Gun Control

If you watch the news, any news one of the things they are talking about right now is Gun Control. What gun control should be in place, what new laws should be passed, what should be done to keep the guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them...ect.

I actually don't have a problem with any of the new laws they want to pass. I know that a lot of people do, but I'm not one of them. I don't have a problem limiting the amount of bullets a magazine can carry. Is there really any reason for a person to have such large magazines?

I don't have a problem requiring doctors to let police officials know if one of their patients is making a threat against himself or others, if they think they might use a gun to hurt someone. I'm actually surprised that isn't already something doctors aren't required to do. I mean if I go see my doctor and tell them I am thinking of shooting my entire family..I probably won't do it but I have a gun or have access to a gun and could do it.....I think that doctor has an obligation to tell the police so if something does happen they have some information about the person. I don't see this as a bad thing.

But then all the conspiracy theorists are going to jump all over any new gun laws being passed and saw that our rights are being taken away. it's just not true...we will still have the right to bear arms and still have hand guns to take care of any nuts that break into our homes. But we don't want the nuts having the guns...that has to be stopped.
