    There's room for fixing the inadequacies of the NICS.
    There's expanding the application of the NICS to personal transactions, known as "the gunshow loophole". That expansion applied to transfers of all firearms, in any location.  
    There's room for improvement on mental health services and reporting of persons, who like Holmes in Colorado, was a danger to others - and raised concerns with his mental health counselor.  

    I'll even toss the ban on ridiculously large magazines in.  Ban everything over 36 rounds.  No grandfather clause.  Turn it in, get a $10 credit, or be caught with it, and face a $1000 fine and a top level misdemeanor charge.

    NOT ENOUGH you say.
    Then there's the scheduled AWB II victory lap.  
    When that sputtered to a halt in Congress, Colorado was to "send a message".

    That message is:
    The will of Diane Feinstein, The Party, MAIG, and The Brady Campaign will not be resisted.
    Oh, and the President. Shotgun Joe too, almost forgot Shotgun Joe.  
    (what is it with VPs and shotguns?)

    What I'm reading here tonight is this:
    Either you're on-board with The Message, or get the fuck out of the Democratic party, as we plan to run candidates who are ON MESSAGE ONLY until hell freezes over.
    Leave your Credit Card information at the door, on your way out.
    We'll take your money - but do us a favor and STFU if you're not ON-MESSAGE.

    We're your betters.  You fucking hicks need to take a seat, follow the cue cards, and otherwise: Shut. The. Fuck. Up.

    Way to build a party.  
    Which party - is debatable.

    The country was in peril; he was jeopardizing his traditional rights of freedom and independence by daring to exercise them.” ~ Joseph Heller, Catch-22

      I'd like to see these four ideas move forward.
