Whenever a mass shooting occurs the media does it's best to portray a situation as " If these stricter gun laws were in place at the time it could have stopped this massacre from ever happening". But the truth is stricter gun laws do not work for CRIMINALS. They only work for disarming law abiding citizens.
CRIMINALS do NOT follow laws so do you think they would follow GUN laws? Absolutely not. If a CRIMINAL wants a Gun they will find one by any means necessary. Look at California for instance. The state has some of the most strict gun laws in the country but that does not stop a CRIMINAL from walking on to the property of a Gun free elementary school zone and shooting it up.
Politicians that know absolutely nothing about guns make up stupid gun laws that only affect people trying to buy them legally. It solves nothing when it comes to CRIMINALS.
Get the illegal guns off the street. I don't care how unconstitutional our government has to be to find and get all of these illegal guns off the street. After that is done every state must require a Firearms Identification Card just like here in NJ to buy a Gun. To obtain a FID card you should have to be mentally evaluated by a professional doctor and give up all mental health records along with fingerprints and criminal background check. It should also be necessary to take a basic fire arms course for you to obtain a weapon. If you pass an evaluation by a professional doctor and take a Firearms class you should be able to own any semi-automatic firearm you want but you MUST REGISTER IT.
As of now you do not have to register firearms in this country after you buy one so how does the government keep track of the firearms being bought? They don't! But our state will pass stupid laws like changing the magazine count from 15 to 10 to make the liberals stop crying.
I am very pro second amendment and I believe I have the right to safely store a gun of my choosing in my home to protect me and my family but these gun control laws are doing nothing but making it difficult for law abiding citizens like me. The government needs to step up and get all of the illegal guns off the street, make citizens in every state obtain an FID card and go through training and psychological evaluations before getting one, and REGISTERING the guns so if someone does illegally sell it or do something with it they can trace where it came from! But no, politicians are too worried about lowering magazine counts and banning AR-15s.
