I already did. But you either ignored it or more likely did not understand it.

Are you going to understand it better if I repost it?

Fun, I think most of your points are well taken and warrant serious consideration. But I think the two sides are scared shitless of losing ground in any well meaning effort to reduce gun related deaths and injury. It's the old slippery slope worry, especially for gun enthusiasts. But overwhelmingly Trumping any improvement is the very fact that there are 200,000,000 or more guns already in the hands of a gun loving public, most of who will never be willing to give them up without a serious fight - and for good reason. Ain't gunna happen.

Fred that is another complete lie and scam pushed by the Democrats. The deaths from opiods are from heroin laced with fentanol whcih is coming from China with the heroin coming across the border with Mexico.

I think that the scam is to limit the number of pain pills to such a low amount that people will all turn to medical marijuana for pain relief. Many will be so desperate for any kind of pain relief that they will demand pot become legal in their state.

Here in Nevada the sales of pot is making billions in taxes which is being used for the goverment union pension payments.

Its all about the taxes for the goverment, the SEIU and Democrats do not give a damn how much pain the people are in just get them using pot so they can cash in.

"But it doesn't take an expert to know that we have far more gun deaths in this country than any peer country, by far. Shouldn't we be trying to do whatever we can to change that? "

And it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that Americans have always had just as much unfettered access to guns as we do today. The semi automatic 'assault rifle' that no actual soldier of today would take into combat, has been in the hands of 10s of 1000s of Americans citizens since the end of WWII/ The problem is the culture has changed. That's the real issue. The majority of gun problems are in large urban centers. Nobody want to address the REAL issue. These mass shootings are rare and prompted by the sensationalized media coverage, but they really are very little of the number of gun crimes.

" We should develop an evidence-based list of things that should at least trigger more scrutiny before some people pass background checks for buying a gun"

What else can we do these people, deemed by some psuedo-science, to be unfit to own a gun. Can we put them on a no fly list? Ban them from owning knives? Stop them from voting?

"We have a hodgepodge of laws against certain convicted felons possessing guns."

Really? What felony conviction allows a person to legally purchase a gun?

The gun lobby has successfully discouraged statistical and analytical studies of gun violence at the national level. We should reverse that and fund research into the causes and incidence of gun violence just like we do for other public health concerns.

Well if the CDC hadn't become OVERTLY politicized, that wouldn't have been necessary. Statistics lie and liars use statistics.
