The current political and social discussion of gun control is heated. Now my opinion is gun control is a good thing. Don't get me wrong I am not saying take all firearms away, because a large portion of Americans would not accept it. Just do background checks and waiting periods for everyone, even at gun shows. Also no homeowner needs an assault rifle or uzi, that is overkill for home protection or hunting. These would be steps that would at least make me and others who believe in gun control feel safer.
