Thats why I say you should be punished if your gun ends up killing someone. And there should be some kind of limit too. I know people with 20, 30, 40 guns. WTF is that even for? This isnt a game and these arent toys.

    People should be held responsible for what their gun does. If its used for criminal activity. Then maybe people will only obtain them for the reasons they are for. Not just because they think they are cool and fun to play with. Im not over playing that either. Thats a big part of american culture. People adore them like they are fancy cars or something. I come across these types all the time.


    True and i would add that i own 2 guns and the last time i had any kind of gun safety training was when i was 14 years old. (im mid 30's now)

    Possibly, and that would be unfortunate

    I dont think there is a right or wrong answer really.

    KSL should just shut the whole website down. Why single out guns?

    Got this from their mobile app a while back.

    It's entirely possible that a transaction that shouldn't happen, could.

    If that is true then i think ksl did the right thing by stopping the POTENTIAL free for all of guns and money.
    Currently, private firearms transactions are legal in Utah. KSL is not the problem. People are the problem. When someone who shouldn't have a gun gets one, it is because someone else has acted negligently. But now everyone is in a panic, and want to stop the Titanic from sinking by painting the crown molding.

    KSL isn't taking some moral stand, they're just covering their own asses.

    Duh.

    Thanks for the info, i will be the first to admit that i dont know much at all about gun laws. (one of my guns was given to me by my father in law and the other was given to me by my dad when i was a kid)

    Nope, not photoshopped. Was a real ad. I figured it was probably a cop fishing for morons.

    So it sounds like we dont want it to be any harder for the "good guys" to be able to get guns, but i think we would all agree that we do want it to be more difficult for the "bad guys" to get them.

    So anybody have a good way to make this happen?
    Bronco, you seem to be pretty smart and know your gun laws... do you have any thoughts on how this could be achieved?

    How about, if you buy a gun you have to have it chained to your waist with a chain belt, permanently, and then fused to your backbone. Its not really unreasonable because guns are so important, nobody can live without them anyways.

    The bad guys are stealing them now. More laws that don't hinder the guys guys, aren't going to hinder the bad guys.

    If bad guys were legally buying guns, then tighter restrictions would probably reduce that. That isn't what's happening though. Bad guys are stealing guns, and will soon be making their own at home.

    How about if you don't want a gun, don't buy one. If you're worried about a bad guy shooting you, hire a personal bodyguard, or buy a gun.

    I keep hearing this. And yet... I don't see any proof of it.

    I don't see any proof that these "evil" people would have actually pushed through and obtained illegal weapons. We can always assume that they would have... Think Adam Lanza would have obtained the weapons he did had these weapons been either banned or strongly regulated? Would he have had those guns had his mom not owned them? I doubt it. He wouldn't have passed the exams necessary.

    We can always assume that the CO shooter would have and could have obtained those weapons. But perhaps with better regulation he would have tripped up along the way and been caught?

    Why not regulate (better) regulate these weapons? Why not make the process of purchasing these weapons much more comprehensive? What do you have to fear?
    Corbin sucks.
