I don't get you guys. We already have gun control in this country. You cannot go out and buy or own certain weapons already and no one seemed to whine about the 2nd then. No one (except a few extremists) is asking for a total gun ban. Just to tone it down a bit which we have done before in the past. Perhaps a limit on amount of guns owned and restricting certain types of firearms. If you want to buy a weapon in the mistaken belief it protects your family, then knock yourself out. Most "gun control" advocates don't have an issue with that. What we have an issue with is Mom and Pop owning a big bag of semi-auto weapons and stashing it under their bed so their mentally deranged or clinically depressed son can get access to them.
