His focus for gun control is to get the mentally ill registered, and makes sense. Most mass shootings are the result of a mentilly ill person, not the gun. As we all know.
-Registering mentally ill is first priority in gun control. (Nov 2015)
-2nd Amendment advocate: NRA rating changed from "F" to "A". (Aug 2015)
-Keep existing restrictions, but tighten up on terrorist guns. (Nov 1996)
-Cool off before making new gun laws after Littleton. (May 1999)
-More parenting better than more gun laws. (May 1999)
-Voted YES on decreasing gun waiting period from 3 days to 1. (Jun 1999)
Opposes restrictions on the right to bear arms. (Aug 2010
This is what I'm talking about. Kasich wants to register those who are deemed "mentally ill" to prevent them from getting guns. That is an unconstitutional infringement of the 2nd Amendment.
Who determines mental illness? A doctor? What if the doctor is wrong? Its happened before. Homosexuality was once considered mental illness.

I disagree as to Sanders as I'm certain his socialistic policies would smother the nation in debt and cause the folks who do the hiring in our country to lay off the very people Sanders wants to help the most when corporations and small businesses find a diminution of their bottom line profits. Tax and spend and income redistribution kills the entrepreneurial spirit upon which our country was built by the New England Merchants and our founding fathers more than 200 years ago. Socialism may work elsewhere but it won't work in our country!
Kasich is clearly the best candidate out there for President and Marco Rubio would make an excellent choice for VEEP on a ticket led by Kasich. That ticket would defeat the dishonest Clinton.
Cruz would be almost as poor a choice for the office (as would be the dictator, Trump), given the said Cruz's plans to increase the taxes on middle class seniors and to slap a 19 per cent Federal Sales Tax on the country to make up the revenue short fall that will result from his flat tax.
