A Compromise Gun Control Bill I Can Live With

Posted on: January 3rd, 2013

Covering for Glenn Beck the other day, Doc Thompson talked about the possibility of the GOP selling out on gun rights. He posted an e-mail exchange in which a high-level Congresscritter’s staffer said (in part):

So we’re going to stand up for our principles, but I don’t necessarily think that means refusing to do anything…This is just my hunch as a political hack, but I would guess there would be bipartisan, bicameral, in Congress for a bill addressing high-capacity magazines, mental health, enforcement of existing law, and making some tweaks to background check laws.

Normally I’m loathe to offer Leviathan any help whatsoever. But in this case, I believe we should propose our own gun control bill. Here’s my modest proposal . .

Repeal the Brady Bill and do away with the NICS system entirely. It was supposed to keep felons from getting firearms but has failed miserably. The solution isn’t to “tweak” the cumbersome and expensive background check process. The answer is to get rid of it entirely.

    This Gun Control Bill should be put into a legal format and submitted to state legislatures and county sheriffs. Put a uniform name on it so that when someone enters a state or county that upholds these conditions, there will be a sign at the state/county line that says, You are entering a 2nd Amendment Freedom County/State. Maybe a Thanks for visiting our 2nd Amendment Freedom County/State sign on the backside.

      The government has been infringeing on the peoples rights in other areas and I am sick and tired of it. People need to learn what the deffinition of Liberty really means..

    I like Vermonts Idea “all citizens should own and be trained in teh use of a gun ofsome type or pay a $500.00 fine for teh first offense and State Registration. No more criminal safety behind gun control.
    Gun Control is not about guns its about CONTROL.
