As a compromise for keeping guns in the hands of the good guys maybe we make gun ownership something you have to actually go through a real application process for. Maybe there is a public hearing on it and we have a moment to challenge the status of the citizen applying. People need jobs, so perhaps the state could pay assistants to help you establish your reason for gun ownership, and they could also check on your gun and make sure it was secure. It is nothing any law abiding citizen would have any fear of. I am putting this here because I am honestly asking.
