Go look at the stats I posted and try to argue those.
No one needs a Porsche unless they're taking it to a track, either...

I'm not going to argue stats as my rights are outlined in the constitution and current law. Don't like it, change them.

I agree with more strict background checks, I have no issue with that at all. I have no issue with training, but that will ruffle the feathers of quite a few people. Mental health assessments are touchy as well. I mean, if you've been confined to a mental health facility I know you can't get a concealed carry permit...not sure about purchasing a gun, though.

People that want to commit crimes with a firearm will find a way to acquire it whether you have all of these things in place or not...but I think it's a good start. Upholding the laws that are currently on the books and stricter sentences for gun violence would help just as much, if not more.
