This sounds like common sense ...

As far as that goes, I don't really know what I'm advocating for other than they don't screw with the Bill of Rights anymore than they already have. All I can judge any of this on is how I feel about my rights, and those in the circles that I run. The fact that I would have no intention of ever committing such an act as a mass shooting, and with that being said wouldn't want to have any restrictions placed on me because I know what I am and I'm not capable of. It infuriates me to think that my rights can and will be restricted based on somebody else's Behavior. Someone else who should take complete responsibility for their own actions, and not have to punish 99% of the population because of their disregard for human life.

I think it's a slippery slope. For the amount of citizens we have that obey the law, with as many guns as they own, with as many rounds of ammunition as they possess, vs the number of nutjobs who carry out mass shootings the ratios do not add up. The overwhelming majority of citizens respect the laws and are responsible gun owners.

What? 50 60, 70 years ago homosexuality was considered a mental illness. Probably still is, to some people today. What if 50 years from now, Christianity is considered a mental illness, or being religious at all? I think we've both surf the web enough to see somebody at some point or another claim that being religious is a mental illness even today. I think it's a slippery slope hinging someone's right on another person's interpretation of what is mentally ill or mentally same based on societal norms for this decade, for this generation or whatever.
