In my opinion, It's not the type of weapon that should be scrutinized, it's the type of person. If firearms are taken from the mentally ill, what about the individuals who refuse to take meds to keep their rights?...That's dangerous.
Legal gun ownership and operation should be considered more of a RESPONSIBILITY rather than just simply a right. As an automobile owner, it is my responsibility to take appropriate precautions to prevent my car from being taken and used to commit a crime. Likewise it should be for guns.
Just for the record: I am not for banning guns. I am for sensible regulation that will help keep guns out of the wrong hands. I do not buy into the slippery slope argument that if we improve our background check databases and procedures or close the gun show loopholes or hold legal gun holders responsible when their guns are lost or stolen that the end result is necessarily an elimination of our gun rights.
You know, it never ceases to amaze me that people make that observation but fail to recognize that OF COURSE gun control in one city or state wont work so long as we have inconsistent regulation in the surrounding cities and states. It only takes an extra second to realize this...and of course you do realize it (you must, you're not stupid, right?)...but you choose to ignore it to advance your own paranoid agenda.
There must be some mistake, Chicago has very strict gun laws so that is not possible! Now there may be some redneck militia type running around with an AK or AR in the suburbs but firearms are outlawed!
