There is no need for the general public to purchase assault style rifles and weapons with high capacity magazines. None. Both the Republicans and Democrats need to come together and ban the sale of such weapons. And while they are at it, institute a federal background check, that works, on those purchasing any weapon so that law abiding citizens can purchase guns. Make it like getting a passport or Global Entry Card. This is a sensible way of protecting the U.S. populations constitutional right to bear arms and to regulate what weapons are available to the public.

It’s really that simple and if Congress can’t do this quickly, then they should be replaced with individuals that have a backbone to get work done on behalf of voters and not special interest organizations or businesses.

Yeah, it is that simple.
