Background checks are already required to buy a gun. What I do with it once I own it is the question.
Perhaps, or maybe you sell that gun to someone normally upstanding and they get caught shooting a deer, or heck, get pulled over on the way home. And maybe they're more than happy to help cut a deal.
An owner caught at home with eight or more bullets in a magazine could face a misdemeanor charge.
"It is well-balanced, it protects the Second Amendment," said Senate Republican leader Dean Skelos of Long Island. "And there is no confiscation of weapons, which was at one time being considered.

I also think they should do a better job of arresting the people that fail the background checks that happen now. A substantial portion of those people probably shouldn't be walking the streets just due to stupidity...

Neither is taking away their big forks and spoons so they only have small ones. No amount of regulation or litigation is going to change the intent and actions of the person in question. In 3 pages, I don't recall seeing any support for these ideas. I believe this is because they do nothing to fix the actual problems. Neither will whatever BS executive order Oblah blah and Bonehead come up with. Given that you work in a college system, I would have guessed that you would come up with something more related to the root cause of unstable students turning into mass murderers as you are closer to the college culture than most here. Studying the correlation between these people and bullying, social exclusion and mental defect will do far more to fix these problems than any executive disorder. I understand that you said these cases were not your focus, however, this thread only popped up after the shooting in Sandy Hook. That is not coincidence.
