Questions for those who support banning firearms. [View all]

Note one: Different gun opponents have different views on gun control, so no one set of answers should be viewed as representing all gun control view points.

Note two: These questions do not address gun registration or stricter background checks because I think those policies are more self explanatory.

1) Which guns would you like to see banned? (I am not looking for a specific list, but rather answers such as handguns, fully-automatic weapons, all guns, etc.)

2-a) Would there be "grandfather clause" for those who already own those types of guns?

2-b) If you against the "grandfather clause," how would you suggest the government to confiscate those guns?

2-c) If you are not against the "grandfather clause," would the banned guns be confiscated when the gun owner dies, or would the gun owner be allowed to pass on the guns in his or her will? Would the gun owner be allowed to sell or give the "grandfathered" gun to other people?

3) How do you feel about other personal defense weapons, such as pepper spray and taser guns?

4) If your personal policies toward guns was enacted, and violent crime increased in consequence, would you support reverting back current gun-ban policies? (You still may support stricter registration and back ground policies.)
