    Sen. Marlon Kimpson wants to introduce a little common sense to gun debate

    Kimpson has plans to file five pieces of legislation meant to close loopholes in gun laws and require better background checks and registration, as well as banning assault weapons and clips that hold an insane number of rounds.

    ...further down the story...

    He also wants firearms registered with SLED to keep a better tracking system for guns, and to require people report when their guns are stolen.
    Perhaps his most controversial idea, however, is to require people to get a permit from the state to buy firearms.
    Then there is the writer's point of view.

    Heís absolutely right. In politics, timing is everything. Just like it was with the Confederate flag debate, events have forced our hand ó and forced reasonable people to quit ignoring some serious problems.

    Letís hope the Legislature listens and uses the senatorís reasonable proposals as a starting point to introduce a little common sense into the law.

    Because Kimpson is not the fool here.

    I recommend that Mr. Brian Hicks research the legal meaning of "prior restraint" and its application to our enumerated rights.

    Hint: Mr. Brian Hicks should be required to have a state issued permit to ply his trade. I mean, his rights will not be infringed...words can be just as deadly as a gun, or a car.

    But if the feds donít come back with an answer after that time, the dealer has the discretion to go ahead and sell. You can guess what often happens ó three days is nothing to a bureaucracy as large as the federal government, and they often miss the deadline.

    from posted link above ^^

    As a former FFL, I have not found this to be true at all. Another lie ... gotta say something I guess.

    Brian Hicks is a gun control advocate anyhow.........

    so none of what he pens should surprise anyone. He was decrying the "gunfight at the OK Corral" when the proposal to change the CC law allowing carry into restaurants serving alcohol was first announced. Nothing has happened because of that change has it? Now he wants us to have to wait for a Federal clearance to purchase a gun to be returned? If the Feds have no deadline, you can bet many applicants will just never be responded to at all. They will somehow be "lost' in the paperwork.

    Kimpson is a political hack looking to garner votes and Hicks is just carrying his water.
