“FBI gun control database resembles Swiss cheese”

http://rt.com/usa/news/fbi-gun-database-background-593/

 

if the DB is an issue, it can presumably be worked out/solved with a commitment to invest in ‘big data’/analytics.  I agree that tech can help, as daunting a task to undertake as it may seem.  Similar to the DOHS creation after 9/11, when “we could have known” had state, local, fed gov’t databases/information talked to each other aka linked.  Predictive analytics can be helpful here…

 

“The problem with the FBI database is that states are not required to submit records – participation is voluntary. Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho, who shot and killed 32 people in 2007, had been declared mentally ill by a Virginia state judge, but his record was never submitted to the FBI and he successfully passed a background check to buy his weapons.”

 

4 more people killed and 3 cops injured today in PA:

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.
