Some I could go with

  1. 1.    Support the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans
  2. 2.    Support citizens' rights to possess firearms for hunting, shooting sports, defense, and other lawful and legitimate purposes
  3. 3.    Reinstate and strengthen a prospective federal ban on assault weapons
  4. 4.    Reinstate a prospective federal ban on assault magazines
  5. 5.    Require a background check for every gun sale, while respecting reasonable exceptions for cases such as gifts between family members and temporary loans for sporting purposes
  6. 6.    Strengthen the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) database
  7. 7.    Prosecute those prohibited buyers who attempt to purchase firearms and others who violate federal firearm laws
  8. 8.    Pass legislation aimed specifically at cracking down on illegal gun trafficking and straw-purchasing
  9. 9.    Restore funding for public safety and law enforcement initiatives aimed at reducing gun violence
  10. 10. Support initiatives that prevent problems before they start
  11. 11. Close the holes in our mental-health system and make sure that care is available for those who need it
  12. 12. Help our communities get unwanted and illegal guns out of the hands of those who don't want them or shouldn't have them
  13. 13. Support responsible gun ownership
  14. 14. Take steps to enhance school safety
  15. 15. Address our culture's glorification of violence seen and heard though our movie screens, television shows, music and video games (Age Appropriate)   
I'm fine with 1 & 2 but 3, 4, and 5 contradict 1 & 2.  6, If the information is not being put in, it should be (Hint: do you're  jobs)  7 & 8 It does make sense to go after those breaking the law.   9, Not just gun violence, how about any violence?. 10, How do you prevent a problem before it happens? 11, It does makes sense to close the mental health loopholes, and report those that may well be dangerous to themselves & others. 12, Let the communities sort out how to dispose of unwanted firearms themselves, it does not have to be a federal program.  13, Support responsible ownership, by opening more public ranges, and encouraging training, 14, Yes schools should be safe places, and we need to recognize that mature licensed adults, should be allowed to carry arms in schools, parents, teachers, staff, etc.  15, I'm not against violence in movies or games, but I really do not think that 7-13 year old's should be watching people being butchered on the silver screen, or blowing people's heads off in video games, any more than they should be watching adult movies.
