11. Just read an article about Biden's taskforce

 

Speaking as a gun owner, I could compromise with magazine limits if that would satisfy people... but I'd like to see it somewhere around 15 instead of 10. Shit, you could even ban the larger ones outright. I would like something written into the legislation to ease my mind about future encroachments into gun rights.

Since I carry a handgun in an area with feral dogs. I can imagine 5 dogs, 3 rounds each and feel okay about that. I don't want to be mucking around with a magazine change. 10 is not quite right. 20 seems larger than needed.

I still think the following would accomplish more than something that looks like the old AWB

(1) legalize pot to deescalate drug related gun violence.
(2) eliminate mandatory minimums for drug possession, let those people out of jail, then create mandatory minimums for violent crimes with multipliers for contact crimes and those committed while in possession of a firearm.
(3) address education and illiteracy to alleviate poor on poor gun violence.
(4) subsidize mental health care for people who may commit these acts (they're always seem to be on somebody's radar).
(5) better background checks... better linkages between mental health and violence disqualifies and the background checks... however there must be a decent appeal process.
(6) intensify the background checks for first time purchasers.
(7) give private sellers access to the background check system (I think a lot of people would do this if they had access to it in a private party sale).
