I realize you need to periodically update, I have no problems with that. The issue I have with this whole debate is they should be looking at the mental health aspect and ways we can improve that. Instead we're looking to ban clip sizes which won't make one lick of difference.

No, that's not what I take from this at all. Clip size bans might have an effect, I'm no expert in this stuff so I can't make a definitive statement and I doubt you are either which calls your conclusion into question. It goes without saying that mental health issues need to be tackled but it's the same types of voters who don't want health care that also don't want any gun control. There's no reason we can't do both either.

Most of the ideas being considered for legislation right now are just worthless and will only affect law-abiding gun owners. It's political pandering and grandstanding. They're not going to make anyone safer.

That's really my problem with this stuff in general, it brings out the people who to the extreme of their own ideals and politicians just go into bandaid mode. Measured responses and moderate voters largely get shut out.
