Shortly after a shooting, like in a Lafayette, Louisiana theater. We hear liberals throughout the mainstream media quickly begin to once again call for increased “reasonable” gun control. But it don't help, those intending to do injustices get weapons, any way they can. I understand concealed carry an open carry permits but not being "generalized" over the states an fluctuation in laws in different states makes it confusing an difficult to keep up an track of. Background checks imo are a starting point but after a individual buys a "weapon" an say goes off to a mental institution or jail an gets back they may get there prior legal owned weapon. There is many hundreds of firearms in a zip code in most lower 48 states. The 1800's a criminal I hear, got his gun back after time served (mostly with out ammo).. America wont be gun free. We could make single shot weapons with a few items from a hardware store. Make homemade black powder. I had Read a article about England wanting its people to donate knifes out of safety, an because of knife stick up's . An attempting to make awareness. But things pointed still could be used even screwdrivers an most there don't have firearms. Gun Control and prevention, most laws enacted are hindering, more so than helping. Even hunters help "game populations" from growing so large in number and getting diseases an such, an being a huge nuisance. Like deer for instance. An restricted laws hurts deer, an other game. Restrictions on weapons in the time of our founding fathers would have changed the course of America. An it would have changed Japans strategy in WW2. We should support smarter politicians, an better gun laws an our countries foundation. I'm also willing to throw out that if a prisoner did his/her time an met some qualifications they should be allowed to vote. An some federal Bills & Laws should be placed on a ballot "initiative" to better get our opinions. But imo gun control in this day in age is squeezing laughter from most, especially those intent on doing harm with one. Sent from my Sprint phone.
