    Law Professor: Police Should Track Gun Purchases, Knock on Your Door After ‘Too Many’
    During the October 9 airing of Tucker Carlson Tonight, law professor Richard Painter suggested police ought to be able to track gun purchases and knock on an individual’s door if that person acquires “too many.”
    The professor would not define what “too many” guns would be, only that police should be able to knock on your door based on gun purchases.

    Painter said:

    I don’t think anybody’s going to come up with a solution that’s going to eliminate all gun violence, but we have a lot of it and this keeps happening. At a minimum, we ought to information on people like Mr. Paddock who are acquiring dozens of weapons over a very shot period of time. It amazes me that the police didn’t know that he was acquiring that many weapons over such a short period of time. That information ought to be available.

    Carlson responded, “How many weapons in what period of time should trigger a visit to your house from authorities?”

    Painter replied, “I am not an expert on what the threshold ought to be. I think that’s that up to law enforcement.”

    Carlson then interrupted to say, “It’s not up to law enforcement. Nothing’s ‘up to law enforcement.’ It’s up to voters to decide what the laws are and then law enforcement, of course, enforces them by definition.”


    Carlson then pointed to Painter’s tweets, wherein Painter claimed that Vegas-style attacks could be “solved by laws” and he asked Painter to outline a specific law.

    Painter responded,

    Law enforcement ought to know if someone has acquired dozens of weapons and they can use that information along with other information–for example, Is the person associating with known terrorists? Is the person associating with the Ku Klux Klan? Is the person someone who appears to be psychologically unsettled? They can use that information–along with other information–to check out the facts. And they do not need a law to go and pay you a visit in your house and say, “Hello, what’s up? What’s going on?”

    Carlson summarized, “Ok, so you think that if people buy too many guns the police should go visit them and ask why they have the guns and do what?”

    Painter suggested the answer the Carlson’s question is in flux. He said, “That depends.” Painter the said “they might or might not have figured out this guy was a lunatic or the guy who shot up the gay bar.”

    The Orlando Pulse gunman had two guns; he had purchased two guns. Within the constrictions of a seven-minute interview on Tucker Carlson Tonight Painter went from police knocking on the door of people who bought dozens of guns to knocking on the door of people who bought two.

    It’s always “the police should do this, the police should do that.” How about you do it jerkoff? Man up and try this stupid suggestions yourself. Idiot.

    You can never have too many guns, you can only have too small of a house/warehouse.

    There is so much wrong with the statements of this "Educator".

    First we have the 2A that is there to protect gun owners. Period. Our Bill of Rights says nothing about a certain made up limit of what we can or should have.

    Second, certain groups may be deplorable to some; it is not unlawful to be a member of the groups that he mentions, ie. the KKK.

    The Second Amendment is not the only Right these fucking losers are trying to make disappear, their fight is bigger than the 2nd. They want to destroy many of the Rights that true Americans hold dear!

    That's what I hate the most about these people. They are lazy and cowardly. They never have any specifics or details, just hazily outlined ideas and opinions. And they expect everyone but themsleves to flesh everything out and execute. Liberals are a despicable people.

    In Westchester, the permitting judges can already request that the police do a home inspection every 6 pistols. And.... they do make such requests....regularly.

    So how does the conversation go? Knock on door:
    police "hi, we see you bought x number of guns"
    me "yes, I am a happy gun owner"
    police "ok can we see them?"
    Me "no, they are sleeping right now"
    police "we really need to see them"
    me "no"
    police "please?"
    me "no"
    police "we can get a warrant if we need"
    me "ok, get a warrant"
    police come back with warrant "can we see your guns"
    me "ok" show them guns
    police "they look like guns"
    me "ok"
    police "have a nice day"
    me "you too"

    What's the point?

    I could arm a militia, 1776 style!
    As stupid as that may sound it pales in comparison to this idiot specifically and much of the actually proposals being made in general.

    Well, after they gather the information needed about your arsenal, they can scour the Interwebs and connect you with a group that may or may not a bad group of people. Maybe you belong to gun forums (evil people there). Or you are a closet member of the KKK. Or you are Liberal or you voted for Trump or you don not like another group of people. Then they have evidence against you and a reason to disarm you and your family!

    As others have pointed out these people are ridiculous. At the same time they claim a nazi fascist is currently in the white house they want to give more power and authority to the govt. I guess they just assume people like them will always be in power.

    The "Stupid" is strong in this one... And it figures it's a professor, oh the horror!

    By this example if a person buys breath mint at a Gas Station they should be subject to a search, sobriety test... How ridiculous!

    Citizens should be able to review the finances and inspect the homes and vehicles of politicians to find out why so many of them become millionaires working at a public salary.
