There are times I love Levy and times I don't. His basic thesis is this:

Reasonable persons should be able to fashion reasonable restrictions—a framework for gun control in the aftermath of Newtown—without violating core Second Amendment rights
He believes that banning standard-capacity pistol magazines would be a problematic thing, but that a ban on magazines over 20 rounds would encounter less "resistance." Of course, that would cover AR-15 and AKM magazines.

He also seems to accept universal background checks with some qualifications "because it would get us past this particular debate and let us concentrate on options that might be more productive."

Then he veers into drug legalization. Good grief.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
