Maybe in a different situation but not in a cinema where there was children, poor lighting and smoke bombs going off...

In an ideal world I would ban all guns for civilians

However that is not realistic

I think to change American gun laws in America it would take a generation. First you would have to come up with a system for a gun ownership licence say give 5-10 years for everyone to get a licence for hunting rifles and shot guns make it more difficult to get a licence to sell a gun and so on. It would also be necessary to ban the sale of particular fire arms such as hand guns and anything used other than for game keeping.

Then you would have to start collecting the old guns that is the most difficult part how you get all the guns back. That would be very difficult, it would probably require a gun amnesty that would allow everyone to hand in all there unlicensed weapons. In addition to this there would have to be massive operations by law enforcement to reclaim weapon stashes kept by armed criminals. Although it would never be permissible to enter into a private residence to forcibly “take their guns” rather there would have to be a certain amount of trust in the public and a acceptance that they could never get all the guns. However by banning the sale of ammunition and people carrying guns in public. It would probably take several generations before guns in a person’s home became less common.

One of the biggest problems would be changing attitudes, even with mass shootings people in America still defend the guns for everyone ethos. Just read any thread that calls for a ban on guns. That is something that would be almost impossible to do, it would take generations and require a radical change in the American psyche with education and very tough sentences on people found with illegal weapons.

In reality however, guns will always be easy to buy and shoot innocent people with in America and we should just all accept it.

Such ridiculous doublespeak crap.

On one hand we're all redneck rambo's and on the other you just want to save this "great country".

You'd make a wonderful politician. Know when to mock'em, know when to praise'em all to get to the end you want.

You make it sound as if more guns would be the problem. Statistics show just the opposite. City's here that have banned guns have a much higher crime and murder rate.

Let everyone open carry, obviously minus people who have been convicted of violent crimes or weapon-related crimes.
If you take away the guns, people intent on committing crimes will find other weapons to use. Personally, I'd rather be shot than stabbed or beaten on the head with some blunt object. If this guy who did the Colorado shootings didn't have access to guns, he could have very well thrown some homemade grenades into the audience. I don't think banning guns will really accomplish anything...
But, on the other hand, if half the public was carrying a weapon, I'm willing to bet the crime rate would drop overnight.
When you know people are carrying guns, it's 1. a deterrent, and 2. possible prevention of a crime successfully taking place.
I wish people had much more freedom to defend themselves. If I'd change anything, I'd make the current laws LESS restrictive. Someone threatens you? Blow their head off. Society improves overnight.

Everybody would be permitted to open carry at all times and in all circumstances. On airplanes, passengers would be required to load frangible ammunition.


Wow!

You do reilase that would just create a blood bath, the population of America would probably be reduced by half within 10 years, you would probably all descend into civil war.

Under your idea hundreds of thousands of people would end up dead.

Your ignorance of American ideals and beliefs is very evident. You should do some actual research and stop buying into the "John Wayne" theory put forth in the media. You insult Americans and yourself with your ignorance.

I sleep better at night knowing criminals might think twice before crossing the threshold of my house because they might take a shotgun slug to the chest.

So lets take the guns away from the non criminals so the criminals know they have the upper hand.

Ummm yeah everything he said was ignorant:

1) The population of the US would be reduced by half in ten years. Do you really think that is possible?

2) The country would descend into civil war. Again really?

3) Hundreds of thousands would end up dead. He just contradicted his earlier statement that "half" the pop would be gone. By this math the population of the US is at best a million?

Cancel many,enforce the remaining few.We don't have a "toe the line" peer based culture. America grew up without a caste system,so I could never convince anyone who had such a mind set who we are,You just can't understand it.We have to invent ourselves in all things we do.We take chaos had bend it to our choices as best we can by our decisions.The enormity of such a burden can cause some to crack,which is,at a guess,possibly what happened here.You could say media needs to be banned as he sought to emulate a villian from a violent genre.
The many Americans know this man to be an aberration and nothing more.We need not change our selves to adjust to crazy people.We need to stop people from becoming crazy and help them when they do,and stop giving people medications that cause such psychotic acts.OP you KNOW what happens when tyrants rule.No tyrant on the planet could take the US because of civilian armament.Your own country asked for American guns so you could defend yourselves in a time of crisis, now because of a few bad people out of millions we need to surrender ourselves to the tender mercies of our government,NATO or the UN?
