Re: [newtech-1] Startup/ThinkTank for Gun Control

attack guns are illegal, big clips are illegal on a national level
national gun ownership laws
put gun ownership information on your drivers license, have a yearly renewable license fee.
you can turn your guns in and get all your fees paid back for that particular gun or guns
tax bullets, make it cost real money to fire 500 bullets in an afternoon, tax them like cigarettes.

last but not least do not shop at any store which sells guns, period.

just my two cents and those of others.

In the midst of seemingly inadequate governmental oversight, I thought it made sense to reach out to some of brightest folks out there to start this.

We are too far along to get rid of guns altogether but how can we make it safer for everyone to just survive?

I would suggest forming a group to devise both engineering methods as well as public policy initiatives to get things in motion quickly to make guns and gun ownership something that can't result in atrocities that we have seen today. Banning assault rifles is NOT a clever solution.....

This is a call to action for lawyers, engineers, folks with money or anything you think might be helpful in this cause. Only the motivated need feign interest in this.

As I much saying this as anyone else, it's time for some disruption.
