It seems that there needs to be a focused effort on the Pro-2A organizations to put forth our own design of "common sense solutions" for gun violence that doesn't involve eroding our rights afforded to us by the Constitution and Bill of Rights. I know some of these solutions will start veering towards politics. Please keep in mind we are a Gun Forum and need to have our conversations center around Guns or else this thread will get closed in a hurry. I'm trying to strictly come up with areas that affect gun rights and hope we can stay on track.
