    so why are you so afraid to tell us what those additional laws are?
    Close gun show loophole, require handgun license, limit magazine sizes, registry of handguns and assault rifles, outlaw open carry.

    "According to Prof. David Kopel of the University of Denver's Strum School of Law, in the past 25 years, 42 states have made similar alterations to their laws, changing the language to state that a sheriff "shall issue" (instead of "may issue") firearm permits to applicants without a felony record. According to Aaron Dorr, executive director of Iowa Gun Owners, sheriffs may reject a permit application based on the applicant's behavior in the previous two years.
    "We don't think being legally blind is a behavior," Dorr says"

    .Should the legally blind be allowed to carry guns in public? - Crimesider - CBS News
    The blind should be legally allowed to carry in public.The 2nd amendment says the people the right to keep and bear arms.It does not say only those who can see the right to keep and bear arms, the right of only those not convicted of a felony the right to keep and bear arms and so on.A blind person deserves the protection of a gun just like anyone else does.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    see you are anti gun

    there are no gun show loopholes-that demonstrates you are ignorant of the law

    why should people have a license to exercise a right

    magazine limits is a moronic suggestion that has no "limit" to how far it will go and only applies to honest people

    assault rifles-again you prove you are ignorant of the law-they have been registered since 1934 and banned (those made after may 19, 1986)

    why should handguns be registered? that is a wet dream for gun banners

    why should open carry be banned-that eliminates security guards like Brinks

    Yes your solutions are extreme anti gun idiocy and have no valid use in a free society

    My mother's legally blind. She knows how close a target has to be, in order for her to be able to safely shoot at it.

    Like all matters related to arming rights, it's a matter of responsibility.

    So... you need a "mommy may I" permit in order to exercise a natural human right. Sorry, but this means you are against gun rights.

    Good, but the fact remains, you support most of the shopping list of the hard core anti gun movement

    I believe I would have to side on err of freedom and say the person should be allowed to carry a firearm unless he/she breaks the law in such a way that would require to revoke their right to carry or own a firearm under the law.
