4. Your call for the confiscation

of legal firearms is straight out of the NRA "fear" handbook aimed at selling more guns, but thanks for your concern. There will never be a mass "confiscation" of guns as the Second Amendment does not allow it, and REAL gun control advocates aren't calling for any form of mass confiscation. A ban on the production and sale of automatic large capacity (so-called assault) rifles is a plank in the Democratic Party platform, and most reasonable Americans agree with that stance.

The immediate answer to our gun violence epidemic is tighter control of who can have a gun (stringent local and national background checks) and where they can carry it (no open or concealed public carry). Average Americans have absolutely no need for rapid firing weapons, and their manufacture and sale should be tightly controlled. You want a gun? Keep it at home, or while you're hunting, or at the range.

I'm not sure if you're trolling this Group, or just horribly misinformed.
