  •  Extended clips, assault weapons, gunshow loophole (10+ / 0-)

    That is where we start. Addressing this would have the most immediate impact and pave the way for other discussions beyond just sensible gun laws.  About mental healthcare, community policing, and EDUCATION.

    But to get the ball rolling on any of these, we must make a concerted push on ONE of them.  Reinstate the Assault Weapons Ban, prohibit ammunition magazines larger than 10 rounds, and regulate ALL firearms sales.

      We do need to start here.

      Why a private citizen requires the need to buy assault weapons will never make sense to me. development and changes in weaponry continue on whole the dialogue about control over these new weapons stall.

      Two prongs:

      1.)  Stop originalism.

      2.)  If you are going to practice originalism, actually be accurate w/r/t original understanding of the text (not what Scalia thinks by virtue of being old, white, rich, and crotchety - which apty describes the mindset of many of our founding fathers).

      Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
