As a gun owner myself, I feel we need intelligent gun regulations. I passed a test to drive a car and pilot my plane. My doctor passed a test to practice medicine ect. I would like rational gun laws passed in the same way to stop the mentally ill, folks on a terrorist list or people determined to be a threat to themselves or others from legally purchasing guns. I think you should have to explain why you need an assault rifle. Why is this so controversial? Why does the NRA get a pass?
