    We all have heard the hype on stricter gun controls. Most of us understand that all these proposals are really pointless. It's not responsible gun owners causing the problems.
    One thing we need to do IS get guns from those who are not legally allowed to have them. This to me makes sense.
    So today I sent emails to senator Wyden and congressman DeFazio of Oregon with an idea I yet have heard from anyone.
    A "BOUNTY" Offer a reward (Bounty) for turning in those people who illegally possess a firearm! This could be funded numerous ways.
    Bottom line is? crooks would be turning in crooks, they wouldn't trust each other. Authorities would quickly develop a data base of who had guns. Also if the person who snitched also was not legally allowed to posses a firearm,zipppp- into the data base they go too.(That tidbit needs to be in the fine print on like page 1102 of the bill)
    Talk about no honor among thieves! Ha Ha these people would be falling all over them selves to get free money for drugs or what ever, OMG we could follow the money to the dealers to.
    Just a thought.

    8 states don't even bother to report mental illness to the NCIS. What would be a citizens motivation to get involved when our government doesn't even do their job of protecting it's citizens?

    I tried this logic a couple weeks ago and was shot down. I still think a bounty is a good idea.

    Didn't New jersey already try a "rat out your neighbor" law?

    I can just see all sorts of abuse if anon tips are allowed. Make anyone reporting give their personal info.

    How about this:

    1. If you are on Public Assistance, you cannot own a firearm. You have to sell it and return some of the food stamps.

    2. If you dropped out of high school, you cannot own a gun.

    3. If you belong to or are associated with a street gang, you cannot own a gun.

    4. If you impregnated a female before your 19th birthday, you must sell your firearms and use the money for baby food.

    5. If you are determined to be a reckless, IRRESPONSIBLE, impulsive MORON with no marketable skills.....you must sell your firearms and pay for job training.

    There would be no "gun problem" if urban gang bangers and mentally ill people (the Mental Health System is BROKEN) had no access to firearms.

    Persons on any type of assistance including Social Security for mental issues can not own a gun, we already have those records, and with turning in an illeagal person bounty we get both worlds.

    INFRINGE- "/in'frinj/
    Verb
    Actively break the terms of (a law, agreement, etc.): "infringe a copyright".

    I think Hitler and Stalin liked that "turn in your neighbor idea". Great way to have a little fun with the next door people who have a wandering pet.NOT
    Another way to keep the masses divided.

    Can't you fools get it thru your heads that we don't need any new GUN Control. You are just adding to the GUN CONTROL hysteria and not using common sense!!

    Hey Bangalore, google the name Anthony Cumia, and then tell me if you still think high school drop outs shouldn't own a gun.

    if i knew ANYONE with an illegal firearm,i would just go to my police capt. and tell him. but i just dont know any stupid people or criminals. a few years ago some folks had the idea to go thru the public housing buildings in nyc with drug and gun sniffing dogs,great idea! thats where 99% of all the crime is, but all the po folks got pissed and said why are they being singled out? ya cant win.

    What exactly IS an "illegal" firearm?

    Redfin.... That is called "illegal search and seizure"....Im sure you would agree that those "po folks" are as entitled to Constitutional protections as the rest of us.

    ok, all my friends like my self have foid cards ,we buy our firearms from gun shops. we have been fingerprinted,backround checked,etc. we have nothing to hide. the goverment knows what guns we own, where we live and work,where we bought the guns and what we paid. the guy next to me with the perazzi last sunday at the trap range,did he buy that from some homie in a ally in camden?or did he go thru all the crap like i did? and as illigal search and seizure,if you are on wellfare and living in public housing, think,who has the most to gain if they did that? the po folks say they cant sit outside with out gun shots ringing out all nite,kids being shot while they sleep,etc.this dosent happen where i live,i live in a nice town ,not a ghetto.
    just think ,if they got all the drugs and ilegal guns out of the ghetto ,crime would drop down to almost zero.

    Bangalore,

    Think about things before you type!

    Your ideas are way too broad and absolute. You would disarm way too many good people with your silly ideas.

    One thing that sticks out is that you are" reckless, IRRESPONSIBLE, impulsive" (your words)because you didn't think for second before you posted your crap. and if you did think about it you are for sure a "moron"

    Its time for you to turn in your guns
