A compelling argument for what? There have been plenty of good ideas talked about on this forum. Good comments from people who can think and care about the issue.
People would rather argue and insult each other than actually communicate. Even about who has more gold medals. LOL. Then Fuzzy comes on and insults me trying to get me to ice him ( it's a game he plays and he's good at games) and then says I insulted him first, lol, like making things up makes it true.
Tell me what law would prevent any of these type shootings. The problem isn't guns but the hands they fall into.
More people die every year in drunk driving accidents but yet you dont hear the outcry to ban alcohol. More people die every year from illegal drug overdose but yet you dont hear a cacophony of noise to make drugs illegal. Oh wait, they are illegal therefore they shouldn't be dieing.
I don't have a problem with the age being moved to 21, but that does not address the problem. People want to pass laws instead of enforcing existing laws. Shouldn't we be looking at stronger background checks.
Could technology be the solution? Imagine an app that?s only accessible to law enforcement that could shut down the firing pin of any non police gun within a range of a few miles during an event. Every new gun manufactured would require the chip in order to fire and older guns required to have the modification. Bullets could be modified not to load without recognizing a chip enabled gun. A futuristic dream but a great solution.
I'd settle for that protection system made for schools. At the sound of the first shot, school is in lockdown. Doors shut and lock automatically, a gas is released to disarm and confuse the shooter, leaving him essentially blind.
I agree TWE. Gun laws are a lost cause. Tho I still am in favor of raising the age to 21, common sense.
The truth is this is a lot like immigration. We have laws in place for years, but many were never enforced and now we have issues bc of that. With this issue, people in our community must play a part. Law enforcement must play a part and schools too. Just this week in Houston, 2 kids were taken into custody bc parents/citizens and schools worked together to ACT on threats of violence. It's step 1 and it WORKS. We can do mandatory jail time and expulsion for those making these threats. And parents can do a much better job of actually monitoring what their kids do on social media. Even limit their computer time all together since social media is worse than junk food anyway...
