As far as the rest of what you wrote, I don't know....nothing has been put forward yet that isn't wholly to one side of the spectrum I just mentioned...
No one of serious consequence is asking to ban anything with a trigger. Guns meant for massive death in warfare? Yes. But that is also off the table along with everything else. Boehner isn't trying to find common ground and the NRA doesn't want a stronger ATF. They are just waiting and hoping that the media frenzy will die down and nothing will get done. Until it happens again. Which it unfortunately will.
