    Strict punishment for shooters (not death penalty), help for the mentally ill, and media blackouts.

    No, I don't think violent video games are an issue. What is an issue is poor parenting and a refusal to believe that people can be downright evil.

    Real enforcement of existing laws would be a very good start, but that is very expensive as most are simply plead down and the prisons are full. Most US violent crime is drug/gang related and occurs in "no tell" (free crime) zones, aka urban centers. Too much focus is on the "spectacular" mass/serial killings and too little on the "normal" crime. I realize that simply avoiding these "free crime" zones is perfectly acceptable to most, and that they get excited only when it spills over into their "safe turf" but guns/movies/games are not the problem, "normal" criminals and the criminally insane are. When we get serious about removing the vast majority of "normal" criminals from society then perhaps we can address these "side" issues.

    Crazy people are not concerned with sentencing or the death penalty. We need to fight this gun violence on many fronts, among them:

    violence ratings on video games and movies just like they devised for sexual content;

    Banning high capacity magazines and the guns that use them;

    Requiring a waiting period for new gun purchases in all states, including at gun shows;

    Extending the background check to mental history;


    Those are the best proposals I've heard. What are other suggestions?

    DO you what gets rid of gangs, mafias. Just make a deal that they can shoot up a bar where the gang members hang out and there will conveniently be no police in the area.

    There are already ratings on video games, that have violence.

    Well the first one already exists if have ever looked at the back of a game case or movie. They should only exist as guidelines only and not be enforceable.

    They may not be as concerned as the average citizen, but there is still some semblence of thought process going on, and most of us learn right from wrong, and that killing is wrong, in our formative years. The American public as a whole is concerned, and if we sentence and execute murderous criminals, consistently, the deterrent effect will have a lessening effect.

    I do not support any gun control measures beyond what we already have, because it's not the guns that are causing the problem.

    5.)Those are the best proposals I've heard. What are other suggestions?
    1.) they already are and this wont change anything
    2.) again pointless because criminals dont care about bans, mark harsh laws for ILLEGAL weapons (selling, importing, manufacturing etc.) banning my law abbiding citizens is dumb, it endangers them and empowers criminals
    3.) again see above wont fix anything but harm law abiding citizens id fight this one always because its also dumb. I would be fine with NOT allowing sells at guns shows OR that those seel are regulated and done the same way in as stores do it though but no waiting period that endangers normal citizens and empowers criminals
    4.) im fine with this one depending one what that mental history is. FOr example I had a heart surgery (catheter) and every time i get insurance (medical or life) or NEW doctor visits im considered a "heart patient" for no reason because there is no break down" initial" between someone like me that actually has nothing wrong with them now, no meds ZERO additional risks and someone that just had a heart attack , triple by pass and is on meds.

    just saying i wouldnt want someone being denied a gun or made to wait because they took a memory drug 20 years ago

    5.) IMO some of those are HORRIBLE but i suggest weeks and other ways.

    If the video games I have seen kids play have already been rated, than the rating system needs to be revised.
