11. Guns for college?

If the goal is to get as many semi-auto weapons off the streets as possible, then they should have the biggest payout compared to other weapons. For example: one semi-auto rifle for one free quarter/semester of college. Of course the exchange rate would require more thought, but the biggest issue would be the for-profit colleges. They wouldn't care for this.

These ideas are also coming from someone who doesn't have anything against guns. I use to own several. I've also used many weapons systems while in the Army and in Iraq. Now days, I don't consider myself stable enough to own one. The idea of self harm is very real for me. That's why I have a service dog in training.
