Gun ban realities the govt and media don't get:
Bans on semi-auto weapons and large gun clips only outlaw the sale of new ones. If people own pre-ban firearms and clips, they are legal, and there are millions of them out there.
Background checks are a joke, too. Becus the paperwork goes to a govt intitiy, guess what? they are about 1 year behind filing them and some gun shops archive them for up to a year and destroy them, pocketing the fees. When the feds start nosing around, there is an un-explained fire and a million gun transactions go up in smoke.
A national gun-owner data-base is un-constitutional. That is what the Nazi's did and then knew whose weapons to take away.
