This appears to be gun-control that works....
Make the purchase of certain classes of firearms more vigorous.


Not to mention the cost factor. If the cost is too high the criminals have a harder time getting them to use because they are worth more to sell.



Veering slightly off what you're saying, do you think buy-back programs help at all? I've been reading contradicting reports about them, especially with their scope for misuse.

Here's one I recently read: https://www.foxnews.com/us/woman-turns-in-gun-at-baltimore-gun-buyback-progam-to-upgrade-to-better-weapon

Also, would you consider giving your guns up in a scheme like this?


Unless it was a gun in poor shape or cheaply made, the potential income from selling it to another individual would be greater than the amount received from most buy back programs.


I am not considering selling any of my guns, but would sell the high capacity magazines as part of a program to remove them from the market as part of a ban.

Why only the high capacity magazines? Any specific reason?


They cannot be used for hunting as the low capacity magazines can be and they allow a much great number of shots between reloading, which is where they become a critical factor in the mass shooting situations. It is removing the ability to fire 30+ shots before reloading during a period where the shooter is targeting innocent people with very little impact on gun ownership.

In general, the public should have some assurance that firearms are registered and owners have sufficient training in using them.

Given the current trajectory of global issues, I think more will find the need to defend themselves.
