8. I don't want to ban ANY guns. I want extensive background checks for ALL guns

 

I want each and every gun to be registered and licensed. Failure to register and license any gun should be a felony.

I want ALL transfers of gun ownership to go through a FFL.

I want to repeal the registry prohibition in the FOPA so the registry is federal. I'll give on the Hughes Amendment and we can repeal that, too, so those who jump through the hoops for automatic weapons can get newer automatic weapons. Anybody who is licensed under the NFA to own automatic weapons is not a concern to me.

Yes, I know it will be a damned rough getting all existing guns registered and licensed, but that's the price gun owners have to pay for their failure to insure responsibility within their ranks. It will require time, and much of the registry and licensing of existing guns will occur during transfers, but within five years all guns MUST be licensed and registered and possession of an unregistered/unlicensed weapon should be a federal felony with a mandatory minimum sentence of five years for each count.
