martin64 Knee-jerk responses are intended to make people feel safe when in reality there is NO evidence this will result in any change in people who are mentally unstable causing damage. We don't check to see if people have DUIs on their record when they buy a car and if we did there is the potential they would borrow or steal one. We are ALL more likely to be involved in a fatal accident with an intoxicated driver than we ever will be with a firearm, regardless of how it was obtained!
