All,

VP Biden has alluded that initial recomedations will be made Tuesday of next week. There was also a casual mention of "Executive Action" I predict that:

- The Assualt Weapons Ban will be re-instated
- High Capacity magazines banned
- Enhanced backgound checks

Even though I am one of "them" that owns an assault rifle, I can't logically contest the previous predictions. I carried a AR-15/M-4 for over 20 years, I like to shoot it for sport and own it because I wanted to own one. Not because I needed it for hunting or protection. Does this mean that I agree or am for the aforementioned predictions? No, but I can also see the writing on the wall. I am interested to see what else will be presented for legislation. Actually; kind of apprehensive to be honest. My hope is that options presented are objective and attainable. The current administations track record suggest otherwise, I guess we will see soon enough. So...any other predictions?

I think they should go one step further and say if you own a certain amount of guns you should have a special permit. This way any responsible person can have their gund but drug dealers and other questionable people will be subject to felony charges for stock piling weapons.

I agree also with Up2. I would like to see a law where the gun owner is responsible for anyone who gets access to their weapon. Say for instance if you have an unstable person that could gain access to them, their actions would be on you. Like they made it with the children's parents being held responsible if the child got ahold of the weapon. Something like that. It may not help much but it couldn't hurt.

pravda.ru the Russian news source had a very interesting article recently about America and our guns.

It is very interesting and I'd advise anyone to read it.

They also had an interesting piece recently about the decline of the traditional family unit in the households of America.

I also concur with the responsibility to secure any firearms that you own. When you own a firearm that is an implied task. The statistics of course relect differently. This alludes to my hope that hopes that the commission provides tangible solutions that are attainable. Making it mandatory to secure your firearms is something that makes sense and by no means an infringement of the 2nd amendment.

In October of 2000, the U.S. Secret Service published a study of 37 school shootings in 26 states. That study found that in more than 65% of the cases, the attacker got the gun from his or her own home or that of a relative.

Child access prevention laws have been shown to be effective at reducing unintentional firearm deaths among children. One study found that in twelve states where such laws had been in effect for at least one year, unintentional firearm deaths fell by 23% from 1990-94 among children under 15 years of age
(it also cut down on suicides)

I found the first study interesting as it has relevance to the school shootings. And it seems this law did in fact cut down on deaths of Children.

I think though the law needs to be more well known. I'm not sure how many people even know this law exists. And I don't think it is in every state. I may be wrong. But it wouldn't hurt to remind people of it.

And if they make such a law that holds the gun owner responsible, I think it should carry a somewhat stiff penalty so people will be more apt to take it seriously. That 65% number of the school shootings getting the guns from home is alarming. And if this was enacted and you could get people to take it seriously, like no playing around you will be held accountable. It very well may cut down on the number of school shootings and other shootings.

The government did not write the constitution to give rights to the people. The people wrote the constitution to limit the government's power.

I'm not sure what bearing quoting George Harrison has in either of these discussions other than being a canard, rather like sending troops to fight the Taliban with John Lennon's famous words "Give peace a chance"
