To be clear, I would like to see no ban placed on gun ownership and no laws changed. I think it is unconstitutional and it will not cure the ills driving this desire. But, if we have to give on something, and President Obama and Wayne LaPierre put me on speaker phone telling me they can't seem to get to common ground, here is what I would suggest. Let me know if you like none of it, all of it or some of it or have other ideas. Allow teachers to conceal or open carry in all schools. Or if this is unpaletable, allow teachers to carry non-lethal tasers. Provide training to all teachers who choose to conceal carry or open carry. Provide well trained security for every school. I agree with Wayne. We gaurd every other important thing in our life with a gun, why not our kids. We gaurd or president, our money, our banks, some private buildings, movie stars, airports, etc. But this can't be TSA level professional. It has to be someone with real training. Maybe a local law enforcement rotation. Mandatory security upgrades for all schools. Ensuring entrances are controlled, there is security, bullet proof glass in the front and panic buttons in all rooms. Mandatory security doors for each classroom that can be locked from the inside in the case of an emergency. Provide a law that allows schools to engage public volunteers who are trained to provide free security for local schools. Provide a means for a tax deduction of the time spent by the citizen as a charitable contribution. Include a tax on all gun purchases and gun transfers of $25 (+/- to get it to fund right - I am not stuck on a number. It could be $100) to pay for security and upgrades in every school and training for teachers who carry. Add a small tax of 10% for every ammo sale as well. Limit magazines to 30 rounds. This one you might have to give up and go to 10 rounds. Not sure you can avoid that at this point. All sales require FFL. No gun show loop holes (I know there is no loop hole in Oregon, but in other states there are) and no FTF sales with out FFL. Require standardized FFL background checks against a db maintained at the national level. Mandatory 1 week waiting period on purchases. As a fall back to resistance, you could ban semi-automatic rifles that have evil features and limit ownership to people who belong to US approved local 3rd line defense militias that follow certain strict training regiments including annual training with national gaurd or US military. Those militias could have the ability to report any individual they feel may not have a solid mental foundation to the US db for flagging as potential restriction. So, you would at worst case only need to convince a militia of your peers that you were mentally sound. I just think there should be an AR/AK & hi cap magazine ownership path for us sane people. Not sure if would really help since the armed forces have crazy people too. This militia part is just a brain storming idea. Not sure if I like it or not. Mulling it over.
