Why not licence the guns? Every gun-nut in the USA made to pay a
stiff annual gun-licence fee to finance almost everything else.


Fine with me. The gun nuts will scream and stomp and threaten to hold
their breath until they turn blue. Remember, the NRA leaned on
congresscritters to the extent that federal agencies scan't even
collect statistics on gun violence. That's how totally clse-minded
they are.

They do this for motor cars and other things besides.
For guns why not a sliding scale where the fee increases per gun for
each owned. And fingerprint and photograph the owners.


True. There's not even a requirement that a gun owner demonstrate that
he knows how to use (SAFELY use) the thing.


I wonder who many of those who are talking against guns and want gun
control,; have ever tried to buy a licensed gun, and gone through the
current back ground checks required for gun owner ship.

Odds are they only know what the media has told them.

That goes with the following in the US:

For 2016 specifically, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA) data shows 37,461 people were killed in 34,436 motor vehicle
crashes, an average of 102 per day.

How is that registration and licensing working out with the cars and trucks?

By the way, the whole thread is off topic.

I donít believe that almost all motor vehicle crashes killed someone.

trucks?

Yes, but most were not by accdent. With proper training in the use of
firearms many more would probably be killed instead of wounded.

I bet most were gang and drug related.

Murders by guns was only about 8 to 10 thousand a year. Many suicides
by handguns that should not be counted. Too many other ways to do that.


The interesting spin by the anti-gun crowd is guns are too effective as a
suicide tool. Better the person should use some other less reliable
method, fail, and have time to reflect. If they are not brain dead,
maimed, or otherwise seriously screwed up.


Rather silly given how reliable hanging yourself is.

A nightmare for someone jumping off a bridge would to wake up a
quadriplegic with no way out except time instead of the desired outcome.


I actually know someone who did that with a road
bridge, deliberately jumped in front of a truck and
ended up with very expensive and a real fluke of a
repair to his leg that was almost ****ed.

He hasnít actually tried doing it again because
that medical catastrophe fixed the medical
problem that caused him to try killing himself.
A weird balance problem.

Of course a seasoned warrior like Bo Gritz managed to miss killing himself
with a .45 while sitting in his pickup so there is still hope for
incompetence.

There is a requirement to take a driver's test and a renewal every few
years, but look at all the accidents and around 30,000 killed each year
by cars.

It is true that while a background check is often required (or in some
states a concealed weapon permit), there is no check for being able to
even know which end of the gun to point at someone. Probably no where
as meany deaths by accident.

I like graph #6 and graph #7 here.

Hardly a shocking revelation that countrys with more guns have more gun
deaths.

Some suspicious omissions tho, particularly the USA and Israel.
