 I'm all for stricter background checks and making sure they are preformed every time a gun changes hands and stricter mental health checks. That's a good thing. But banning a certain type of weapon that's almost never used in crimes is rediculous. A high cap mag ban seems to make sense but it doesn't because criminals will not obey this so it will just put us law abiding citizens at a sever disadvantage against the criminals. Most crimes are preformed by criminals that don't follow laws to begin with so why do you think they will start now? I will not vote for anyone that supports the disarming of law abiding tax paying citizens.
