Everyone else is throwing out their opinion so I might as well too. Studies have shown that a very high percentage (idk the % but an article I read said it was like 85 or 90% or something) of weapons involved in gun related violent crimes are unregistered, meaning they did not buy their weapon from a licensed dealer, instead bought it illegally. Banning guns will not keep them out of the hands of someone trying to do harm with them, instead keep them out of the hands of people like me, a 4 year Marine Corps infantry vet. I carry a Colt M1911 everywhere I go. Yes it is registered, and yes I do have a license to carry.

Baseball bats are used for baseball. Rope is used for rope things. Knives are used for cutting things. the only thing that guns are used for are killing people, and marksmanship. Marksmanship can be accomplished with small caliber rounds like .22's and stuff. You don't need AK47's with armor piercing exploding rounds and grenade launchers for anything legal or ethical. I'm pretty sure everyone is fine if you do target practice with a .22 rifle, a small caliber shotgun for hunting, or a small caliber pistol for home defense, but fully automatic weapons, armor-piercing rounds, high-capacity magazines, and explosives really should be illegal.

man all these gun posts are really ridiculous. I mean I guess it's fine that anyone can buy a firearm, you know whether they're mentally stable or not. And let's not forget "2nd amendment muh freedums" yeah when the second amendment was written that was about having a standing militia, which in today's day in age isn't relevant. Let's also keep in mind that when they wrote that there were not any fully automatic, even semi-automatic weapons that were portable and able to more than once without reloading. "DUUUUR if guns are illegal that will only stop law abiding folks from having them not dem der criminals" well it seems to work well enough in other countries doesn't it?

Guns laws should at least be more strict. Not banned, but more strict. I mean knife laws here are pretty strict.

Maybe I don't know, have people undergo mental assessment, and make it a lot harder to get a gun. Maybe then less psychopaths would have guns. I mean I know a lot of people say "oh they were nice people really" but if anyone could find underlying psychological problems it'd be a professional. So make the assessment compulsory for getting a gun.

I think the main difference is the other items have other uses. Knife cutting vegetables, bat for baseball. I'm not sure what exactly he strangled him with so skip that one. Guns are made for shooting animals, or warfare. They are hunting weapons, used for killing. We don't use guns for simple everyday tasks, like a knife. Their only use is killing living things. The only other use for guns I can think of is competition.

Guns are a lot like bows and arrows. So why aren't bows and arrows illegal as well, they are used for killing (originally) and are used in competition , well because they are harder to use. A gun is a bow and arrow an idiot can pick up and use in a few minutes. It is very hard for someone to pick up a bow and arrow and become deadly with it. We can't add laws on idiots so they add laws on guns.

In my opinion the thing they should do is make it a lot harder to get guns and have many mental tests to test your mental stability before you can have a gun. Someone told me that in Israel (may have been a different country), you are limited to bullets in your lifetime, and it takes around 2 years to get your gun, with many mental tests during those years. That way the idiots and insane don't get guns, but the people that actually want them and need them get them.

Politicians have their hands full. Guns of course kill a lot easier but if they made them illegal then criminals will still find a way to get guns and civilians will only have at most a knife. Then, if you made guns legal, you give the cops guns so the few criminals can be neutralized easily, but then again, cops can go mad and kill a lot of people. I really don't have a clue of what they might do next for gun violence.
