There's no reason why a responsible, law abiding licensed gun owner should be limited in what they can purchase.

Is there a reason a gun owner needs to be licensed? I own several guns but I am not "licensed" and I am not breaking any laws wither.
The problem with people who own lots of guns is that they then to lose track of them or in most cases, they get stolen and fall into the hands of criminals.

You hide in a grey box so you don't have any accountability troll.
Since when does using a registered account make you accountable? You're the same old "no credibility" Ralff with a different screen name.

Anyways, I'm not here to prolong a sh*tfest with you so you can have the last word and then lets get back to the topic.

Gang Members are licking their chops in anticipation of no threat that Homeowners may be armed. Places like the pathetic remains of Gang and Illegal infested Los Angeles will be a horror story for decent law abiding citizen families if the scum are free of fear of guns in the hands of homeowners.

No.
However; "The problem with people who own lots of guns is that they then to lose track of them or in most cases, they get stolen and fall into the hands of criminals." is a wildazz totally bogus statement.
I will go out on a limb here and say the government agency that wants to control guns would fit in that statement far more than private owners. For instance, you'll have to come up with quite a few specific cases to cover "Fast and Furious" alone.
His statement makes sense. The more of something you have, the easier it is to lose track of it.

Guns are no exception.

Below is a perfect example of a man with just one gun who almost lost it.

School security guard in Michigan leaves gun in bathroom, officials say

Officials say a recently hired security officer left a firearm unattended in a Michigan charter school bathroom, local media reported.

School officials at The Chatfield School in Lapeer, Mich., told mlive.com the officer left an unloaded weapon in a restroom "for a few moments" on Monday. No children were put in danger or exposed to the handgun, school director Matt Young told mlive.com .

Your fear mongering is overrated. The deranged right wing radical domestic terrorist is more of a threat to society that any illegal or gang member!!!

Before you open your trap how about checking how many guns, drugs, and alcohol are found in Michigan school search's. The security guard is severely out gunned in most inner city schools.
