    In Maryland they passed a law requiring new gun owners to submit digital fingerprints to the state police. I heard on the news that Beretta and the NRA plan to challenge the law in court after it goes into effect October 1. I don't see the problem. They want their products to wind up in the hands of responsible gun owners, and responsible gun owners will get fingerprinted. Got a problem with that? Exhibit A: Hadiya Pendleton, who won't get to go to college. Exhibit B: Jonylah Watkins, who will never get to take her first steps.

    How would the fingerprinting law have helped either child?

    The perps who killed them didn't acquire the guns legally.

    Want to control guns?

    How about let's start enforcing existing laws.....

    Like this:

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/stor...eapons-charges

    If it wasn't an NFL player, they'd still be sitting in jail waiting for their hearing.

    DUI, accessory to DUI, pot (which I REALLY don't care about) and guns in the car, and they're back out on the street.

    Enforce the damned laws. I'm willing to bet that if the laws as they stand were firmly enforced, people would be railing about how draconian they are. Controlling objects accomplishes nothing if society can't control people.

    This Indiana case is a prime example of a person who should not be allowed to keep guns. After his arrest he was diagnosed
    with a mental disorder & he now wants his guns back, all 48 of them. (His guns were seized after he was arrested)

    I wonder what Indiana laws are regarding mental health issues ... and whether that diagnosis could be used to keep him from getting the guns back ... Mental health is such a hot-button topic, and so tricky to define and enforce ...

    Indiana laws are actually immaterial in this case, as he has been diagnosed with a mental illness. If he is mentally ill and that holds up in a challenge, by Federal law he cannot possess firearms.
