The problem with this debate in the end is symbolism over substance. NY just passed a very restrictive gun control law that limits the number of bullets per mag/clip to be only 7. How many criminals are gonna give a rat's ass what these laws say? Those who'd trade their liberty for false promises of security deserve neither and will lose both. FTR, lest my position be twisted out of context, I'm fine with certain regulations (reqs to take gun safety courses, that people have to safely store their guns, etc..). I just recognize that creating laws that often go unenforced/are unenforceable is symbolic bs meant to appeal to emotion and little else. Btw, I'm less worried about some militia guy shooting me in a gun free zone like the post office than I am about a drunken illegal hitting me when I'm on the road.
