I don't understand too much why people from the US are going crazy about how obama is restricting guns a bit. as someone from the UK, I'm not going to go all "you don't need guns", but I'm instead inquiring why people from the US don't want guns restricted. I am merely asking that question

well at an 80 something percent guns per capita rate in america, i think it's beyond the point of repair. sure you can restrict guns but, they're already so many guns in america that they'll just be sold on the black market.

honestly it wont affect me at all. i dont think ive ever seen a real gun before in my life, besides ones that cops have.

but people paid good money for their guns and there was no reason that they shouldn't have been able to. its as if you paid for a car and then next year the cars are banned so you can even have yours parked in your garage anymore, you have to throw it away.

the vast majority obey gun laws and will obey the new gun laws, so it is unfair that these regulations that most likely will not benefit the safety of americans will confiscate many americans' possessions

i own about 5 "assault weapons"
2 aks
an AUG
an AR-15
mostly they are for fun.
i did not buy them to kill people.

the fact is, restricting these guns is proven to do NOTHING
the Columbine school shooting happened during the first AWB,
with guns not restricted by the ban, with 10rd magazines not restricted by the ban.
the ban expired in 2004, and was not renewed, because it was found to do,
again, NOTHING.

in the theater shooting, the gun he used the most, to kill the most, was a pump action shotgun, with 7 rds.
