Gun-Control is not black and white

Gun Control does not mean "ban all guns."

I hope more people can understand this in light of recent events.
There is a lot of grey area. For example, gun control could mean, ban all semi-automatic weapons. It could mean creating more difficulty in obtaining weapons. It could place a limit on the amount of weapons one can own.

The second amendment was created when guns could fire one shot and it required some time to reload. Blindly holding on to the amendment just because "the founding fathers said it" does not take into account how much the world has changed.

I hope that people who want to keep their right to bear arms will start making more informed, logical arguments aside from quoting bumper stickers and saying things like the government gives more rights to criminals than law-abiding citizens.
