  •  We should examine the Australian model (7+ / 0-)

    and use it as a starting point.

    My first firearm was a single-shot .410 shotgun. I had asked for the pump action which held three shells, but my dad said, "what, do you plan on missing?". The point being, my dad correctly sussed that rapid fire is more dangerous. Therefore: Use no semi-automatic firearms as a starting point in the discussion.

    I acknowledge all of the problems, especially with the large stock of existing semi-automatic inventory in the country, but it is an extremely effective way to prevent mass murders (see: Australia) and still have the right to "keep and bear arms" (see: Australia).
