“Maybe the intended secrecy of the agreements in contradiction with the public tone of transparency his administration has tried to project and the appearance that he is in bed with said banks and businesses has something to do with it....”

“Actually there is a national registration required for some guns. Like I said, it all depends on the caliber.

“There already is. Legal registration, licensing and confiscation already exists. It just depends on the caliber. I do not think registration leads to confiscation. Many confiscations have been aided by registration but registration doesn't automatically mean confiscation. I am more interested in safety and responsibility. I also know we will never eliminate irresponsible use of guns but it is something we all should strive for and I know that can be accomplished without confiscation.”

“No, there is no law requiring anyone to register their guns. The only time anyone is required to register is if they wish to conceal carry. C'mon.”

“I don't quite understand your doctor/patient reference and I'm not going to attempt to design and defend a system for gun ownership here. I would however rely heavily on groups like the NRA to promote and regulate responsible gun ownership. I know they do this now and yes it is nothing novel but I would like to see it done to a greater degree with the goal of licensing and registration.”

bbw1966 on Dec 8, 2013 at 14:10:01

“There will never, ever be gun registration. Ever. Registration is the first step to confiscation. Have you taken history courses on gun registration through out history? Horrid. Never, ever going to happen. Not here. Ever.”

“I don't want guns to go away, nor cars, nor cigarettes, nor knives etc. Whenever I have gone out to the desert, I have enjoyed shooting targets and 'plinking'. I do however, fear people. That's why I believe in responsible ownership and feel those that cannot accept and demonstrate that responsibility should be deprived their right of ownership.”

bbw1966 on Dec 8, 2013 at 12:49:57

“demonstrate to who? Everybody believes in responsible gun ownership. That is not anything new or novel. You can not violate doctor/patient confidentiality, so how to demonstrate...and to who... and what makes them a 'reliable' judge?”

“As a youth, I attended NRA safety classes as part if the Boy Scouts. I was in the Army and in a war. I am on the same side as those that want responsible gun ownership. I have no problem with licensing or registration. Citing isolated instances justifying both the pro and con just that and they are fodder for propagandists on both sides. Just speaking my mind about how I feel.”

“Always on the hair trigger I see, please continue to defend irresponsible gun ownership and eventually you will end up defending the wrong folks.. If you want to keep that right in the long run please push for responsibility among your peers.”

“Why try to change the laws for over 300 million, even yours, because you fear them? You see what is happening in any city with strict gun laws. You see what is happening to places that are 'gun-free' zones. If you want to pass on your second, feel free, but do not think, even for a moment that guns will 'go away'.”
