Here we go again another "sick whiny young person" wanting to get even because he can't have what he wants. We have a society of "sick youth" in this country. It's not the firearm that's the problem it is the "violent youth" of this country.

Look at the vast majority of our youth - they are all wimpy looking and as a result walk around with a "feeling of being insecure" because they don't have any "balls"

I say families with youth in their household (with the exception of people living outside big cities) shouldn't be allowed to own any kind of firearm until all dependents are of the age of 18.

Then they should be required to have a "psychological exam" to determine if they are mentally capable to take on responsibility of any kind.

If they don't pass then "no firearms for them

That's a good way to put it. Gun nuttery distractions.

Are you gonna lobby for all knives to be confiscated as well? What about hammers or baseball bats or or or or or or or or or or or or or

Boy there are times when I would really miss not having a steak knife.

I think you should have a "psychological exam".

Any physical assaults? - you know beatings and such? Any stabbings or hit and runs or ..............

You’re pretty quick to take people’s rights away. Wouldn’t it be better to address the problem directly.

The primary solution to gun violence in the US is to crack down on street gangs, Take their guns away and crime would drop substantially overnight, It wouldn’t be easy, but if enough effort were put into it crime would drop. Rather drastic, but maybe martial law in some urban areas. I think the honest citizens would support it.

I don’t support your idea. Removing guns does not solve social problems.

This has nothing to do with "street gangs" although that is a problem. This is the 4th shooting by a "young person" in the last month and a half.

And if you haven't noticed - everyone wants to take everyones guns away. I just came up with a "local gun extraction" idea.
