Gun control

Is it possible to have people register their guns annually similar to a car registration? This would allow law enforcement to keep track of who owns which type of gun and track it annually. If there is a registration fee if would help cover the expense of the program. Not sure if this would go against the second amendment? My other thought was also having people submit background checks periodically if they own a gun, not just at time of purchase.

Suggestions About Gun Safety

Hi Mr President,

My suggestions about gun safety is very simple.
1. People under age should not be allowed to have gun.
2. Parents should also be penalized or send for community service if they get caught teaching their under age children on how to handle a gun.

This simple rules is very important because under age children is not very mature at this age, so they must not be allowed to handle and used any weapon. And I hope American still remember what happen at Cleveland Elementary School when 16 year old Brenda Ann Spencer killed 2 people and injured nine others with her rifle, a gift from her father. So I really hope Mr President will consider this suggestions.

Gun Safety Reform

States require owners of cars to register tem, obtain an operators license, and have liability insurance for each car owned
States SHOULD require gun owners to register them, obtain a operators license , and have liability insurance for each gun owned.
There are laws to prevent the public from owning military weapons ( jets fighter, aircraft carriers, attack submarines, tanks artillary and bombs) Why aren’t assault weapons and machine guns included in those restrictions.

File a declaratory judgement action asserting that Congress implicitly consents to a raising of the debt limit when it passes appropriations causing the debt limit to be exceeded. No further consent is required and the debt limit can be raised by executive order enforcing the necessary result of federal law.

Protecting our kids at school.

Dear Mr. President, HERE”S a SUGGESTION/IDEA to think about:
I say enable our ex-servicemen to perform as protective guardians to what America holds most dearest. ..our kids. Hire these ex-military service personnel, dressed as plain clothes agents in our schools to work as 1st Responder Federal Agents to guard our kids at school. Perhaps maybe the President could pass with of course, congressional approval to creating a NEW military branch of service that would be part of HOMELAND SECURITY consisting of JUST returning trained veterans from war or maybe even veterans currently out of work, put them in plain clothes and have them police our schools. We not only provide protection for our kids at school but allow returning veterans out of work veterans to be once again gainfully employed perhaps even with some benefits. These veterans that would act as our 1st responders until SWAT police arrive or while en-route to the scene. As far as the schools, we should setup each classroom with doors that go into lockdown whenever a breach is realized all work being done by ex-Military specialized to handle the setup. When a threat is determined, each teacher at the school that are assigned to a teaching area or space are then required to text back their code to the school’s security office to acknowledge whether their space or room is secure. If no response is made from that space or room, then it should be considered a breach and immediately investigated.

The president of the NRA suggested using Armed guards to protect out students while at school. He did not provide any details on where the funding would come for this. We are cutting budgets for education and adding armed guards would put more strain on these already tight budgets.

Why not have the military protect our school kids. Station military at our schools. They are trained to serve and protect. This is the opportunity to utilize our troops to serve and protect our homeland and bring our troops home! The salaries we pay our military would be spent at home not aboard helping improve the local economies. Less spending for travel, etc would allow some of the military spending to decrease and lower the budget.

More than A Trillion Birds With One Stone

The cuts can be made and a solution to school shootings can be accomplished by shuttng down public schools, as in the buildings, and take them online. This eliminates at least 80% of the nation’s education budget while eliminating the probability of any more such shootings happening again. This should save close to a trillion dollars over a two year period, or possibly more.
