The conversation I woke up to this morning: "Why don't we just have laws against murder, robbery, rape, etc.? Oh wait, we do & that doesn't stop them either"
someone said "ameeennnn" I said "So do you suggest we take them away? Does that solve it?"
This person said "They ain't taking my guns away."
They ARE NOT taking your guns away. Yet. Biden/Obama made a proposal that bans magazines with over 10 bullets and bans assault rifles, ect. Of course that still has to go through Congress. I HOPE it does!!
Assault weapons should be reserved for military, only. Just like no one should own grenades or rocket launchers no one should own a weapon that can shoot 60 bullets in less than a minute. NO ONE. The safety of our people should come before stubborn WANTS.
Just because the guns didn't physically shoot themselves does NOT mean they should be accessible for civilians! Please stop talking about spoons and knives- We all know anything can hurt someone that doesn't mean we lie down and do nothing about all the mass shootings that happened last year. Stop being ignorant and start caring about HUMAN life over your possessions. People protected themselves adequately before assault weapons and they aren't petitioning to take away hand guns or shot guns.
As for focusing more on mental illness; that is a part of their proposal! BUT 1 in 5 Americans suffer from some variety of mental ailment, I am bipolar. K is not! So if K got a gun would it not stand to reason that I also, the one with a "mental ailment", also has a gun. So do you take his right away or say that I am not that wrong kind of crazy? There will be cracks- that doesn't mean that we shouldn't try just there will be a lot of problems with it at first.
