      federal trafficking legislation and enforcement.

      It is not like the manufacturers and
      dealers are unknown to everyone.
      These are the sources, and I am sure
      they realize that the focus will soon be
      directly on their 'business' models and practices.

      How difficult would it be to reverse the firearms
      industries immunity from torts and prosecutions?
      Or perhaps some states could make the manufacturers
      carry mandatory liability insurance for every individual sale?

      I wonder if the Dkos RKBA would be welcome at netroots?
      Allowed to have a booth? That could make for some
      interesting and provocative discussions. Doesn't our
      true opposition usually schedule a shadow
      boxing match around the same time and vicinity?

      What if they put on a gun show and the fail hit the fan?

      What part of "well regulated" is so hard to grasp?

      My Unicornitopian aspect hopes for some
      dark matter energy field personal defense
      that renders the entire debate moot, and soon.

      Until then, some modest legislation will have to do.
      I could tolerate a tiered license structure for the various
      capacity grades and such. The veterans speaking out
      in favor of background checks should also support
      mandatory proficiency testing and safety training also.

      Might be a good jobs program for recently returned veterans.
      If anyone has earned the right to screen fellow citizens
      for a potential risk of harming the rest of us, it is them.

      I haven't yet decided whether to view the fact that the criminal
      and conspiratorial minded would not cooperate in such areas
      as a positive, or negative, on the whole. Self selection
      might work to our species favor in more than one way.

      Your work here on this and other
      issues has been a true inspiration
      in its compassionate and reasoned humanity,
      considering your proximity to recent events.

      Thank you for all of your many efforts.
