  •  IMHO, less. (4+ / 0-)

    I think you should have a demonstrable need to keep one in your home, and a demonstrated ability to use. You have to have a special licence to drive a semi,  why not a semi-automatic rifle. If you only want it for hunting, why not keep it locked up at the police, and pick it up just before your weekend of fun in the woods?

    Either than, or charge $10,000 per bullet.

    •  Haha! I didn't state my position ... (3+ / 0-)

      ... very clearly, HugoDog! I mean there should be no special right to own a gun, and there should be every reasonable limit on restricting them (i.e. the whole panoply that includes strict background checks, no open or concealed carry because it is crazy as we're not Dodge City, closing the gun show loophole, magazine restrictions, registration, and on and on). I agree with all your restrictions.

      I will try to be more clear in the future. I'm sorry.

      Rand Paul is to civil liberties as the Disney Channel is to subtle and nuanced acting. Ron Paul thinks he's a wit, but he's only half right.
