Guns America

I remember being ecstatic to join JROTC when I was in high school. Grew up spending most of my time outdoors and witnessed many countless propaganda regarding cops and robbers. Wanted to join the Marines so bad, because I knew my physique was above average when it came to competing in sports.

A jar head in the making.

I began learning about firearms and military arsenal at a young age. By age 12, my learning venture shifted to the Air Force. The Independence Day movie really opened my little big mind to F-18's, F-16's, and B-2 Bombers. I wanted to fly. I wanted to save the world. I wanted to be the good guy.

Still have drawings and sketches of my flying arsenal, lol. I was so brain washed.
The only thing on my mind was to train for the day I enlisted myself.
In JROTC, I was fully committed. I joined the Drill team, PT team, and the Rifle team (sharpshooter too *wink wink*) in order to have an edge of the boot camp for when I enlisted. They told me I would be two ranks ahead by the time I completed boot camp. Countless awards and badges earned. 

But the day never came.

Head to class and met up with my Bravo Company, I watched in despair the twin towers burn from a wheeled television set. 

It took me a few days to realize something wasn't right. The physics didn't add up. 
How did the buildings fall so quick? Why did WTC 7 collapse?

I began my own research to find a way to justify the void of unanswered questions that our own government failed to answer. Because, the only answer we had was foreign terrorists. 

The Internet saves the day.

I flooded various chat rooms and forums to seek answers and discovered I wasn't alone.
Time flew and most was forgotten. Then 9/11 Commission Report was released was utter bullshit.

Now, it seems like everyone wants to own firearms to "protect" themselves and/or loved ones. Yet, statistically speaking they are more likely to hurt someone they're trying to protect than the "bad guy".
So, how do we solve this problem?

For starters, I believe mandatory mental evaluations every 6 to 12 months, and proper training before or after the purchase of a new weapon.

Second, a ban on all high power automatics and snipers. That's the whole point of training so you how to aim. (You can still own an automatic or sniper but, must be kept at high-security armory to be used ONLY in a gun range for leisure. Sniper rifles, maybe used during hunting season after a proper mental evaluation and to be used only in season, then returned to the armory.)

Third, possible implementation of GPS tracking on currently owned weapons once the safety button is disengaged.

It's a difficult problem indeed.
But, we need to be open minded and push ourselves to do whats right for future generations, and don't let our ego cloud our judgement from generations of mind controlled tyranny (aka patriotism).
