The Governor of Virginia Wants Ideas About Guns: Send Him These

Petition Text

With the support of Thom Hartmann, author of "The Hidden History of Guns and the Second Amendment," we encourage you to enact these solutions for guns that have long been useful for cars:
1) Require registration and title for every gun.
2) Require a license based on a written and a shooting-range test.
3) Require gun owners to carry liability insurance.
In addition, we demand that semiautomatic weapons be restricted under the same laws as automatic weapons.

Why is this important?

Guns are the second-leading cause of death among children in the United States. Guns kill about 34,000 people per year in the United States, two-thirds of those being suicides. Countries with reasonable gun laws don't have this level of gun violence.

Reasons for signing

  • Its hypocritical, the NRA tells assault rifle citizens, you need these weapons to fight off the drones, when the government tries to take away your rights, yet they dole out millions of dollars to the same campaign fundraisers of the government. Silly
  • People who need to feel powerful by displaying a weapon, own a mind set much more dangerous then the tool they use to display their power cravings...I'm more afraid of the warped minds. Weapons are only the by product and must be kept out of the hands of sick minded people.
  • a "well regulated militia" is not people walking around with guns on their hip.
