Here’s an easy solution: Allow no one under the age of 30 to own a firearm and only allow those under 30 to operate a firearm under the direct supervision of a legal gun owner 30 or older.

Well, who is going to fill our military ranks then? I say, only those 30 and older — as it should be! Bring back the draft for those between 30 and 45. Give them two years of responsibility in combat service.

As a gun owner myself, I do not see the National Rifle Association coming forth with any solutions. Don't wait for the NRA to help.
