself holding a gun, a law enforcement official told CNN. It is unclear if it was the same .40 caliber pistol used in the attack.
From the same article. Wow...
School shooting victim forgives the gunman - his cousin - CNN.com- How does a 14-year-old high school student, shot in the face and told he can never play football again, feel about his attacker?
In a tweet he sent from his hospital, Nate Hatch says he forgives his cousin -- the shooter who opened fire at Marysville-Pilchuck High School in Washington on Friday.
Two students, Zoe Galasso and Gia Soriano, were killed. Two others, in addition to Nate, are still hospitalized.
The shooter, Jaylen Fryberg, took his own life.
"I love you and I forgive you jaylen rest in peace," Nate tweeted.
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the
security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed"
(mines got a lot more commas than yours )
"With its convoluted phrasing and clauses whose relation to each other is fuzzy, the
amendment begs a number of questions. What makes a "militia", and what makes it "well
regulated"? Who are the "people"? What kinds of "arms" can be kept and borne? Most crucially,
does this amendment's second half refer to all citizens, or only to members of a militia?"
The Supreme Court's 1939 decision, while murky, affirmed that the amendment's purpose is to guarantee
an effective militia. In subsequent cases, the Court found that the National Guard is the equivalent
of earlier militias. Ten circuit courts have agreed, finding that Miller refers to individuals serving
in well-regulated militias.
its always a matter of perspective
and before I'm accused of being anti firearm please understand I own three
...which I must admit I haven't stroked for sometime now...I should really go see to their needs soon
Medical helicopters were turned away at Marysville shootings | Local News | The Seattle TimesMedical helicopters were turned away at Marysville shootings
Twenty-five minutes after Friday’s shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, two air ambulances hovered near the campus, prepared to transport the critically wounded to the region’s highest-rated trauma hospital.
Interesting development. While Providence Everett is a fine hospital, it is common knowledge that Harborview is the best hospital in the NW for severe trauma, especially children. I wondered about this myself.

again what is the purpose of having a "mean and nasty gun" for hunting bambi?
or that fact why full auto?
has bambi learned to shoot back?
mean and nasty belongs in wars...are you planning your own personal one soon?
do you need "mean and nasty" to get the point across "please stay out of my house"?

AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
