1. Ban detachable magazines of greater than 10 round capacity. Some high capacity guns will therefore have to be banned as well, such as the .22 with 100 round drum. Internal magazines limited to existing models of .22 and antique/reproduction firearms.

2. Trade or buy back existing inventory of high capacity detachable magazines over a period of time after which possession is a felony.

3. Universal background checks for each purchase. FFL license holders required to handle paperwork for background check and transfer at a set cost much like the state automobile inspection system cost is set.

4. Universal registration of weapons to determine latest legal owner purchase card tied to registered weapons via smart chip.

5. Any weapon used in a crime traced to last legal owner, if improperly transferred last legal owner now classified as legal conspirator for said crime.

6. Registration card required for all purchases of firearms or ammunition. This is part of the background check the FFL holder will make. If purchasing ammo not supported by a registered gun, the system will flag the holder for investigation to determine reason. information compared to voter registration and drivers license, with any possible change of address flagged.

7. Registration card requires proof of training to handle weapon safely and to undergo a psyche evaluation. Renewal on regular basis including evaluation.

8. CCW has automatic approval with valid registration card if requested.

9. Straw purchase of ammo or firearms now able to be tracked.

10. No limit on where firearms or ammo may be purchased, but firearms must still be shipped to FFL holder.

Here's my list:

1. Enforce the existing gun laws before considering any others.

If you cannot enforce the laws already in place, how do expect more stringent laws to succeed, other than punishing more and more law abiding gun owners?

Here's an example of not enforcing the existing laws...

FBI Director James Comey said the man accused of killing nine people in a Charleston, S.C., church should never have been allowed to purchase a weapon.

Comey said flaws in paperwork and communication between a federal background check worker and state law enforcement allowed Dylann Roof to buy a handgun in South Carolina on April 16 — weeks before he allegedly attacked black churchgoers in a failed attempt to fuel a race war.


And crack down on straw purchases. The majority of guns sold illegally via a straw purchase happen from a small percentage of gun dealers. Why in the hell aren't they investigated and prosecuted more? Probably a manpower issue.

Yeah, that's what I thought, it appears that the FED's are either lax doing their job enforcing the existing laws, or just don't have the manpower or money......

"ATF officials say that only about 8% of the nation's 124,000 retail gun dealers sell the majority of handguns that are used in crimes. They conclude that these licensed retailers are part of a block of rogue entrepreneurs tempted by the big profits of gun trafficking. Cracking down on these dealers continues to be a priority for the ATF. "

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline ... /guns.html

The FFL agent I utilized buying guns online had her FFL revoked. She also sold firearms at gun shows. I think it was some paperwork irregularities.

http://www.politifact.com/punditfact/st ... es-commit/

This data show only between 3 and 11 percent of criminals acquired their firearms in a manner which would have required a background check. There is a reason for that low percentage. They cannot pass a background check so they have to use other means.
