I agree no automatic or high caliber weapons. Or armor piercing ammo.
Nobody with a criminal record shoud be allowed to buy ANY gun. But it is a state by state matter. I can go to any of a dozen gun stores and buy whatever right now. NY is different as is NJ.
Thank you for replying in a sane and respectful manner. I enjoy having a discussion with people like you, even if we have differing opinions.
Well, we have to change our background check system to ensure that in the future, these psychos like the killer yesterday, and others you mentioned are deemed "NOT clean" or allowed to purchase/own a gun. I hope we can all agree on that. I agree with your whole last paragraph, except with the state by state matter. I think the feds have to step in and regulate more.
