I'm sure that will happen over time and then we'll have to improve upon the psych evaluation. Unless people start becoming more sane and stable, this problem will not go away no matter what solution we take. I personally feel the status quo is broken and that a psych evaluation is a good first step.
Guns won't be taken away in our lifetime so you don't have to worry about that. There are just too many of them out there. Again, gun control advocates like myself would like to enforce stricter gun laws to prevent certain types of guns from being distributed as well as preventing certain types of people from obtaining guns with the easy accessibility they have now.
Banning guns won't make a difference. Drugs are illegal but yet people drill use them and find a way to get them into the country. Guns will still find a.way into hands of people. Its society and the mental health care that needs to change
Nope didn't say I hear about 20 black kids getting shot each week. I said I here about a young black kid getting shot at least once a week
It's all about society. I own guns and I love to hunt. If they took away my guns and I couldn't hunt, I wouldn't know what to do in my life
Metallica made me do it.
Criminals aren't the ones doing these mass shootings.
Again, the talk is about gun control, not gun bans. That's the debate. As much as I would like to rid the world of guns, it's not happening.
No because gun lobbyists are too strong in this country. It's all about making sure that guns sales remain as high as possible. The don't want to limit their market.
I think our problem is our loathsome, sick, self-destructive, soulless, psychopathic culture. We are born into hatred, avarice, worship at the altar of the cult of the individual, and steeped in the cultural suppression of empathy, of the notion of a cooperative, humane civilization, and the perverse elevation of violence as a virtue. Humanity is comradeship, and we have sought to systematically eliminate this from our shared psyche. Unfortunately we are a sick civilization, and I don't think taking our guns away will stop us from killing one another, and more importantly continuing to nurture the cancer we created which will eventually destroy us all.
We have to be able to bear arms. Remember this country was found upon this principle. It's primarily so the government can't take control of us.
How can we change the culture of this country? That is the question.
Remember a NOBEL prize was given for the ATOM bomb. What else can we say?
I think the issue is where are the lines drawn in the right to bear arms? When the amendment was passed the best we had were muskets. Now an average joe can afford and legally purchase an assault rifle. Nothing wrong with evaluating these things to se what's best for the people. No one ITT as far as I can see wants to repeal the 2nd.
Above all else, the 2nd amendment is a defense against political tyranny from government, domestic or abroad. I guess I'm old fashioned in that, the chance taken on horrific events is a necessary exchange for absolutely nothing to protect personal liberties.
The only thing protecting your 1St amendment is the 2nd, when you really boil down reality.
