But it 'exempts over 900 ... weapons'? Isn't that like outlawing driving unless one drives one of 900 models of car? Sam, am I missing something here? (It has been known...) Surely you at least need to ban the people who do not have 'legitimate' reasons for buying these things from buying them; you can't just reduce the pool of guns anyone can buy by a fraction and expect it to really change anything. The need for background checks is at least a cursory nod at sanity. I suppose it's the ghost of a baby-step of a start on the long road.
