    Change the definition of an assault weapon as one having two “military rifle features” to one.

    Ban Internet sales of assault weapons.

    Make private sales of assault weapons between anyone besides family members subject to outside background checks.

    Make it a misdemeanor to own a magazine of more than 7 bullets (the previous limit was 10). Persons owning higher ammunition magazines would have a year to sell them.

    Require therapists to report to the state mentally ill patients who they believe may use guns illegally. Authorities could confiscate those patients’ weapons.

    Increase sentences for gun crimes.
