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.
