The time for major gun control changes is now. Not just incremental changes, but true, overall re-thinking. We need to deter violence. We need to do it now!
Here are some thoughts and ideas that should be considered:
-Close the so-called gun show loophole which allows people to buy weapons without going through the background checks that are standard when you purchase
-Reinstate the assault gun weapon ban
-Eliminate the availability multi-bullet magazines, except for military use
-Develop a thorough gun application process, including a psychological test, psychological and medical backgrounds of gun applicant and all household members. The gun application must be renewed every four years, with the full application process redone.
-Require a locked gun case be purchased with every gun, no matter what kind
-Limit the number of working guns allowed in a household to one for self-protection and one for hunting. If someone is a gun collector, the guns they purchase should be non-working.
-All gun owners must register their guns with the local police department. The gun permit may be revoked if there are problems with household violence.
Let's make the U.S. a more peaceful and loving place!
