Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

How about that idea as a way to reduce gun violence and really challenge the NRA?


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

People who do not know how to use guns safely or are mentally unhinged threaten people's domestic tranquility and ultimate violate it. The Newtown children had theirs violated.

2nd Amendement rights come with responsibilities. A well-regulated militia can use guns and arms, people who know how to use them safely and ensure other's domestic tranquility. Regulations should be put in place to respect both key parts of the Constitution at the same time.

Ensure domestic tranquility is in the preamble of the Constituition.

Background checks can prevent guns from getting in the hands of those who cannot use them safely, thereby ensuring domestic tranquility.

By working with that, we can really reduce gun violence.

Elizabeth Warren can lead from this argument and if people are against this, we can say they are against a key aspect of the Constitution.

I think the gun debate should not be a debate at all and it is very straightforward what policies should be.

If anyone disagrees, what is a alternative way to really stop this gun violence epidemic and hold the NRA/bad guys accountable (besides getting rid of money in politics)?
