Young & Naive

Ah Johnny, you were so close to getting it, then you lost your grasp of the real world

My first question how are they going to force people to prove they turned in all of their firearms? waterboard them?

You really think passing an addition law would stop someone determined to commit a crime? I mean if people are going to follow the law, the protection order should be enough, shouldn't they, they carry the weight of law, just not the enforcement of the law.

Also understand anyone can acquire a court order, if they can reasonably explain to the court they have a real fear of another human being. If the court accepts that the fear is reasonable, they can issue a restraining order, and if there is evidence of "real" potential violence a protection order.

Now no crime has been committed, and in very likely over 99% of the cases crimes  will not be committed. There is only a real belief of the defendant being in  fear of physical violence.

Look at it from this angle college students are known to party hard, and I have real belief that you will operate a motor vehicle while under the influence, (Since DUI's kill a lot of people every year), and run me down. 

I go to the court express my fear, should the court order you to turn in your car, until you reach a certain age or leave college? You have committed no crime we have only shown the potential for a crime.  (do not tell me that a car is not a weapon, why do they have crimes listed as vehicular homicide, and vehicular manslaughter?)  

Now since you have given up your car, what is going to prevent you from buying, borrowing, or renting or stealing a car? After all, aren't pretty much all the automobiles titled licensed and registered?   I know we can pass another law.

Your president may not have passed any anti gun bills, because in he wants a second term, but during the debate, he said he was in favor of a permanent assault weapons ban , and some kind of control on cheap handguns so poor people can't defend themselves, so that is not an attack on gun owners and the Second Amendment? 

Understand laws are only effective, if people wish to obey the law, tell me you have never broken the speed limit? 

There are only two ways to deter crime:
1: Surety of capture 2: Surety of punishment

So you may like to drive faster than the sign says (signs do not enforce the law), but when you hit a section of the road that cameras are installed you slow down (Surety of Capture) and the ticket in the mail (Surety of Punishment)

Now just for the sake of discussion let us say instead of a "No Guns" sign, the sign stated "Licensed Concealed Carry Holders Welcomed" and suspect knew half the staff were licensed to carry, we wouldn't even be having this discussion
