Chicago has very strict gun laws and yet the highest gun related crimes...criminals do not care about laws...you cannot pass a law that will stop a criminal from obtaining a weapon if he really wants one

guns don't kill people it's the crazy unstable people, the uneducated people.

@5R8SH7MDemocratfrom Texas  answered…1yr

do whatever Australia did after their first and only mass shooting.

@9VKLFG5Constitution from Virginia commented…5mos

No, and the government should pass a national “stand your ground” law

Criminals will still get their hands on weapons, and Law abiding Americans won’t have the ability to protect themselves.


not to mention gun crime in Australia hasn’t disappeared, even after the mandatory buybacks.

@5TJ8676Republicanfrom Utah  answered…1yr

I believe there are over 2000 gun laws already on the books. Maybe we could enforce those before passing new ones. Come on, people! Guns don't kill people, people kill people.

@Aaron-PurdyRepublican from Texas commented…12mos

No

all I'm gonna say is the first thing Hitler did was ban all guns to make citizens defenseless

@Mackenzie-Kauric…Peace and Freedom from Texas commented…3mos

Yeah, and Hitler declared any news that didn't support him as "fake news". Good thing we didn't have a president who declared everything that didn't support as "fake news". Oh, wait...

Stay out of this. Guns are only a method to kill. People are messed up. Start at home with good role models.

@9R6YBPDRepublican  from Florida disagreed…11mos

No they aren't. In bad cases yes, but they are a method of self protection. See if you keep the same opinion when you get mugged or when someone is breaking into your house.

@9VKLFG5Constitution from Virginia commented…5mos

No, and the government should pass a national “stand your ground” law

This isn’t accurate at all - Most firearms have never been used ( and never will be used) to kill.

@5WMRCKXRepublicanfrom California  answered…1yr

No! People should be required to carry a concealed handgun with a MINIMUM of 8 rounds in public and have a 30 round semi automatic gun in their home to be able to defend themselves and their loved ones rather than putting them and theirselves in danger due to lack of defense against criminals that are going to purchase guns off the street any way!

@6J48RN6Socialistfrom Colorado  answered…1yr

You know what we should totally do? Let's say you take the class, clear a background check, then go to a gun dealer. The gun dealer can check your background check again, then help you choose the right gun for you. Here's the clincher: You have guns that will only work for you. Like using your fingerprint. (This is my husband's idea and I LOVE it! They have safes that work this way, why not find a way to apply it to firearms?!). Anyways, if someone steals your gun, they cannot use it because their fingerprints are different. Then it's just a glorified paper weight.

@9R2M2XCVeteran from Colorado disagreed…11mos

No

scenario 1: If i was a criminal, i'd just get a screwdriver, open the gun and rip out all of the electronics.

scenario 2: Gma who hasnt touched her gun in years, has her home broken into, and cant use her gun, because she forgot to change out the old batteries.

@Aaron-PurdyRepublican from Texas commented…12mos

No

this would make guns way too expensive and would not allow the common citizen to own one

@9VKLFG5Constitution from Virginia commented…5mos

This makes it sound like the only way a person could reasonably use a firearm is in self defense, but what about recreational shooting or hunting? It’s certainly the case that many shooters enjoy trying a friends new firearm. I can also see many scenarios where new shooters need to share a firearm with a more experienced shooter - that could imply that kids learning to hunt turkeys with grandpa would have to submit fingerprints to the government before being able to participate.

@9R6YBPDRepublican from Florida disagreed…11mos

I like the Judge Dredd idea, however this would make firearms way too expensive for a common citizen. Plus if the fingerprint ID were to malfunction, that half second of reaction time you get to defuse the situation could end up in your death.

@5ZK7XSPfrom California  answered…1yr

Guns will be included with each school lunch as part of the "happy meal" concept.

@65XY3VTRepublicanfrom Virginia  answered…1yr

I firmly believe disarming American citizens makes them helpless in too many situations. For example, Thieves, Robbers, Murderers and MOST of all, a ROGUE GOVERNMENT. WITH THIS, I ALSO believe we DO need stricter background checks and, only if needed, psychological testing and Training for those first time gun owners for proper and safe handling. Taking guns away from good citizens is illegal, according to our CONSTITUTION. LEAVE IT ALONE!!!

@9VKHX8BLibertarian from Kentucky answered…5mos

All gun laws are infringement and should not be regulated by the federal government

@5T6XHSLDemocratfrom California  answered…1yr

They should go after illegal gun smugglers and sellers. Allow honest law-abiding citizens to carry unconcealed and concealed firearms.

@9YPB6WNIndependent from Arizona answered…2 days

Yes, close guh show loophole, strict background check, and training

@9YNXQV4Veteran from California answered…3 days

Yes, require strict background checks, psychological testing, and training, AND who needs assault rifles, bump stocks or not.

@9YNNMQ2Independent from New York answered…4 days

keep background checks in place and ban semiautomatic and automatic firearms

@9YMP7STWorking Family from Ohio answered…6 days

Only on certain things. We have the right to bear arms however there needs to be more thorough background checks and different rules on how to posses a weapon

@9YM6LZ7Socialist from New Jersey answered…1wk

@9YLMNF5Transhumanist from North Carolina answered…1wk

There should be some restrictions and there should be background checks, record checks, etc., but guns should not be banned by any means.

@9YLLFG7Socialist from North Carolina answered…1wk

Yes, require strict background checks, psychological testing, and training. They must also be able to correctly disasemble the gun they wish to purchase

@9YLJLL8Peace and Freedom from New York answered…1wk

No, but criminals shouldn’t be able to buy register or use them, and mentally ill have to be screened to see if they are able(mentally) to hold one.

@9YJVCRVWorking Family from Indiana answered…2wks

There should be a test to make sure the person buying the gun in stable enough to use it.

@9Y8NF7ZTranshumanist from Indiana answered…3wks

no, except on criminals and mentally ill beyond a certain point. Automatic assault weapons should be authority figures only.

@9Y8KGZ7Women’s Equality from Texas answered…3wks

No, assault weapons, along with no, for the criminals, and the mentally ill.

@9Y8JB9CWomen’s Equality from Michigan answered…3wks

It depends on the state and for the most part the current answers are very one sided towards Democrat false beliefs and misinformation because they are not educated on the matter.

@9Y88VBNPeace and Freedom from North Carolina answered…3wks

@9Y82CVVSocialist from California answered…3wks

Yes, while everyone has a right to own a weapon, their is no reason why guns in particular are, or should be protected

@9Y6HCCKDemocrat from Wisconsin answered…4wks

No. Assault weapons should never be in use by anyone, ever. I Believe that the police should have to call in guns, as they would in Britain.

@9Y57463Women’s Equality from Florida answered…4wks

As long as the buyer has not committed a violent crime or buy the gun with malicious intent.

@9Y4XRKXVeteran from North Carolina answered…4wks

I think what rules we have now are good but I think we should not allow felons or anyone with mental disabilities to own a gun.

@9NDFHX2Women’s Equality from Utah answered…1yr

No but the current gun laws should be enforced more consistently and uniformly than they currently are.

@9NDCP2BWomen’s Equality from Washington answered…1yr

Background and mental health checks would be ideal with suggested training.

@9NCF53XVeteran from Florida answered…1yr

No but do extensive background and mental checks for everyone
