    Yet another shooting has happening. Maybe it's time to finally outlaw gun ownership? There are too many shootings happening recently and it's not like it is going to stop. People get injured and killed every single day. It seems like we are turning into a third world country. That trend must be stopped since none of our policies actually work.
    Once again blaming a tool in the hands of a killer.

    And how do we know the gun in question was legally owned? How do we know the shooter didn't obtain it from some shady character selling guns from the trunk of his car?

    Nope. Not time.

    Wouldn't work anyway. 300 million guns in circulation.

    Barring house to house and building to building searches of the entire nation using gun-sniffing dogs, you'll only disarm the law-abiding, not the criminal or the crazy.


    So I vote Nay Nay.

    Don't know about Detroit, but the Philly shooters were Black according to the article in the first post.

    Why not require that all adults carry a firearm at all times?? Make firearm training mandatory in all schools, starting in kindergarten (age appropriate training all the way). That way, if someone did open fire, they would only get off one or two shots and they would be stopped. If our culture was such that using a firearm in a criminal effort resulted in immediate death/serious injury, the idea that using a firearm to commit a crime would rapidly become one of "Oh, hell no!!!"

    Before you even begin to consider dismantling the 2nd amendment and the process that involves, why dont you see what you can do to impose bans on drugs and for that matter, human beings, and effectively prevent criminals from getting banned substances. Then target the people actually perpetrating those violent crimes. After that...come talk to me and we'll see if your foray into a ban on guns is even necessary.

    This is not going to happen EVER. Even if an amendment was passed nixing the 2nd amendment it would be impossibe getting the gazillion guns out there. You see our second civil war. forget about it.

    Thats a really stupid idea, it would allow people to murder and say the person drew a gun on me so I shot him. Not a well thought out idea, faithful.

    Just makes one wonder how the folks of my grandparent's and parent's generations survived. They had guns aplenty, no registration, no government control of guns and were free to carry them anywhere.
