I fully support taking any reasonable measures to protect each other
Any gun control 'bill' or law is unreasonable.
Simply because we already have a preexisting law that says we can't murder each other.
Since that LAW is already being broken I missed the part where further law to the tune of thousands is 'reasonable'.
All laws do not prevent 'crime' they only punish after the fact.

Using divisiveness, fear, paranoia.
Perfect ingredients for a progressive agenda!

This type of talk is only ongoing because people like Feinstein dont have a clue how to build a viable system which accurately qualifies citizens to own firearms. They've destroyed the minds of millions of people (soldiers) and can't keep track of the millions on SSRIs/SNRIs/opiates due to doctors shoveling out big pharmas mind-altering poison instead of trying to actually rid people of mental illness, so what they try to do is scare the hell out of everyone that does NOT own a firearm.
Its completely lazy, 100% transparent and guaranteed to fail as long as people know the facts.

And what makes you think I said none of "you" did not already vigorously petitioning your elected representatives?
And is it really my sentence that brought you out of the bush or you thinking I am a "gun-hater"?

This is how I think gun ownership is being reduced.
"My cousin went to see the doctor for a rash and was randomly asked how he felt about gun ownership..
I agree the system could use some changes but I don't believe that public safety is the agenda, at least not entirely. There are multiple agendas at play."
The doctors are being increasingly feeling pressure to make these type inquires. Remember that anything you say to a doctor is liable to end up in some federal database. They've done away with anything resembling doctor/patient privacy. Also remember, your under no obligation to provide any information about what I call "off topic" questions. Furthermore, if you find yourself being pressured, remember you're under no obligation to be truthful. With the Federalization of medical care, the doctors are now operating as members of the State run medical system.
To be realistic? If police show up to my door with a proper order to take my guns...well, they are going to take my guns. I have absolutely no say in the matter at that point

I agree it does suggest a direction towards a snitch type state. But neighbors snitch on each other all the time. From loud music to tall trees and hedges and parking for example. But firearms are much more serious than anything I just mentioned.
Wasn't a German exchange student killed by a neighbor for walking through his yard? I think if the neighborhood disapproved of this man prior to the shooting, the death could have been avoided if this new law was in place?
There can be numerous neighborhoods that are safe but contain the one wacko that has a clean record, that the neighborhood is clearly afraid of. I don't see a problem with making things safer.
