    Hardly any of the gun control suggestions have any basis in reality. The reality is, there is a Second Amendment. Restrictions on that amendment are already in place, including murder, negligence, felon and mental health restrictions. There are flaws in the implementation of the laws that exist, i.e. NICS compliance. Study the current laws, fix them.
    Meanwhile, the most immediate remedy to violence still comes down to social fixes; single payer health care, more funding for mental health, poverty relief, and an  end to the drug war. These occur the second the laws are passed, not some time in the future when grandfathering is surpassed by time.
     Should you feel the Second Amendment not exist, in a Democracy, you are free to work for it's demise. I'll just wait to see your results.
     I want more Democrats elected, in order to implement the social fixes we need in this Country. It ain't gonna happen with more Repubs in office.
