I would like to raise these issues on U.S gun ownership. I do not agree with taking away guns from people.

I lived in Australia for ten years, and they have legal handgun ownership.
Australia seems to have control over violent people owning guns, and the whole time I was in Australia I cannot recall more than a handful of instances reported of a gun crime being committed- so the Aussies must be doing something right..

Here is the list of my ideas.

1. No gun ownership under 25's unless you have a family to protect (trained security/police and professional gun users excepted.)
2. Authority check on gun owners to ensure all U.S States have details of convictions such as assault, primarily dangerous or threatening behavior, especially those convicted after the purchase of a gun.
3. Authorities could demand internet server providers to reveal if a person seeking the purchase of a gun has visited violent websites and appears to be a potential threat- therefore giving authorities the choice to authorize the gun sale or not.
4. An electronic gun holster, which by law has to be connected to a secure Police or Security Web Service, which detects when a gun owner removes the gun- and waits for a code to be entered. If no code is entered on the holster keypad, then the authorities are notified of a possible theft or unauthorized use of a legally registered weapon.

I believe my ideas are reasonable. One person on Facebook suggested my idea took away the 2nd I responded to him that, if people have to protect their community by forming a small civilian defense force, then surely older men with experience with a gun and a cool head would be better defending their communities. Young men should be internet activists- leave the gun stuff to the older,cool headed experienced men...
