Immediate ban on all guns.
Guns only for military/police.
Bolt/pump/lever action ok, no semi-autos.
Gun laws are fine as they currently stand.
Select-fire weapons should be allowed.
You can have them when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.
I want a tank.
I believe that we should be allowed to own guns. But I do think that there needs to be a way to track private sales. I think there should be a title that changes hands, just like a car. That way if that gun is used in a crime, you have a record that it was sold and you no longer own it. I also think that we need more education on the subject. Just locking everything down isn't right. I mean look how well that has worked with sex ed in schools. You limit what you can teach, kids are going to try it just because they haven't been given the proper education on it. This might be a uneducated opinion, but that is what I believe.
I think the way laws are set now are just fine. Even with "Assault Rifles" available to the public.
If you ask me, the real issue is the background checks and how guns are sold.
These laws need to be tightened up. No selling guns at a gun show anymore unless you run the buyers info through the Feds.
Also, stricter laws for anyone who has needed any psychiatric help in the past and they would need clearance from a Psychiatrist (or two) saying it is safe for them to own a gun.
Basically do a better job of making sure those who shouldn't have a gun (i.e. ex-Cons or crazies) don't have access to them.
*edit: Oh and as an add-on, if you're going to be a sh*tty parent and own a gun, at least lock your sh*t up so your crazy kids don't take it out on others.

You're not suggesting Americans should/would lie down in the face of our Democracy destroyed & replaced by an actual frigging Tyrant are you?
These colors don't run.

1. Close the resale loophole. No reason why a person should have to go through a background check buying a gun at a store but not one when buying in the secondary market.
2. Colleges should be gun free zones. Young adults and their faults with guns around? No thanks.
thats about it. Fully automatic guns are already disallowed, and its of course the right call. Semi automatic is iffy, but there are reasons out there for them.
I am a strange animal. I am a pot-smoking, shaggy-haired gun owner. Very pro 2nd amendment. I own a S&W 659 with four 15 round mags. I hope they don't pass a law here in Colorado as stupid as the one they passed in NY.
I often hear the argument "who needs a semi-auto rifle?" But really we live in a society that is all about immersing yourself in **** you don't need. My personal stance is that you may not need high-capacity mags, ARs, semi-autos, autos, etc., but that they should be legal to own and it shouldn't be any of the government's damn business.
And really our government has conducted so many nefarious operations that I would never want them to be the only ones with guns, but I don't want to overthrow anything. I want to defend myself against anything and also go to the range when I get the chance.
Owning a gun isn't a real crime just like smoking weed isn't a real crime. Punish the actual criminals, not us.
