I think that gun-control is a perfectly legitimate stance, and one I whole-heartedly agree with.

Now, i'm not saying that they should be banned outright, as criminal elements will always be able to get their hands on things that the civilian populace are denied, but tight controls on certain weapons is certainly a step in the right direction.

When the Articles of Confederation were thrown out and the Constitution was created, the reason why the 2nd Amendment was put in place was so that a situation like that would hopefully never happen again (excessive taxation to the point people couldn't keep their land and homes).
That was 250 years ago - I don't think that an armed revolt would arise from gun control.
