And those are the people who PASSED the test.

Treating guns like automobiles is a very good idea, from training to testing to insuring against their misuse. Know who is good at figuring out how risky a person might be and price them out of the gun market if they are an unreasonable risk? Yeah.

I'd like to know what the health requirements would be. Otherwise I think it's a sound plan. I'd really like to see the liability insurance happen. I don't see anything there that our family gun owners wouldn't agree to.

The above could be adopted at state level couldn't it?

On the night of the shooting, a group of uninvited guests walked into a home and a fight began, authorities said. The fight led to the shooting and multiple people were hit.

Two people -- Delvaunte Johnson, 19, and Toshaun Banks, 21 -- died at the scene. A third person, Devaughn Gibson, 23, later died at a hospital.


Smh. Guns are too easy to get, and too easy to use.
