I don't know. I`d vote for a pro gun control candidate so long as his other views were in line with mine. I don`t like the fact that crazy people can buy assault weapons. I think most people would agree with that sentiment. What the solution is I don`t know.

@madest: Out of curiosity, do you propose we do this at the state or federal level? While some people might suggest that the difference is negligible and merely semantic, some of us considerate this the greatest of issues.
Suppose half the people are for stricter gun laws and half are not. Certainly these differences will be represented in an area-specific pattern. No matter which course is taken then, half the people lose (if done federally).
My point is this - if the folks in Texas want guns, let them; if the folks in California don't want them, then let that state ban them.
In this way, there is the opportunity for most people to find an area that shares similar beliefs as they. Those states that have the best system will excel, and others will eventually copy.
I guess what I`m saying is that, although I`m opposed to gun laws, I would be fine if they were implemented by the individual states.

he did not have 'fully automatic weapons`. ---------- No but your right to own industrial fertilizer was infringed and you didn`t seem to mind that. Look I`m not saying I know what the answer is but limits on gun ownership much like those applied during the Brady bill years should be re-considered. It would have changed the outcome of the Gabrielle Giffords attack and it may have put a kink in the Aurora attack.
