There is a simple and direct solution to this problem. More obfuscation, more studies, more commissions are not the answer. Just ban weapons which could enable anyone to rapidly and repeated kill innocents en-mass. It is really simple. Screw the demands of the NRA. As far as second amendment rights, bull crap. I could argue that I as a safe driver should not be restricted by stupid speed limits. However, even though I could safely drive faster, I am required to abide by those offensive speed limits imposed on me, simply because others who would speed might not do so safely- the safety of others requires me as a member of society to abide by laws needed to protect others from those who could abuse those rights. Isn’t that why we have banned automatic weapons, machine guns, hand grenades, rocket launchers and tactical nukes from personal use ownership? Assault-type weapons with large clips are not much different.
