I strongly believe in the right to bear arms (and arm bears)... BUT!

I don't think anyone should be able to acquire assault/military style weapons. I think the only weapons that should be available to the average person are handguns, shotguns, and single-shot rifles.

And I don't think anyone should be able to stockpile weapons. Each person only gets to have 2 of each of the above.

I live in a town that some people have called the murder capital of the world (New Orleans), and I often walk around at night, but I've never in 50+ years felt any need to buy a gun. And I purposely don't buy a gun for my own and my family's protection.

We had Mardi Gras the other day, and we couldn't get through it without some shooting incidents near the parades... and one guy is dead from it.

No one needs automatic weapons. The argument for gun control is self defence. A revolver, rifle or shotgun should be adequate.

We are allowed shotguns in the UK for agriculture reasons, e.g. putting down livestock.

There should also be a register, requiring medical disclosure and a 'referee of good standing'. If there are concerns, then a licensing authority should be able to investigate it.
