Accidental Shooting in TN Leads to Long Overdue Arrest for Child Abuse

Local news reports

There are a lot of small-time losers out there who own guns legally even though they have pages of arrests. That's why we need stricter gun control laws, higher standards for who may own guns including a "may-issue" policy for gun ownership.

Guys like Daniel Guggan, who may still qualify for gun ownership under the current lax system, would be disarmed and everyone would benefit.

  1. You do understand the difference between arrest and conviction, no? We weren't told how many convictions either of the parents have. They do appear to be prohibited persons--alcohol abuse is one of the list of no-noes on the ATF form.

    The problem is that you can't predict people who will go bad. You'd have to have registration of their guns to know what to take away, and we'll never allow that. There's a fundamental danger with registration. The government can take from everyone what it knows about.
