    .....sounds great.....except for #1, 2,3,7,14


    if you want to come up with new gun laws, try first applying it to your other rights......if it sounds stupid for them, its equally as stupid for guns.

    sounds ridiculous....right

    also, #14, does that mean that veterans can vote to take away my rights?......is a veterans opinion somehow more important than anyone elses? did they gain certain rights over 'normal' people?

    Very idealistic, very broad strokes, very encroaching upon states' rights.

    And it ONLY seems like you are trying to sell your proposition by offering us some liberty in exchange for the security you asked for in the last thread.

    How does it violate states rights? It's already been established that states cannot violate the other rights, why should they be allowed to violate the second amendment?

    The Constitution has that effect when the states encroach on individual rights

    A LOT of this stuff interfere's with state's rights and centralizes WAAAYYYYY too much power with the federal government. I would not support many of these on that basis alone.

    Numbers 7 and 12 interfere with judiciary independence/discretion. That's a huge no-no.

    #11 just makes no sense whatsoever.

    I could probably stand behind you on maybe 3-5 of your proposals.

    Edit to add: And the more I think about it the more I doubt that I could really get behind those 3-5.

    Foolish. Failure. Please stop this nonsense.

    You're ideas lose appeal at bullet mark #1. Everything else is just compromise fodder, and it comes across as weak.

    Your ideas are based on the idea that if we give them a little, they will leave us alone.

    Well played sir. Well played indeed.

    And for my own state, I'll add CT Constitution Article 1 Section 15:

    Not much ambiguity there either.

    bushmaster1313,

    I realize that it is very difficult to accept that we are sometimes wrong, but aren't you just about getting to the point that you're ready to admit that this was not one of your better ideas?

    You are dealing hypothetical solutions and compromise to an issue that has not even entered debate in Congress. If and when back ground checks are proposed in a bill, you can write your representatives and make your suggestions if you do not like the answers provided by THR members.

    You lost me at the title with "reasonable" and "universal".

    I don't pretend to be super up to speed on this issue, but my understanding was that the US Postal Service doesn't ship ammunition because it is a potentially hazardous ORM-D material, not because they don't like gun owners.

    In general. No.

    In detail:

    1. No. Non-interstate transactions between private individuals are just that. Private, and not something for a national government to muck around with.

    2. No, per the above.

    3. No. That is a state/local issue.

    4. Perhaps. Though USPS tends to misplace half my mail in the best of circumstances.

    5. Ditto.

    6. No. Again, that is a state/local issue.

    7. No. Sentence discretion being sometimes a valuable thing.

    8. No. Again, a state/local issue/

    9. No. A state/local issue, and also not if it takes time from other curricula (which assuredly it would).

    10. No. That is once again a state/local issue. Though it would be nice if the US Dept of Ed included this as an encouraging factor in awarding improvement grants and other funding to schools (not just 2A, but a course on US govt and the constitution).

    11. No. Cute thought, but in the ever shifting court debates on the limits of the 2A, it would be near impossible to prosecute a bureaucrat for infringing 2A. However, maybe stiffer specific civil and criminal sanctions for any government personnel violating specific regulations on record keeping, FOPA provisions, etc.

    12. No. This is what the appellate process is for.

    13. Not sure.

    14. No. Absolutely not. Silly.

    Also, I know of quite a few folks in the the military who are very anti-2A (as far as civilians are concerned), and frankly not too clear on the whole concept of "democracy" in general. A very scary (additional) step towards a praetorian society.

    bushmaster1313,

    Well for starters you need to give your definition of “Universal.” Merriam-Webster defines it as including or covering all or a whole collectively or distributively without limit or exception. Based on Merriam-Webster definition you have no tolerance of anyone who disagrees with your views.
