Gun violence is a huge problem in this country , I support a ban. Do you ? If not then why not?
I am a huge gun control advocate and support a ban like what has worked in other countries. Interested to know others thoughts
These threads always turn into a pointless battle between competing angry derp factions. And it's been done to death.
Repealing rights is the equivalent of making deletions of the 10 Commandments in the eyes of many people. Simply make adjustments. Taking away rights that have lasted 200+ years is an unrealistic approach. No one enjoys giving up rights that they want.
I'm not in favor of gun control. However I am in favor nationally modernized background checks along with the caveat that anyone who is arrested for anything beyond a misdemeanor or has any mental disorder, or drug/alcohol addiction should have their gun license revoked. There should also be a national standard mandatory waiting period to get a license.
I would also be in favor of ban on assault riffles and some semi-automatic pistols. Clearly those guns aren't needed for recreation, hunting, or protection. Having said that nothing will ever eliminate all shootings. The goal should be a major reduction of them.
The Second Amendment is a modern day absurdity. It has not only completely failed to do what it was intended to do, it is also almost completely meaningless at doing what people think it is supposed to do (check government tyranny). Having so many people who are so deeply attached to imaginary fears and the imaginary defense their gun provides them is bizarre, basically, infantile.
I would vote to repeal the Second Amendment in a heartbeat. Not sure about an outright ban. One idea I have been thinking about is fining manufacturers anytime one of their guns gets out in the wild and is used in the commission of a crime. That should get gun registration and gun safety programs set up pretty fast.
I totally agree and thanks for responding, it is a long shot but I made a petition to repeal
