    while reading this article today: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/201...more-controversial-than-others/#ixzz2Hlo5qyCa

    it got me thinking (dangerous, i know..) how much are we willing to accept? I for one, would like to see tighter control on gun sales to keep them out of the hands of people that shouldnt own them. but who makes the decision on who can and cant? if i get diagnosed with PTSD(im active duty) is someone going to make the call that im dangerous? what if i go on antidepressants? what if i just start talking to a shrink because i need someone to talk to?

    at what point do i stop letting them invade my personal life?

    where do we draw the line? id love it if another gun never fell into the wrong hand again and id love to see harsher punishments for anyone committing a crime with a gun

    but where do we draw the line? where do we start pushing back? this is a real possibility right now as were facing a possible executive order.

    when its time to bury them, its time to dig them up.....

    What am I willing to accept? Repeal of NFA'34 and GCA '68. That would render the other questions moot.

    Beyond that, not one single thing.

    +1000 ...Just what Sam1911 said above. We have already "comprimised" too much.

    I'm willing to accept apologies for creating "gun free zones" on public property and removing them immediately. Other than that, I think any concessions would be a HUGE mistake in that not only would violent crime increase, but the constitution would have effectively been ignored again.

    What compromise? What has the anti-gun movement ever given up?

    Laws and regulations will do little to keep weapons (let's not limit the discussion to only firearms here) out of the hands of those who are willing or even anxious to do harm to others while doing much to keep weapons out of the hands of those who will never use them against another living creature except in legitimate self-defense.

    We must challenge ourselves and each other to think and act as if these fiercest and most treacherous of foes have put our Liberty -our very lives- in peril.

    The time for apathy and appeasement must end and the time for serious change must start.

    During Hitler's rise to power France and England beieved compromise was the best way to avoid war with Germany. It sounds like you are falling victim to the same type of thinking.

    Nothing that takes away from arming the general population against the crazies, and everything that promotes it. Being armed for self-defense is the only effective measure--just ask the police and Obama's security detail.

    I'd be fine with a complete reworking of federal gun control laws to change the stance from anti-gun to improvement in marksmanship and safety. Not that it's going to happen, but if we WERE proceeding as we were supposed to, the feds would be helping us build ranges and buy everyone a safe instead of trying to throw us in prison for decades because of a .1" variation on a barrel or a malfunctioning firing pin.

    The real place to start is to restore trust, and that will not happen so long as the current legal framework is taken apart, the BATFE disbanded forever and they stop treating us like presumptive criminals. I think there is room for federal gun laws, but ones designed to encourage and improve marksmanship or provide surplus arms to citizens.

    no but i think drug addicts shouldnt own guns or people with violent felonies on the record. but i dont think any law abiding person should be limited. i think we can all agree that someone who is going to kill someone else shouldnt be allowed to own a gun. but how do we make that determination? we cant....

    Exactly, they give up nothing. Every single "compromise" is a defeat for America and a victory for the socialists who wish to "fundamentally change America" (their own stunning admission that few seem to comprehend). The more guns we have, the safer we all are from the lunatics among us, as well as tyranny from the lunatics in our increasingly socialistic government. Fewer guns is not a solution for anything, unless we want to enable mass-murderers and tyranny.

    illegal drug users and people with felonies are already barred from legally buying a gun.....and murder is already illegal.

    you can pass all the laws you want, it wont stop people from killing each other......and it still wont stop a criminal from buying a gun.

    you mean to tell me someone who knows how to score smack cant also find a guy to sell him a gun?
