Nobody said people aren't the problem. Them guns aren't shooting by themselves..
Also lol @ you comparing yourself with the crazy people going around shooting kids and everything else he sees in site.
One minute you're here boosting about how accomplished you are and the next you want us to believe that you're comparable to a sick fuck who kills people at random.
You have obviously never bought a gun. It isn't cheap...it isn't easy. I can't speak in all situations because it is different state to state. In the state that I live in. In NC...you do NOT need a permit to purchase a gun. In NC...you do NOT need to register your gun (except 1 county that had most of the gang crime like 10-15 years ago -- shout out oto you Durham!!) In NC...you DO need a permit to RECEIVE a gun (private or commercial sale...and even applies to gun transfers like grandpa wants to give you his rifle). You have to apply for a permit. Your local sheriff does a background check on you and approves it. You take it to a licensed dealer...and they work as the broker for you to get it. Or if you go to a gun show...they won't sell it to you without the permit (the infamous "gunshow loop hole" nonsense). A permit costs $25 to apply. Then another $25 to receive it. You can only get 5 every 2 years. However, if you take the CCP training and get licensed...you can buy as many as you want. Do people follow the LAW every time? No...Probably not even the majority of the time...
You are on to something. I think it should be illegal for white people to own guns. That would cut down on 70-80% of all the mass murder shootings overnight.
What I would be willing to do is have it work like a driver's license. You take a class, take some practical training, show a minimum skillset, wait a few days and get approved.
The reason you don't want there to be some type of registry is because as political leaning shift over the years...you don't want some unknown government bureaucrat managing some type of "No Fly" list. Because you end up on that list for some, dumb, unknown reason...and all you have is never ending red tape to be taken off. THAT's why people fight so hard against "common sense gun control"...because the government ALWAYS abuses power
Also...even though we see "mass shootings" in the news every day...it's propoganda. You all know it is. Mass shootings are incredibly rare. Shootings and homicides in general are incredibly rare. I bet if we changed your google search algorithm so that it only showed death by drownings or deaths by cow stampedes...you'd think we have an epidemic after enough time. It is the same here. It is sad that things like this happen...but there is no law that can stop it or punish criminals -- without hurting the OVERWHELMING majority...who are innocent. And even then...I'm 37 years old - middle aged. I have guns placed throughout my house. If I hear someone break a window...or kick in a door. I'm not fist fighting anyone. I will put a bullet in you and go back to sleep. THAT is why I have my guns. I don't hunt (anymore)..and I occasionally go to the range. But I have a wife, a daughter, and another on the way that I am responsible for. I am not about that "in case we need to overthrow the government" life...though I know quite a few who are.
