- Simple enough. Accept that the 2nd Amendment allows weapons. But, the 2nd Amendment is circa 1792. Judge Scalia, Alito, and others have suggested that the Constitution is to be read and maintained for the date passed.
So, we limit weapons to a type and nature of 1792. This means single shot weapons, with loading mechanisms of that era. All others are limited the operations of the government militia, as we have no legal citizens' militia.
Sorry folks who bought these weapons, you will be violating the hopeful new laws if you fail to follow turn in/buy out or destruction laws. We can't effect better mental health, including eradication of glorification of violence and use of these weapons in movies, games, etc. We have another amendment, the 1st that wisely allows unlimited expression.
Making armed camps of schools is not desirable for the mental health of the children, IMHO > a killer around every corner.
Criminals > get the criminals off the streets. Spare no punishment, behind bars, on work details, and fine the nth degree. It won't be easy, but hard decisions and choices seem to be hard for our society, what with the Republicans opposed to any meaningful legislation on almost any public problem.
