Armed or violent felons, drug addicts, the mentally unstable, and those on “no-fly” lists will not be allowed buy or own guns. Most spree killers were mentally unstable and bullied or shunned. A modicum of empathy by others would have prevented most spree killings. Relationship class in K-12 schools, and for adults at night and on weekends, will stop bullying and identify the mentally unstable before they turn to guns as well as knives or cars or bombs, etc. Objective professional staff will be available on campus.
Fully automatic rifles and “Bump Stocks” will be prohibited. New safety, handling and accuracy classes, and both written and live shooting tests will ensure all gun purchasers can safely handle their guns, and hit what they aim at. “Carry permits” will require doing so under pressure. People who are reckless or fail to follow protocols or falter under pressure will not be allowed to carry guns in public.
Anti-gun folks should take this deal because they lack the votes to outlaw guns which is why candidates, nonprofits and protests have all failed to pass restrictions. Most Americans support this check on government and criminal power, and won’t give up their guns without a civil war.

Valentine put all our issues into one piece of national legislation.
90% of Americans can get what we want most by compromising on issues we care less about.
We can now combine our power behind a single common goal and finally get what we’ve wanted for decades.
The amendments clause of our current constitution allows us to dictate solutions to our politicians and force them to vote on it.
Valentine spent 50,000 hours over 45 years adding solutions to all the modern problems our old Constitution fails to cover while keeping 90%, our foundations and rights intact.
