Blatant NRA propaganda. Get real. Cease and desist this bs. Part of the problem even now is differing state regulation or more importantly non regulation of gun ownership which allows dangerous people and red flags to get weapons who shouldn’t have them. The PEOPLE are in the majority sick and tired of the delay tactics and inaction while innocents die. Enough with the piecemeal interpretations of the second amendment. The constitution also grants all citizens the right to LIFE, liberty and justice for ALL. Set a federal licensing database where owners are licensed and weapons are registered as the bare minimum. Insist on a basic psychological evaluation as a part of obtaining said license. Cost of initial registration and licensing can be pro bono. It would be a pittance of the cost of burials. The states can go harder as they see fit. Anyone with lawful reasons to have weapons need not worry one iota. As unregistered firearms are discovered they can be seized and either auctioned publicly to licensed law abiding people or destroyed. No member of the military has to worry about the competency of another member with regards firearm safety as they are all trained on the weapon and safe handling thereof. Law enforcement officers would be more readily apprised of how dangerous a situation could become. It would save lives there. If “ the government” wants to come after you and your pop gun they can bring a tank! Get over yourselves and stop living in fear. The pro gun don’t do anything people are the most insecure psychologically unsound people I have ever talked to!
