“I definitely think it should be regulated. Individuals should have to go through extensive screening to obtain a gun and also renew their license to obtain a gun.”

“I’m not too versed on how the gun control laws are right now. But I think that people should have the right to bear arms. Obviously there are some weapons that are for military use only, like automatic weapons. But your basic revolvers and 9 mm—people should be able to own those.”

Lyn Palme, 60, librarian, Walnut Creek

“I think it’s way too lenient now. I would like to see very strict gun control; no magazines, no automatic weapons.”
