OK a few points of reference:
I live in CA
I am a gun owner and am not a huge fan of the idea of significant new gun legislation.
However, I have little issue with the current state of CA law (the testing provisions that make it annoying/difficult to get many limited issue items irks me but such is life).
I am doing my best to set aside my biases to discuss what exactly does everyone mean by “common sense” and “reasonable” gun laws. I feel like people throw these terms around to feel like they are doing something but have zero idea what might work. People want something done, but they dont know what, thus this phrasing is tossed out. I as a gun owner would most likely have little issue with a few changes, however I am not going to go out of my way to be harder on myself at the ballot box either.
So the debate:
What should some examples of these provisions/laws/regulations be?
Just as an example of my feelings, any new laws should be:
Objective, not subject to the whims of someone processing a registration.
Address the actual problem (idiots and assholes getting guns and or shooting up a place)
Not turn an existing gun owner into a criminal.
should not cost an existing gun owner significant additional money.
An example I can get behind: locked storage requirements, a gun should be stored in a way it is very difficult for a child or guest to easily aquire and or use it. Something as simple as a locked metal or heavy plastic box, like one of those little cash boxes you can get for like $7 on amazon or a basic hard rifle case that can be locked.
Another example that has aspects of the gun control pipe dream an option to aquire:
A heavy duty federal registration/permit/package:
Person goes through full background checks, psych screening, range testing, colonoscopy, taste in music, post a liability bond, whatever.
However with that enhanced evaluation/screening/ you are given a 5 year registration that entitles you to:
A Federal level concealed and or open carry permit good in all 50 states. (subject to existing rules WRT courthouses, federal buildings, etc.)
A Federal firearms Dealer/collector licence, bypassing waiting periods, deal in/posses automatic weapons, extended magazines, silencers, body armor, etc.
Anything else that may arise as useful to gun owners I am not considering but should be available to those who have been subjected to such scrutiny.
Renewal requires a repeat of the review process.
