It is not the nra,
it is not the gun nuts,
it is not the republiclans,
it is not the gun sellers,
it is not the gun buyers.

the real problem is the gun OWNERS

most, if not ALL "gun bans" do NOT ban the ownership of any guns
most, if not ALL "background checks" do NOT check the owners of any guns



Read the Rules

I would suggest another problem is that any gun nut anywhere in the U.S. can take over the media with a gun outburst, while wall street commits paper violence against a million people or more at a time, and it goes unreported.

I don't understand your point. No, really, I don't get what you mean.

The 1994 "ban" did not "ban" any guns either - thats why it did not work.

No, the real problem is our "troubled violent youth". Solve that problem and gun ownership won't be a problem.

There are other "ills" in todays society that needs more attention then "banning ownership of firearms".

Here's the way i see it.

First - deal with the mental health issue - Next - deal with the drug issue. Next - deal with the gang issue Next - deal with the rape issues Next - deal with stabbing issues Next - deal with violence against women issues Next - deal with the education issue Next - deal with the "single parent" household issue Next - deal with the poverty issue

There are a lot of other issues to list but I think you will get the idea.

That would be a "start" and if after dealing with all those issues we still have "mass murders" using firearms then it will be time to deal with "violent person firearms crimes".
