I think I did okay, though I might have sucked a little in the computer test

A.k.a. he won't solve any pressing problems. Maintaining the status quo just keeps kicking the can down the road, and our generation is already paying for it.
Personally, gun control is a major policy issue. And I don't know how willing I'd be to give that up to a democratic canidate who otherwise has good policies but wants to further curtail access to firearms.

Semi-automatic weapons should absolutely be banned. People should be required to go through a training program and there should be at least a month long wait period before being able to buy a gun (to prevent suicides). Anyone with violent criminal history or mental health problems (including depression) should not be allowed to buy weapons. Laws regulating how firearms are stored should also be implemented.
We're a special breed.
I agree with perhaps the lower half of that. Not the first, though
The only to reduce the quantity of firearms in the long term is to reduce the demand and therefore their production in the first place.
You're a weird breed. You have tens of thousands of people dying and yet there are people opposing stronger regulations.
Wasn't the second amendment written like, in the first few decades after the US independence? I could imagine that those were times which required people to be armed like that.
And if it's an amendment, doesn't this mean that the amendment itself could theoretically be amended?
Repeal 2nd amendment, replace with legislation that actually makes sense. Owning a weapon is not a basic human right IMO and the 2nd does not fit with the rest of the bill of rights.
Theoretically yes it can be repealed/amended
But theoretically it could.
My point of view is that while constitutions are important, if modifications are required, and if those modifications don't work against the principles of democracy, then the constitution should be modified. Just because something is a law it doesn't mean that it's good.
Othelos and Greater New Poland
I understand why some people feel the need for protection, but people who are pro-firearms need to deal with the associated societal costs just like pro-lifers should. Instead, they mostly ignore them.
