    There are a few of us for it.  Not many.

    That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".

    •  why are you for an ID card? (2+ / 0-)

      honest query.  

      Our last government here tried to introduce it (thank you, Tony Bliar - not) and it was very unpopular.  The data collected in preparation was solemnly and publicly destroyed by the present government to loud cheers, which included mine.

      •  To have ID that the government (5+ / 0-)

        will accept, for one. To have ID that others can rely on.

        My favorite story is DHS's check policy.  You need ID to deliver a personal check. But it doesn't accept a passport as ID.  Who issues passports?   But it will accept a social security card, which has "not to be used for identification" right on it.

        That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".
