  •  A nice start, obviously inadequate as is (4+ / 0-)

    or by itself, since it only applies to NY and any idiot can still buy a small arsenal in another state and drive it to NY and do some nasty stuff with it there. But it is a step in the right direction and hopefully other states and eventually the federal government will follow suit and make it a lot harder for some nutjob to commit the sorts of acts of madness we've seen.

    Personally, I wish there was a way to make existing assault weapons illegal, at least for private individuals in their homes, restricting them to licensed gun ranges and safely stored. Or, requiring that they be nationally licensed and perhaps fitted with some sort of RFID device so they can't be transported across state lines or taken to public places.

    This is obviously complicated, from a technical and political pov. But we need to do something about these instruments of death and suffering.
