There is good news in the change department, check this out
Seems our guys have taken the NRA seriously, with their claim that guns don't kill people, people kill people.
This bill before congress requires the gun owners to register before they can purchase a gun.
The registration process seems simlar to professions, so I guess they want to professionalize gun ownership, which seems like a great idea to me.
They have to be photographed and fingerprinted, certify that their firearms are safetly stored and kept from any unauthorized gun lovers, like anyone under eighteen, and anyone who isn't also registered. They'd have to pass an exam to prove they know how to operate a firearm safety, and are aware of the risks of having guns around.
This isn't so different from a license to practice in many professional fields. My prints have been on record for decades, but, wouldn't you know, the gun owners don't like this one either.
Can't register guns, cause they say don't punish the guns, guns don't kill people, people kill people. Can't register gun owners cause, hey, they simply don't want anyone to know a damn thing about them.
Let's let congress know that we like this bill, and we agree, guns don't kill people, people kill people.
