We don't want to confiscate your guns, we're willing to meet you halfway with a manditory buyback:
The biggest problem with this approach, though, is that it tiptoes around the one reform that could really make a difference, but that Americans would never accept: Mandatory gun buybacks. That's what Australia did, after its own version of Newtown.The Aussie population is now largely disarmed and if you're large and equipped with a table leg or a table knife, you're king of the hill.
For myself, I'm old, small, and feeble. Ask anyone. I like the idea of having a gun to keep things on a level keel until some young, healthy, strong fellow in a blue suit can show up and start the paperwork.
