    Fortunately, that is not what the majority of the public wants.

    Poor pitiful gun fanatics being harassed by people so ignorant that they place a higher priority on human life than they do your ability to save a few bucks at the target range.

    If human life was a priority to you, you would want to come up with solutions that might actually WORK, because as we ALL know, banning things doesn't work, as has been proven time and time again throughout history.

    that is a dishonest choice

    you cannot come close to proving that our rights cost anyone life

    I can prove that the idiocy of gun free zones has lead to massive deaths

    excellent point. the anti gun extremists tried to prove that the clinton gun bans actually helped. they couldn't. not one study was able to show that the clinton gun bans stopped any crime.

    Government control worked for machine guns, tanks, and sawed off shotguns. And apparently you missed that they are also proposing to close the private gun sales loophole that allows gun sales without a background check in 3/4 of the states.

    The 1994 ban did not take away gun owner's rights, or it would have been challenged in court.

    The question is does it cut down on murders?

    Since that is where most illegal gun purchases occur, it undoubtedly will cut down on murders. That is why police associations support it.
