There is a big debate about gun control after the shooting in Connecticut last week. All sorts of people are chiming in with ideas about what gun control should be in America. So, since everyone else is chiming in I thought I would as well.
Here is my very simple solution for controlling guns and mass shootings in the U.S..
01. No guns that fire more than 6 rounds may be sold. If guns are supposed to be for either self-defense or hunting then why would anyone need a gun that fires more than 6 shots before needing to reload, right?
02. No guns or rifles that can be loaded with magazines or clips can be sold. If someone needs to stop and reload after 6 shots then it would be almost impossible to pull off a mass shooting.
03. The sale of bullets should be regulated and the number of rounds any person can buy should be limited. If one only has access to a very limited amount of ammunition then that would also make it almost impossible to pull off a mass shooting.
There you go, very simple, right? People who want guns for protection or sport can still have them. But, those who would use guns to do harm would be very limited in how much damage they could do.
Hopefully the Federal government along with State governments around the country will act and pass reasonable and effective legislation to halt the proliferation of these weapons of mass destruction.
What do you think of my plan?
