In my OPINION semi auto weapons should Not be banned. I believe stricter gun laws will only keep these types of firearms out of the hands of law abiding citizens. If a criminal wants a firearm to commit a crime, they are not goning to go to a gun shop where these laws would be in place, but aquire them illegally from someone who would care less about new gun laws. I do think certain gun laws should be changed such as the gun show loop hole which allows private sellers to sell fireams without the required background check normally required to purchase a firearm anywhere else. I am going to leave links below to the story you do not hear about in main steam media including how a concealed carry permit holder stopped the shooter in the Clackamas mall shooting and a video explaining. Furthermore, I also believe that a mental/psychological exam should be required to purchase any type of firearm.
