Here is MY "middle ground" proposal.
Repeal the NFA and the GCA, move the BATFE back to the treasury department and out of the enforcement business.
Force the "Anti's" focus away from guns and plant it face down in the actual problem, (mentally challenged and violent criminals), control those two aspects better and most of the gun problems will fade.
I for one, do not see how increasing the restrictions on law abiding gun owners access to these inanimate objects will curb those that have no problem with stealing or buying from the black market, coincidentally, two venues not affected by controls.
Where there's a will, I want to be in it.
