What, which two choices? What could possibly go wrong, with the Texan gun policy at least?
The Texan gun policy allows for criminals to procure guns because of a lax regulation in the control of domestic arms deals. It may not be intentional, but you know it and I know it. Criminals can procure guns even in the state of Texas.
So what can Texas do abot it you mean, Roger?
Texas is my suggested regulations perfect trial market.
Why should Texas let a foreigner dictate any regulations in the US, let alone in Texas?
The United States has two options in the future. Either they regulate their domestic arms market, or they are going to succumb to an increasing crime spree.
Texans do not want to surrender their guns!
Of course not, I am not suggesting that they should. I am suggesting only that the state increase their control of who owns which guns in order to make it possible to trace an individual gun. I am suggesting that the state of Texas simultaneously should clean up the black market for guns and disarm the criminals.
Sure Roger, but an increased control would mean a decrease in the individual’s liberties, which is un-American.
Then I think that you have a choice to make. Either you succumb to uncontrolled criminality, or you as an individual subordinate to stricter control of who owns a gun. These are the two bad choices you have, there are no other available choices.
Except, it would take decades to clean up the illegal gun market, Roger.
A law-biding citizen may still be allowed to own guns if you choose the second option above, subordination to a stricter gun control. The right to wear arms is in the American constitution.
Two bad choices, but you have to choose one of them. You can experience something like the movie ”The Escape from New York”. Woul’d you like that? No?
Or You can experience a tighter control of the peoples’ liberties. It is unpleasent, but you won’t die because of it, and neither will your loved ones. But you woul’d once again feel safe in America.
This is what I want for my country! The right for law-biding people to own and wear arms under controlled and relatively safe forms. I would also want people in my country to be licensed and educated and with safety regulations for storing guns in their house. They should lock in their guns in gun lockers for the night and keep the keys safe from children. Rights under responsibility! It’s my motto. For us Swedes this would be a big step towards greater liberties.
