Gun Advice

Do not say "Gun Controls".

Say "Responsible Gun Ownership"

Make the distinction between responsible gun ownership and irresponsible, and let it sink into the skulls of the numb.

I mean, no one wants "irresponsible" gun ownership. At that point, a "rational" system may begin to be devised.

Note:   I have emphasized "rational" because there are very few regulatory systems that can actually be characterized as "rational".

You know what I mean. At a certain point, the government gets to charge fees and taxes and set up guidelines... sort of like motorcycle helmet laws, which here in Michigan change every 5 years or so....

Here in Michigan, the concept of "rationality" is sometimes cyclical, sometimes counter-cyclical. Sometimes it disappears altogether... like the enormous number of "Four Corners" across the state where there are absolutely no signs with street names on.
