    I have no problem with the expired 10 round limit, especially if it could be a single limit for all firearms instead of having 3 or 5 or 10 for this or that or other.

    I do have some issues with limits below 10 mostly on the basis that it has been a very common magazine size. There are guns out there where getting a smaller magazine would be difficult, or perhaps impossible at this time. The number of firearms, and magazines, that would be affected explode in number.

    I support closing the private party sale exemption ("gun show loophole".) I also support a requirement for private party and dealers to report stolen or lost firearms. To stop straw purchasers some additional enforcement efforts are needed, and perhaps supporting legislation.

    Another thought, off the top of my head, is a program that would pull the dealers licenses from those dealers which continue to be suppliers of firearms used by criminals. By the limited reports available it looks like a large percentage of the guns used by criminals come from just 1% of the dealers.
