Subject: RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
Well, the proposals are out there... It really boils down to some very reasonable ideas that aren't rocket surgery...

1. Ban military style assault rifles...

2. Close the gun show loophole...

3. Restrict magazine capacity...

4. Modernize the data base for background checks...

5. Lift the ban on funding gun violence research...

Horrors, right???

Not really...

Here's what didn't get proposed:

1. Registration of all handguns...

2. Certification that gun owners understand how to use them...

3. Ban on military style ammunition...

I mean, let's get real here... We should be able to accomplish what Obama has proposed... I'll be composing letters tonight to my two senators and my congressman...

Will you???
