    We both want the same thing.  Are approaches are simply different.

    I simply believe that we can get to where we both want to be (less gun violence) with my proposal, without banning all guns made/sold in this country since the late 1800s.

    Not only that, but as far as implementation, I feel that these three regulations stand a far better chance of actually becoming law then the ban of all semi automatic rifles and handguns.

    Personally, I don't target shoot.  But I know that millions of Americans do.  If you can make proposals that are inclusive enough to get enough support and yet surgical enough to eliminate the root of the problem without going over board, you stand a real chance of getting something done that will safe lives.

    That's my feeling anyway.

      Your repeated claim that I am trying to ban "all guns made/sold in this country since the late 1800s" is a straw man. I haven't said that.

      I do think we should not allow most citizens access to any guns that are made to kill large numbers of humans in a short period of time.
      Use whatever terminology to define those guns that you want to use, but it doesn't change the fact that there are many guns made and used in the US that do not fit that description. I know that a lot of my neighbors use guns that don't fit that description to hunt around here.

      So if you want to have a real conversation, please don't set up straw men.
