65. Licensing and registration will never happen

besides, the cost will astronomical - look how much Canada spent on their failed rifle registry. Also irrelevant to criminals getting guns. There is and will always be a huge pool of weapons that are invisible to the authorities. Organize crime will simply stockpile weapons or smuggle new ones in. If they can smuggle drugs by the truck load then guns are not a problem.

Magazine limits = standard mag the weapon was designed for. No real problem with that - huge mags are unreliable gimmicks anyway. There is a reason they are not use by the military.

Reporting lost and stolen guns - ok. Irrelevant to criminals getting guns however.

Background checks on private sales are a state issue - read your Constitution. The Feds can stretch the Commerce Clause just enough to cover gun shows. But intrastate sales are purely a state matter.

Bulk sales - irrelevant to criminals or mass killers. What's the point besides feeling good?

Mental health checks. On the government dime? So you are willing to put gun owners at the front of the line for government health care? Good luck with that. But what happens when mental healthcare professionals realize that saying no will end the government gravy train when gun owners stop going to see them. Conversely, how long will it take for them to figure out that saying yes means a healthy steady income. See marijuana "prescriptions" if you are puzzled.
