Gun-toting leftist for sanity – Let’s meet halfway

Like too many law-abiding folks that man, Jake Jones, believes that taking away semi-automatic rifles is a slippery slope… that it will be followed directly by sidearms like my dad’s .45 caliber Smith & Wesson. My shotguns. And then all guns.

We cannot allow this. None of us. Left or right, black or white. None of us. Ill or healthy, poor or wealthy. Our lives and our country depend on it.

There are real terrors in the world.

Let’s get on with the real bad guys.

Let’s…
1. Surrender our big clips and AK/AR assault weapons FOR TWICE THEIR VALUE, TAX FREE.
2. Go no further!

Outcomes…
A. *Fewer* mass murders, but some.
B. Self-defense, hunting, competition.

This is important. Let’s get this done and get focused on the very big problems… hunger, war, poverty,…

We can defend ourselves and our families without AR-47s. The NRA is not the enemy.

    Am with you in principle, but I amend your Point 1 to “Let’s stop first sale of big clips and AK/AR assault weapons”.

    I worry about creating a market for existing big clips and assault weapons: Formally setting the price at 2x will only mean criminal elements buy them at 3x or 4x. (Let us face it, most people will sell to the highest bidder.)

    An alternative is to cover the seconds sale (of existing big clips and assault weapons) under a universal background check. This way, at least law-abiding weapon owners won’t sell to criminals, and the market will still dictate the price.
