While I really disagree with how many guns are floating around and how easygoing people are about weapons like that, I can't as a Canadian under canadian law dictate how americans should feel about their law and agree with you fully there.
The only opinion I offer is, if they allowed guns to be had by all in the first place and are now seeing how it affects crime etc, why aren't they wasting time on this. I think existing gun laws need to be addressed seriously, instead of trivial things like how much they have and making some elaborate law to govern it.

As a canadian I say, I dont like your guns but I like that you exercise your rights according to law. Whether I agree with the overall concept shouldn't be thrown into the debate like some. Come to canada! But leave the guns at home

Finally, a Canadian gets it.
Here is the kicker. Take the "Assault Weapons Ban" (Crap from start to finish). It has bans on importation of foreign manufactured firearms for sale in the US. Canada has no such ban. So, in alot of cases, your laws are not as strict as our.

But, all that aside. Gun crime, as a whole, is committed by people who are not legal owners of firearms. Gun laws only control the willing and those that don't want to be criminals.
I do agree, that current laws, if enforced would take care of most of the problems. New laws are not needed. They only serve to keep politicians looking busy and to strip the rights away from lawful/legal owners.

Just for S's and G's, go do a check of the violent crimes committed in Kennesaw GA, as compared to surrounding cities/towns.

I will wait for your reply in what you have found.

Is this another law trying to force us into a contract with some corporation? We have the right to own weapons, but if you exercise that right you must install & maintain home security installations with centralised monitoring that comes with installations cost & monthly fees?

Seems to be.
Is Honeywell or GE involved?

Who has the brainpower/time to research if any major companies have HQs in this state?

I just re-read the second part posted by the OP.
So they not only want to restrict owners, but want to create new departments within the LEA to be involved?

Why are more people not going crazy over crap like this?

Get out much? I live in Canada and I have several guns... all legal... and I know lots of people who own guns, for hunting and competition.

What about LIVE AND LET LIVE? Most Canadians need a reality check and learn what FREEDOM means.

I'm mad as hell...
think this is just another intrusion of big brother into our personals lives...
but you saw the reaction I got... Apparently I'm just another gun nut rather than a responsible law abiding citizen????

This law, as so many short sighted ideas do, will lead to a flourishing black market for weapons that go bang. People will merely go under the table. Not that I would ever do that, oh no, not me... uh-uh... nope. Strictly law abiding, that's me.

Yep, as we are all just knuckle dragging savage cowards.
I am truly worried at the state of people when the reaction to this is not "Why is the Govt doing this and how do they have the authority to does this".
Oh well. My friends and family are not like that, so there is hope.

Nice sig. by the way with 27 guns in the house I guess you don't need too much protection

The key is to have at least 4 people there to wield them...you know cover entrances and at least the front and back of the house

freedom - you can own guns, or not own guns. You can agree with guns, or disagree with guns. I AM expressing my freedom.

Yes you are, by agreeing with a law that restricts the rights of others.

Gotta love it.

not once did i state in this entire thread that I agreed or disagreed with the law. What I have been saying is that (in my eyes) owning more than 10 guns is preposterous and unnecessary.

I'd rather see the money people are spending on their fear/little D@&K syndrome go towards people that are suffering NOW. instead of buying your 11th gun. donate that money to those that need it.

I would rather see lefties stop trying to dictate to people how to spend the little money the governments let us keep. If you want to throw away your money, that is your business. Some of us would rather invest our money in useful tools, without being held to retarded unconstitutional conditions.
