Just because you think guns are icky and would never own one does not give you the right to prevent me from owning one.

First and foremost, you are making statements that are not supported by anything I have said. I do not find guns "icky" nor have I said I would never own one. As I originally stated, I am a FOID card holder and do go shooting. While I do not presently own a gun, I may in the future.

Also, I am not trying to prevent anyone from owning one--unless they are deemed unfit to do so. It is this latter part that I am spit-balling ideas on how this country can address in the hopes that lives of innocent people can be spared.

Lastly, thank you for sharing that database. I was not aware that the number was that high, although the database only lists ~1500 incidents over the last 3 years yet there are 500k to 3M per year.
