¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 “American Obsession” with guns (and punishment) is deeply “cultural” and can’t be quickly “fixed”. I offer the following as but part of a longterm and comprehensive strategy. However, it may be a template for some states to initiate and experimentally tune.
Weapons/Owners/Users = Vehicles/Owners/Drivers
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Well tuned sets of regulations and licensing processes exist for vehicles (cars, trucks, buses, boats, aircraft,etc.), their owners and users. These are a mix of international, federal, state, and local. They appear well integrated and have general public acceptance and adherence. The dangers of unregulated vehicle use is an accepted truth. That some individuals chose to violate these regulations doesn’t effect their general acceptance.
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 To regulate dangerous weapons, as we regulate dangerous vehicles, is a viable strategy. As drivers and vehicles are tuned to their regulations, so owners/users and weapons can be so tuned, and not to violate legitimate possession and use of weapons. This strategy would be consistent with the “2nd Amendment”, in any legitimate interpretation.
¶ 5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 The current laws and lack of regulation for weapons and their uses are strongly backed by those who profit from their sales, and who propagandize the owners and users of weapons.
¶ 7 Leave a comment on paragraph 7 0 I offer this idea. How might it be inserted in the media, and even assisted in going viral? It provides a new perspective to a highly emotional, yet very significant issue.
