    However, when I was in the USAF people that didn't appear to be mentally capable of being reliable, etc. were kicked out. Just the Drill Sargents were considered expert enough to kick someone out and did for 'mental' reasons. Militia leadership could do the same.

    That would leave the entire State of Florida, a large part of Texas and the entire town of Macbee, SC without a militia!

    gun background checks should include medical records. gun dealers need to know if their buyers are being treated for certain disorders, and there should be guidelines of who can and cannot buy guns, based on certain qualifiers.

    however, thee should of course be ways around this, including notes from a licenced psychologist attesting to one's ability to safely possess a firearm.

    That's a heaping pile of bravo sierra, Thunder. Not needed and not acceptable.

    So when was it that the majority of the voting public decided the issue of firearms having enough controls on them?

    An April poll by CNN may have left the network moguls stunned because it showed that 46% of the respondents do not support new gun control measures, and 15% said gun laws ought to be relaxed.

    The combined figures overwhelmed the 39% who think the country should tighten its gun laws, down from 50% reported in a 2000 poll, according to The Houston Chronicle.

    Gee Thunder, I wasn't even the first to reply to defend my position. Do you know how many holes there are in a process like you describe? The dealers in AZ sell to anybody, but they do get their hands slapped sometimes. A misfit in a real militia is noticed right away, he is out. Not a militia member with an ID then no guns.

    Re: Guns

    Yes, those are polls. I am aware that over the past thirty years the percentage of those polled has changed. I do not take issue with that.

    What I am asking you is when the VOTERS decided this issue as you claimed.

    your post 261

    Because the majority of the voting public has decided that we have enough gun control laws already, thank you very much, and don't see the need for more
    There is a difference with a distinction. The point is that the American people have never voted on this issue - nor will they since we are not a direct democracy.
