45. We have to convince the gun lovers that we don't want to take away their guns

... Well, maybe we do but that's not what needs to happen in this country. I've never owned a gun, never gone hunting, never been in a gang or robbed a bank. Here's my point: we have to start somewhere. We have to outlaw ownership of military-style assault rifles in this country. There's no reason for any American citizen (also non-citizens) to own or use such weapons.

Military assault weapons should be banned immediately, along with parts and ammo. Notify everyone on record that they have a certain amount of time to turn in the weapon to law enforcement. Yes I know that many of them won't do it, but we have to start somewhere. Make it illegal for people to own, conceal or sell them. In a few years the AR-15s and other assault weapons will be harder to get and harder to conceal from the law.

Eventually these military weapons should be confiscated but not until after the right-wing nut jobs finally settle down and realize that we're not going to take away their OTHER guns. Emotions and fears are running so high right now that it doesn't seem possible for the actual confiscation to happen for many years. Hopefully today's kids will grow up to be sensible adults unlike their parents and grandparents, and they'll be ready to cooperate with an effective solution.

We have to start somewhere and we have to do it now. Ban the sale and distribution of military assault rifles immediately. Put the NRA out of business or at least make it impossible for them to channel illegal money to the Trussian-GOP.
