A medium term cure...NRA leads the culture...
Authored by: Anonymous on Monday, December 24 2012 @ 11:54 PM EST
By the way, I am 4 times more likely to die in my car than by a bullet...where is the outrage about all the car killings?
If you think the gun lobby is bad try and take away someones car.
At least with cars there is a test involved to drive one, plenty of restrictions on where to operate one and what is street legal. With trees, lampposts bollards, parked vehicles, curbs, walls... there are many places to escape from a car and it's pretty hard to hide a car under your coat.

A medium term cure...NRA leads the culture...

It is far to easy to walk into my local walmart, speak to noone, and buy both my weapon and some ammunition without speaking a word to anyone. Please, make that work differently, so my nutty nephew has to talk to the clerk before he purchases anything. And give that clerk the power to say no, my nephew is a nut and not do the sale, or make it on layaway only.

well, no.

Actually, Walmart is required by law to do an Instant Background Check on you if you want to buy a gun. Just like every other gun dealer in the country.

Plus there's the whole "the guns are locked up and require a clerk to unlock the case so you can buy one."

And the "you have to pull out a credit card or cash and hand it to a clerk, just like any other purchase" thing.

I find it interesting that you'd let a minimum-wage clerk at Walmart have a veto on your Constitutional rights - does that apply to things you post on Groklaw too?

4 times more likely?

Not by the CDC you aren't. But all statistics are subject to misinterpretation, and these are no exception.

Of course, the latter link also asserts (without support) that firearm suicides would end up suicides anyway, which itself is open to (considerable) debate. Caveat Emptor.
