One addition to the omnibus bill your editorial endorses would be a ban on the sale and use of any rifle, handgun, or shotgun that contains a semiautomatic mechanism (allowing the firearm to discharge spent rounds automatically and load new, live rounds automatically with each pull of the trigger). Such a ban also avoids Second Amendment challenges, since it doesn’t affect guns per se, but rather the inclusion of a mechanism that allows them to be capable of inflicting human casualties on a scale that tragically has become all too common.

Boston Globe is behind a paywall, period. IF YOU TURN OFF PRIVACY FEATURES, i.e., allow them to grab whatever they want to grab from your browser, then they allow a couple of "free" articles per day before locking you out.
