    how about this for a compromise:

    end background checks for rifles/shotguns.......but require background checks, 10-round limit for magazines, and limit purchases to one per month, for ALL handgun purchases.

    1. We get universal background checks on all gun purchases, including gun shows, private sales, absolutely anywhere that guns are sold. Convicted felons are ineligible to buy guns, and the FBI is alerted if one tries to buy one. Anyone convicted of domestic violence is ineligible, as is anyone who's mentally unstable. It becomes illegal to sell any gun without a background check on the buyer.
    2. The 1986 ban on civilians owning automatic weapons is repealed. The import of foreign-made assault rifles (such as the Russian AK-47, the Swiss SG 550, and the Israeli Uzi) is legalized. A person is no longer required to remanufacture a foreign assault rifle, including at least 10 American-made parts. He may purchase one from a foreign factory with all foreign parts, and it may include an automatic feature. (It still must be sent to a gun dealer, not directly to him, and there still must be a background check.)

    So, the gun control people get #1, the gun enthusiasts get #2. Vote if you're for this.
    #1 goes to far, #2 not far enough.

    Not so sure about that. AR-15's, Kalashnikovs, Sig 550's etc are also rifles. Not something you want the criminal element having free access to. I'd say no checks on .22 cal firearms. The cartridge itself limits the effective capacity of a magazine, and I don't see them as any legitimate threat to anything except marmots and paper targets.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Umm, perhaps depending on what exactly we're talking about. But more specifically, no to the limits you proposed.

    I will never be able to understand how a person convinces themselves this is logical and reality based rational. Its broken logic.

    no guns outside ones home?! Im very thankful on a national level nothing like this will ever come to pass.

    uhm this doesnt even seem like a compromise. The limits are too much and pretty pointless.

    Like I said 100 Times Im fine with background checks as long as they are pretty instant but the reality is the impact to prevent crimes will be little to nil.

    1.3 million felons and others who have lost their right to own a gun, were prevented from buying a gun due to background checks.

    that's a pretty large impact.

    We have 300+ million people. Its not actually that large of an impact.
