probably not the most unbiased place to ask but.....Are you for or against stricter laws on the possession of a firearm?

Gun control in small moderation, to prevent at least certified crazy people and criminals from commercially buying weapons.

But extreme gun control is retarded. Those people must be the dumbest people on earth. If guns are ever totally banned, the only people left with guns are criminals!

I am for certain limitations. you'd have to give me a list of different aspects of control, and i'd point out which ones you can shove.

Gun control is good for the most part they could be more strict in some areas, but the outright banning of some guns is just lame...

I wouldn't mind have a semi auto AK47, I think it would be rather enjoyable to shoot paper targets with.

My dad has a bumper sticker with a quote from Hitler on it about how gun control will make Germany have the best police and stuff. Like Enos said, minimal control is good, but anything beyond basic checks and stuff is insane.

According to my dad, a National Gun Registry would be one step from confiscation. Dunno how true that is, just stating his thoughts.
Is God real? You'll find out when you die.

Okay, I don't have a clever signature zinger. So sue me.

1. Registration
2. Minimum Purchasing Age
3. Required course to get a license, really low age requirement like 12.

I don't think that's extremely unreasonable.

Yet guns aren't the leading cause of death. Perhaps we should have "cigarette control" instead...

Not unreasonable at all.

In Cali you have to take a written test and get a Handgun safety certificate just to purchase a handgun, and you must demonstrate how to operate such a firearm.

Pretty good idea too and it doesn't bother me in the slightest.

gun control is a must, people should be able to hit what they shoot at. if not things get broke and random people get hit...

I would be all for "ciggarette control" as well. My Grandpa died from Lung Cancer. I just find it hard, especially living near a city like Detroit where some many innocent lives are taken because of material possessions by firearms and other weapons. I know that the United has one of the highest death tolls compared to other countries with stricter firearm laws. Thats just how i feel though, i've never been much a hunter. Feel to much compassion for the animal.
