6. I certainly don't care if some types of weapons are banned...

...but it's an endless argument to define and describe a changing world of weapons: automatics, magazines, plastic guns, etc., etc. (not to mention the future of new devices).

No matter what the weapon is; from a flintlock to a guided missile, dangerous people should not have possession without a serious screening process. If everyone had to show a license whenever they...

1.) bought a bullet
2.) entered a shooting range
3.) transported a gun
4.) went hunting
5.) bought or sold a gun
6.) purchased mandatory insurance

Well, you get the idea. It would not be long before a proportion of the dangerous people would have a much harder access to guns. People who had a legitimate use for a gun would have to jump through a bunch of inconvenient hoops. Those inconveniences are not unconstitutional - just inconvenient. The return is many, many of the shootings we have now would occur less frequently. It would save many, many lives.
