4. Do you support a federal assault weapons ban? Why or why not? What other federal gun control measures would you support?

No, many people use assault weapons for large game hunting. Assault weapons should be used for limited usages; such as hunting and the protection of family. However, tougher application and legislation processes should be placed, to ensure assault weapons are not put in the hands of convicted criminals and mentally incapacitated individuals. Gun owners at gun shows should have individuals and or groups present multiple identification and complete a thorough application and include a fee.

I agree with the current immigration reform. However, if immigrants have high class level felonies and misdemeanors they need to be deported and returned to their country.
