    As far as gun control proposals go, this is WAY out there:

    This is priceless:
    Then what makes you think they won't also obtain ammunition illegally?

    I disagree with this. The Constitution doesn't mention having anyone decide who is fit to exercise their inherent rights.

    Will my HMO cover my ammo?

    Doctors kill more people than "gun violence" each year. They are in no position to talk.

    Lemme see...

    Are there generic substitutes?
    What's the copay for brand name cartridges like Federal?
    Do they do 90 day supplies by mail order?
    How much ammo constitutes a 90 day supply?
    What about FDA approval?
    Will they start selling ammo at Walgreen's?

    makes as much since as the idiot that was wanting to put diapers on animals a few decades ago. The world is full of fools if some one will give them attention.

    Odd that people think they can legislate themselves into safety. After paying huge taxes for law enforcement and law creation we are still no safer from someone who decides to break these laws. I fail to see why people still believe there is some undiscovered magical law that will prevent all crime.

    Instead of spending more money on more laws, and driving up the debt with more supposed "enforcement" agencies, how about:
    1. Cutting government bureaucracy/out of control spending.
    2. Enjoying life as free men/women, but being willing and able to defend that life rather then spend billions of dollars just so you can ask the crook to hold on for 10-20 minutes so you can dial the police, give them directions and explain the situation, then wait for them to show up to save the day.

    Up here in Canada if you're a law-abiding citizen that has never broken the law, yet you arm yourself so that there is a chance you might live when attacked, you are breaking the law and will be thrown in jail.

    We have a case in the courts right now where a man refused to give pan-handlers money, so they stabbed him to death. Now the superior courts just overturned the remand order and granted low bail to one of the attackers "because time in solitary confinement for the killer would be difficult." Wow, how hard a time is it for the victim WHO IS DEAD ?!

    Please don't let yourselves in the U.S. get as looney and government-controlled as we are in canada...

    Regulating Xanax, Vicodin, Percocets, Oxycodones, and the rest has really slowed down the people from still using them illegally... :rolleyes:

    I strongly believe that this is what is coming at some point. A NICS check everytime you buy ammunition. Ammunition/primers/powder could only be purchased through an FFL. Of course, that means no mail order ammunition, and a NICS fee everytime you go to your local gun store for ammo. But since 65% of the folks in these forums see nothing wrong with background checks, they won't mind doing one for ammo, too.

    We could expect prices to skyrocket if that happens.

    Bah, this is just a silly attempt to get his 15 minutes by proposing something suggesting that his profession is somehow the be-all, end-all of solving the world's maladies. He's getting exactly what he wants, his name and his silly idea passed around.

    ...and obtaining drugs by prescription has completely erradicated illegal drug use, right? :rolleyes: Looks like the good doc has been taken some of his own medicine... :scrutiny:

    Merciless mocking on the internet?

    You'd think that if he wanted that, he could have at least tried to top The Star Wars Kid.

    I don't even know where to begin with this one. I guess I could start by pointing out that anyone who tries to apply their professional experience directly to a completely unrelated issue is an arrogant bufoon.

    What he has done would be like me (an automotive technician) suggesting that people undergo an annual state inspection to be sure that they are fit to be on our streets, and those that fail must recieve surgery to correct the problem.

    I don't know why some people think you can apply the same solution to every problem.

    I believe the name "David Work" should become as famous as "Lee Paige". Two profound examples of profound idiocy.

    What the hell does ammunition have to do with medicine? This is definitely among the stupidest ideas I've ever heard.

    Make sure that people who buy bullets also have a gun out of which to shoot them. Can't have people just chucking 'em at each other, like they've been doing. :neener:
