"I stand out among my conservative friends in disliking guns. I favor reasonable restrictions on the Second Amendment, such as bans on fully automatic weapons, background checks for purchases and forbidding the sale of guns to those with histories of mental illness or criminality."
No you don't, you don't stand out at all. Unless you legally purchase a federal tax stamp, you are already banned from having a fully automatic weapon. Background checks are already a fact, but, the left resists, at every turn, all efforts to create a searchable data base for the mentally ill.
