Sure you can fix this! First you stop walking around in circles, by trying to pass foolish legislation regulating fast firing mechanisms. (They can circumvent anything you come up with.) Then start passing regulations on how fast per minute, and per second, a gun is allowed to shoot. Place lifetime sentences on violations: Of owning, selling or possessing such a weapon.

And I'm not going to be funneled into your narrow voting choice on regulation. No vote.

As long as we can be wise and courageous enough to stop making and manufacturing these weapons! We have to begin this journey from the gut-wrenching source ... stop making theses weapons and stop allowing them to fall into the hands of those folks existing just outside of reality! We CAN DO this ....

The last I heard the feds banned the Thomsen submachine gun in the 1930's to control the gangsters. The gangsters had them too. When was that ban ended?

Here's another idea. Since they have the right to carry and conceal weapons. Why aren't we allowed to carry non-gun/rifle weapons? Things will change when they pull out their weapons and see stars.

Thom, Stop trolling your listeners.

Of all the topics that you think you are an expert, guns is not one of them. You embarrass yourself literally every time you bring up the subject. Especially when you tell people that Geico would be writing million dollar checks to every victim of crimes committed with a firearm. You don't apparently know how to drive but if you did you would understand that there is a cash payout limit on your automobile policy.

BTW, Fully automatic firearms (machine guns to you) are currently, and have been for dozens of years, fully controlled by the Federal government. Those with a class three license have gone through many FBI background checks, paid the fees, and waited for, in some cases years to get permission from the Federal government to own or sell one.

Tommy guns were banned in the '30s because they were the gun of choice of gangsters so why can't assault rifles be banned at some future date should the GOP ever lose their majority.

"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment.

From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
