Well I agree, we do need common sense gun laws.
For instance, if the barrel on my shotgun is over 18 inches it’s legal. If it’s 17 3/4 inches long I could face 10 years in jail and lose my right to own firearms. That makes no sense.
My car is required by law to have a noise suppressor on it so I don’t annoy the neighbors. My gun is forbidden by law from having one. That makes no sense.
In some states if my rifle has some extra plastic on it, it’s illegal. That makes no sense.
In some states if my pistol is a different color, it’s illegal. That makes no sense.
In some states it’s illegal for me to carry a gun. Criminals don’t obey the law, I do and am unarmed when attacked. That makes no sense.
In some states if my magazine holds ten rounds it’s legal. If it holds eleven it’s illegal. That makes no sense.
In some states if a restaurant makes 50% of its revenue from alcohol it’s legal for me to carry there. If it makes 51% revenue from alcohol it’s not legal for me to carry. That makes no sense.
In my home state it’s legal for me to carry a concealed handgun. It’s illegal for me to openly carry one. That makes no sense.
Some states/cities require you to lock up your firearms while in your own home, leaving you to fumble with locks during a home invasion where a criminal will not have his firearm locked. That makes no sense.
In some states it's legal to own a magazine which holds over 30 rounds, but any evidence of it ever being loaded or inserted into a firearm that it belongs to and I'm a criminal. That makes no sense.
If a machine gun was made in 1985 it is legal for me to own if I pay the tax on it. If it was made in 1987 it is illegal to own. That makes no sense.
Some states only allow you to buy one firearm per month. That makes no sense.
If my revolver uses black powder, it is not considered a firearm. If it uses smokeless powder it is a firearm. That makes no sense.
In most states you can apply for a concealed carry permit, Having to pass a full background check and in some cases being required to receive special training. In many cases that permit is only good in your own home state. Requiring you to take proper steps to unload and lock your legally owned firearm away before crossing state lines. That makes no sense.
So yes, PLEASE. Let’s have some common sense gun laws. We can start by getting rid of all the ones that make no sense.

Please feel free to share some more useless/retarded/WTF? gun laws in the comments! I had a few more I was going to notate, But they'd require a lot of writing to properly explain why exactly they're useless. That and some laws that pertain to firearms, such as some of the new ammo laws in effect and proposed.
