    True but I bet you there are a ton of stories that don't get told/reported where someone defended themselves with a firearm and never fired a shot.

    No, as long as the process does not impede the right of non-criminal, non-insane people to defend themselves. Must be ever-vigilant about that.

    So making the process more difficult for criminals and insane folks to acquire firearms would help those folks defend themselves, correct?

    Slippery slope. In the next step, black police helicopters descend and take all of your guns and Obama becomes the next dictator of a socialist/communist UN state.

    People who engage in criminal violence and people who are mentally incompetent should not be able to use any weapons. That is the ideal. These people should not be able to vote, either. Whether or not a particular added law furthers this ideal is another question, one that should be carefully considered before going off "halfcocked".

    So you support better gun registrations and closing gun show loop holes?

    How the Washington Metropolitan Police Department treats you if you're not an Obama shill. I wonder if the NAACP took up for this brother.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...david-gregory/

    On Sept. 8, Mr. Brinkley says he intended to drop his wife and young children at the White House for a tour and then head to a shooting range to practice for the U.S. Marshals Service test. Just like Mr. Gregory, Mr. Brinkley called MPD in advance for guidance on how he could do this legally. Mr. Brinkley was told that the gun had to be unloaded and locked in the trunk, and he couldn’t park the car and walk around.

    Unlike Mr. Gregory, Mr. Brinkley followed the police orders by placing his Glock 22 in a box with a big padlock in the trunk of his Dodge Charger. The two ordinary, 15-round magazines were not in the gun, and he did not have any ammunition with him.

    As he was dropping off his family at 11 a.m. on the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue, Mr. Brinkley stopped to ask a Secret Service officer whether his wife could take the baby’s car seat into the White House. The officer saw Mr. Brinkley had an empty holster, which kicked off a traffic stop that ended in a search of the Charger’s trunk. Mr. Brinkley was booked on two counts of “high capacity” magazine possession (these are ordinary magazines nearly everywhere else in the country) and one count of possessing an unregistered gun.

    Despite the evidence Mr. Brinkley had been legally transporting the gun, his attorney Richard Gardiner said the D.C. Office of the Attorney General “wouldn’t drop it.” This is the same office now showing apparent reluctance to charge Mr. Gregory.

    Mr. Brinkley refused to take a plea bargain and admit guilt, so the matter went to trial Dec. 4. The judge sided with Mr. Brinkley, saying he had met the burden of proof that he was legally transporting. Mr. Brinkley was found not guilty on all firearms-related charges, including for the “high-capacity” magazines, and he was left with a $50 traffic ticket.

    Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told The Washington Times, “We feel it was a valid arrest, and the appropriate charges were brought.” Moments later, a spokesman for the D.C. attorney general's office, Ted Gest, called and provided the exact same quote. Mr. Gest added that, despite Mr. Brinkley’s acquittal, the ruling “doesn’t mean the judge is right, and we’re wrong.”

    Mr. Brinkley believes the “Meet the Press” anchor is receiving special treatment because of his high-profile job. “I’m an average person,” Mr. Brinkley said in an exclusive interview with The Washington Times. “There seems to be a law for us and a law for the upper echelon.”

    Dude skipped a tour of the White House with his family to hit the shooting range? Priorities I guess.

    Typical arbitrary governmentpeople abuse of innocent citizens with power given to them by stupid laws. If you are their buddy, they look the other way.

    Have you seen the new "demand a plan" PSA by all the Hollywood special people? If you are not a gun control nut, you should watch this. Its pretty funny:

    I would be shocked if we don't have more gun violence than all the rest of the G8 combined.

    But we should let anyone with money buy guns at gun shows.
    But we should let anyone with money buy a gun from anyone who has one without any background checks.
    But we should allow magazines, clips and drums which are created to kill people.
    But we should allow every kind of gun that can be easily turned into fully automatic be sold to anyone who can buy a gun.
    But we should allow anyone with cash to buy as many guns as he can pay for or buy on credit.
    But we should allow full on army sniper rifles (.50 caliber) be bought by anyone. After all if al qeada and the drug cartels want them, they should have them.

    But we should let rich actorpeople make gobs of money glorifying gun violence to young lunatics and then flap their lips about gun control plans.

    Making money on movies with guns is bad. Making money from guns is good. Got it.

    I have to register my dog with the county, I have to register my car with the county..hell my PS3 has an identifying number...why is this even a question? Cigarettes, liquor, beer, and cough syrup have ID requirements. Why is that requirement unacceptable for f'ing guns.
