What kind of crap is this???
“Congress should pass a law forthwith requiring every gun buyer to declare whether or not he intends to commit a crime with the gun.” The absolute epitome of leftist airhead Magic Thinking! ... And the scary thing is these fools vote and believe their magic!
Right over their heads.
In Hong Kong if you own a weapon you do have to keep it at the police station. You may only shot it in a firing rang and have to account for every spent cartridge.
This modest proposal smacks of the UK and the restrictions placed on legitimate firearms license holders. “Modest” proposal it is not because it equates legal firearms owners as criminals (or worse).
Wait a minute, that's not fair. If a fellow is honest enough to state that he intends to commit a crime with the gun, shouldn't the government be reinforcing that sort of honesty? I mean, you get the behavior you reward, right? So a hearty, "sure, I mean to knock off the corner liquor store" ought to be rewarded with, oh, I don't know, a box of ammo or a high-capacity ammo clip magazine thingy. Decent civic behavior is important, and if we're going to raise a generation of honest citizens I don't see the point in penalizing anyone for telling the truth.
A lame attempt at satire, since the gun grabbers would be thrilled by this proposal.
Three people have been killed and at least 11 wounded in acts of violence throughout the city since Friday, police said.
