Jay Leno owns hundreds of cars, and uses a car daily. Cars contribute to over 30,000 deaths in the US yearly. I own 6 guns, and shoot about three times a month, if ammo is available.

This license requires all firearms purchased under it to be recorded in a "bound book".

So why all the hype about guns??? There seem to be 9 more lethal causes to eliminate before addressing gun-related deaths...

On one side is what is referred to as the Gun Nuts with the point being taken by the NRA. Then there are the Anti-Gun Nuts - you don’t hear that term do you? They are being led by many -- including our President -- who states he is just proposing “common sense” changes. Then there are those of us caught in the middle of a gun fight.

There are plenty of...
