As for the guns themselves, I'd like to see technology knocked back like 100 years. Handguns have to be revolvers, rifles have to be bolt- or lever-action, shotguns have to be pumped.

I made the same point way back in the dawn of this thread. Rather than trying to chase the tail of banning classifications (which makes the "assault weapon" ban such a mess), I think we'd be better served to just lay out what parameters are legal.

I suppose we'll have to wait for the final draft, but I'm not seeing anything addressing mental health, or how to help keep crazy people away from other people's guns.

President Obama's plan to reduce gun violence calls for long-awaited rules requiring insurance companies to cover mental health services.

Obama said his administration would finalize rules on mental health parity, the requiring of mental healthcare to be covered the same way as physical healthcare. The regulations have languished since 2008, and Senate Democrats had called on Obama to push the rules forward as part of his gun-control recommendations.
The White House plan calls for bolstering access to mental health services in schools and encouraging teachers to intervene early when they believe a student needs counseling.
