    Why do you two obsess over "whats next"? You are fighting a strawman and not dealing with the actual issues. If somebody makes a common sense proposal for gun safety then you can agree or disagree. What you think they are going to do next shouldn't be any kind of a factor.

    If you don't think Auto weapons should be legal because they are too destructive but you won't support making an accessory that turns semi's into autos illegal because you don't want to give your political opponents anything for fear of what they will want next... Well that doesn't make very much sense does it?

    I am a gun owner and defender of our 2nd amendment rights. On the other hand I don't want some untrained moron wielding a machine gun without any safeguards. If we put this question to the founders today I think they would agree. That's why the Constitution allows for amendments its not cast in stone. Its very difficult, by design, the founders did not want us making knee jerk changes to the Constitution but it allows for change and fine tuning.

    Fine I'll trade it for NYC allowing me to get a revolver without waiting for 6 months and paying $600 or so in fees.

    And that's just to keep it in my apartment, they deny CCW's out of hand unless you are a cop, a retired cop, or own a business involving lots of cash, or have a buddy at city hall.

    How about we trade bump stocks for national CCW reciprocity?

    Do you think the ban may have saved lives by diminishing the firepower from crazy shooters? Putting single shot weapons into their hands instead of bullet spraying uzi's...

    English not your main language? The written word is clear the INTENT was not to hamstring the citizenry with a need to belong to a militia to exercise their second amendment rights.
