My wife and I are going to be attending The Gun Rights Policy Conference in Chicago September 22-23 co-hosted by the Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. I am looking for some wisdom from this forum to take with me to that conference. Intelligent solutions are always complex and never easy. For example: What steps, if any, should be taken to assure that the mentally ill not have access to arms? Is there a way to do that without trampling on 2nd, 4th, and 5th amendment rights? It is not enough to fight what is going on with easy answers - what we really need are intelligent solutions. Does anyone have any suggestions on how we can turn public opinion around regarding gun ownership and the carrying of guns for defense?
