Piers Morgan had a great idea about gun control in the Daily Mail today (June 13):
We’ve had a no-fly list for suspected terrorists for years, so why not a no-buy list? It’s time for Trump and the NRA to show whose side they’re on
Here's the best summary of his idea, which comes near the end of the article:
"But how about this for an idea? I want every known ISIS sympathiser in America on FBI files, including every name on the no-fly list, to be banned with immediate effect from buying a gun, so we can try to save American lives."That sounds really good to me as an idea. In fact, it sounds downright familiar.
Like to this:
There should be a "no gun" list
And here's what I said:
"If someone is on record as a) making threats, b) attempting or indicating a desire for suicide, c) expressing a desire to harm or injure another person, d) being a professed member of a group or groups that advocate violence toward a different group, e) having a psychological condition or having a family member with a known psychological condition, and f) writing a rambling manifesto expressing threats, endangerment, or hate for other people or groups -- their name should go on a basic "no gun" list. It means they can't buy guns and they can't have guns."
See? Simple. Great minds think alike. Or, great thoughts get thought by great thinkers.
