    Shouldn't they also check that persons family member too, I mean a lot of kids got access to these guns because their dads or any other family member to them owns a gun.

      The 1st person should be black and also he should be buying a gun off a shady drug dealer

          So how do you think you can stop criminals from shipping boats of $30 full automatic ak47 rifles from south America?? The ACTUAL weapons of war that can be dipped it mud, wax, thrown down a mountain, shot by enemy fire and will still function.. unlike all the civilian grade replicas we have in the states as LEGAL OWNERS... but they dont care about our safety and our rights, cause if they did.. they would uphold the constitution AS IS WAS WRITTEN and allow any adult to buy any firearm (firearm: a "device" that is solely built to direct a projectile that had been accelerated using a standard form of "gunpowder"

          *I personally feel we should be allowed to have armed aircraft and watercraft along with armored vehicles + any ordinances under 500lb

            Gun show and private sale both require going through a background check database built by the feds(universal)

                            You MUST go thru a background check at a gun show. Try it.

                                Yeah I live in 1 of those states thats “doing more” and I know ppl that have gotten guns at 19 illegally. It’s extremely easy. Doesn’t matter if you need a license or not.

                                      Licensing makes confiscation much easier, and is a clear infringement of the second amendment

                                        In order for this to work, the state must agree to the following,

                                        -If applicant passes, state ‘Shall Issue’ license, not ‘May Issue’ (at their discretion)

                                        -One-time thing, no re issuing, no renewal requirements

                                        -no restrictions on type or quantity of weapons or ammunition

                                        -No registration of firearms

                                        -no restrictions or other hassles when moving or relocating

                                        -No revocation/suspension without due process and just cause (felony conviction excluded)

                                        To date, no state will agree to these .

                                        Additionally, the left-wing has decided that this is simply not good enough for them and has taken the ‘total confiscation’ stance.

                                          why did you stop the chart for gun violence in Connecticut at 2005? no notable large scale gun-related homicides after 2005 (2012)...?

                                              I have never been to a gun show where background checks weren’t required for purchases. I’m calling this bluff.

                                                    Correction, you have to get a background check at a gun show

                                                      The thing you conveniently left out is if you buy a gun privately or at an organized gun show and then commit a crime with that weapon, the person who sold you the weapon will be held responsible as well. While there is no federal gun show law, every gunshow required you to do a background check. Otherwise the company hosting the show would be responsible. Same thing with private sellers.

                                                        Even if universal background checks don't work like intended, isn't it still super sad that something with 96% support wont get passed? If you cant pass something that won't change much cant pass, the new system definitely wont pass either. People need to focus on changing representatives both locally and nationally before anything like this will pass.

                                                            maybe we should implement some technology into the gun , like GPS, that is able to blok the gun.

                                                            IMO I don’t think people need to have 55.6 or 76.2 caliber weapons to protect them self from someone, also 9 mm or any smaller or slightly bigger caliber bullet would still work. They should also implement a rifles licenses which would only allow certain people to get a higher caliber and rifle looking gun. But what do ik I’m just a Canadian lol

I'm sure that won't be abused to swing votes or leverage special interest groups. You're thinking of this like congress actually prioritizes effective and efficient policy. Stop thinking like a civilian. It's about votes and how to manipulate them.

Also, the biggest problem is that ppl in Massachusetts will just go to New Hampshire for a gun. The gun manufacturer has to send guns on a per order basis.
