    What you’re ignoring is that this problem simply does not exist in other countries. This is a uniquely American issue.

    Sure, people will always kill others. Like was pointed out, they could even use a spork to get it done. But, a spork will not mow down 50 people in a matter of seconds. Only a gun can accomplish that.

    Like foggy said, the ball is in the gun advocates court. You can either push your elected leaders to make some meaningful changes, or it will be done for you by the anti-gun crowd (which is an ever growing majority). I have a hunch that you would not like the result of those changes...

    Criminals don’t obey any laws. So we should just say fuck it and have a free for all?

    People don’t obey speed limits, or stop at red lights either. Should we just scrap all traffic laws that save lives because a certain percentage of people don’t follow those laws?

    As was mentioned earlier, you probably wouldn’t like the changes made if it were left up to someone like me...

    Personally I’d support something similar to what Australia did, but that’s not likely to happen, so I’d settle for *some* of the following:

    Eliminate high capacity weapons. There is no need for a gun to have the ability to fire 10+ bullets at a time. If you can’t kill a deer or disable a “bad guy” in less than 10 shots, then you shouldn’t own a gun. There should be universal background checks on EVERY gun sale. I’d also like to see a registry. Every gun purchased has a unique serial number, and that gets recorded in a nationwide database. There should also be limits on how many guns an individual/household can own. There is no need for one person to own dozens of guns. Gun collector? Find a new hobby. Your pastime is less important than someone’s life.

    I’d support mandatory storage laws as well, with extremely stiff penalties if your gun is not properly stored while not being used, or is stolen. If your gun is used in the commission of a crime by the person who stole it, you face the same charges as the person who committed the crime. Maybe that would incentivize people to properly store their weapons.

    I’m sure some of that seems looney tunes to you, but something needs to be done. I’ve never owned a gun, but I’ve always said that I supported people’s right to own them...I’m really starting to reconsider that position.

    I agree with everything except the limits to the amount you can own, seems kinda pointless.

    Most of these lunatics have loads of guns with them but rarely use more than one or two anyway.

    Commonwealth countries.

    Canada still sort of belongs to the British Queen so based alot on the British system and evolved from there.

    That's because it's recorded into the blockchain when mined.

    Stay in lane and stfu, you don't know anything about Bitcoin or cryptograpy.

    How is it relevant though?

    There weren't millions of unaccounted Bitcoin at the start. A blockchain is a distributed public ledger by its nature so theres also no privacy whatsoever.
