I've been following this board for sometime, was meaning to post a hello some time ago, but never did. Hopefully people don't discount what I have to say due to my lack of activity, but I would understand if they did.
I have an idea for gun control, I know, not a great way to start posting. Both pro-gun and anti-gun people are outraged by this recent tragedy, we need to be part of the solution, I believe the days of drawing a hard line will not work this time.
Here is my idea, look at it as a whole, not just individual pieces that people may or may not like. I do not blame the guns for this tragedy, nor do I think that my ideas would have stopped it, but the public will be looking for a scapegoat to blame for this and they will blame the guns. Changes are going to come of this and I fear that they will not be good, we need to have pro-gun people involved in the conversation. So, here is my 5 point idea:
1. Allow mental heath care workers to report unstable people without fear of HIPAA
2. End all “gun free zones”
3.Ban magazines over 17 for handgun, over 30 for rifle
4.National reciprocity for CCW
5. Back ground checks for private sales
