What are your thoughts on gun control?


With the recent mass shooting in Oregon, it makes me think that there needs to be better gun control laws. "But criminals are still going to break laws and get guns, so you're really just controlling law-abiding citizens" ... maybe, but how many of these mass shootings were done by previous criminals? It should be harder to get guns, not impossible, but harder, in this country. America is the only country that continuously has these issues, it needs to stop.

    I agree with you, but the argument is more of "They are still going to find a way to get guns, and now you are preventing 'good' people from owning guns"

    I personally think it's absurd, it shouldn't be easier to get a gun than a drivers license.

    I agree that a class is a reasonable minimum requirement for gun ownership. This is more of a mental health issue. The idea of taking away guns is simpler to grasp than treating mental health problems.

    I'm not suggesting removing guns from households, but why is it easier to get a gun than a drivers license? That shouldn't be.

    no mass shooting has been prevented by a "good guy" with a gun... Why not make it a little harder to get a gun? In most shootings the guns are obtained legally...
