I believe something should be done to protect citizens from gun violence, I am not sure what the answer is though.

The problem is that stricter gun laws are NOT effective and once the anti-gun groups get a foot-hold they will not let go and it won't be long before ALL guns are illegal. That is why there is such a fight on both sides when new gun laws are introduced, it's the give-an-inch and take-a-mile mentality that we have to guard against.

Maybe if there was more of a give and take relationship, then something may get accomplished. Free up the ownership [and carry] of "acceptable" firearms and we would gladly give up purchasing "unacceptable" firearms. I would trade all my high capacity magazines for [returning] my right to carry a five or six shot weapon on my person.

I do not believe any normal citizen has a need for high capacity magazines, and certainly the reduction in the amount of rounds a weapon can carry will reduce the number of victims in these horrific situations. But I'll be damned if I will willing vote for that reduction when I know that it will just be a stepping stone to further restrictions and eventually lead to the outlawing of ALL firearms.
