Response to Nasty Jack (Reply #7)

35. Ummm... OK

 

1. Ban all assault or assault-type weapons
Define "Assault Or Assault Type Weapons" please


2. Ban all high-capacity magazines over 5 rounds
Why 5? Why not 2? Or 1? Or 15?
Heller v DC
(f) None of the Court’s precedents forecloses the Court’s interpretation.
Neither United States v. Cruikshank, 92 U. S. 542, 553, nor
Presser v. Illinois, 116 U. S. 252, 264–265, refutes the individualrights
interpretation. United States v. Miller, 307 U. S. 174, does not
limit the right to keep and bear arms to militia purposes, but rather
limits the type of weapon to which the right applies to those used by
the militia, i.e., those in common use for lawful purposes. Pp. 47–54.

Looks to me as though if the Militia can have it, so can Civillians.
Also - The MOST COMMONLY used firearm in the entire world, the Glock 19, carries 15 rounds.
What make > 5 rounds "High Capacity"?

3. Universal background checks for all gun purchases
OK

4. Mandatory training for anyone owning a gun
Training to what degree or level.
I earn my living providing this training, but I feel what is mandated in CT is inadequate.
Could you please elaborate on what adequate training entails?

5. Mandatory state reporting of the mentally ill
This already exists. It doesn't work (obviously)

6. Federal registry of gun owners
Why? What does it accomplish?
