My answer to the NRA's proposal to have armed guards at every school in America.
semi-automatic weapons need to be banned. The government should buy
them from people who already own them and then destroy them. Anyone who
is caught with one of these weapons would receive a $10,000-$50,000 fine and an
automatic jail sentence, a long one.
All clips with multiple rounds
should also be banned and destroyed. This law needs to go into effect as soon a possible.
Concealed weapons should be illegal.
All other gun purchases must be done with a background check, this would
include Gun Shows. No one immediately buys a gun. There must be a
waiting period. No exceptions.
All guns must be registered on a national registry. This is retroactive. Anyone who has a gun that is not on the registry will face a fine and/or automatic jail sentence.
2. We need immediate funding for
health care for the mentally ill, we need care facilities for them and
not a jail cells. Schools need funding to provide additional
assistance for students with personality disorders or who are mental
health issues. Parents and families of someone who has either of these,
need a support system.
3. We need to take a serious look at the violence we are allowing on TV, in movies and video games.
I believe that this would be a very big start to ending the problem with guns in America. Semi-automatic weapons and clips with multiple rounds will be legal only for police and military.
The NRA needs to be stopped. No more guns and get rid of some of the millions we already have.
