Should buying a gun be harder than it already is? Today there are a couple of steps to purchasing a pre-built manufactured weapon. Either you have to have a permit to carry or a permit to acquire. Though you do not need the permits. You will have to complete a NICS(National Instant Criminal Background Check System) form each time you purchase a firearm.
To get either permit you will have to go to your county sheriff's office to fill out a form. If you choose not to get the permits you can take the NICS form before the purchase. The NICS is a background check created by the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993. That is before you are able to purchase a firearm. During the process of getting a firearm though you have to fill out Form 4473. This form was created by the ATF (The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) on January 16, 2017. It is a six-page form that you need to sign every time you buy a weapon from an FFL (Federal Firearms Licensed dealer). After purchasing a firearm, the individual needs to be 18+ to purchase any ammo for the weapon.
In my opinion, I think that there should not be more gun control. I think this because it is starting to become unconstitutional. People should be able to own and bear firearms. Adding more laws to limit the number of people to own weapons. I think owning the permits and having background checks is a little much but is needed to lessen the number of deaths and accidents.
Do you think that there should be more gun control? Why?
Would you own a gun in the future?
Yes, I think there should be more gun control. Because, many criminals and gangs are able to just go out and buy a gun. I also think there should be more things you should have to do to get a gun. I personally dont think guns are what kill people its the idiots behind them. I will definetly buy many guns when im older. Because, I think its the best thing to protect youself.
I agree that there should be a tiny bit more gun control. I feel that it would help lower the number of gangs and criminals who end up with weapons. I also agree that the people are the problem and not the guns. Guns are good for protection as long as you use them with the right intentions.
I think that gun control is enforsed good right now and should stay the same. People with guns have to have licences and have a clean record so its not like they are bad people. I own many gun right now and plan on getting more because they are cool.
I agree that gun control is good the way it is. If a bad person would try to get a gun the enforcement we have today will stop them from getting one. I think that a gun is a good weapon to help defend yourself and should be used with good intentions.
I personally think that gun control should be enforced as much as it is now if not a little bit more if possible. However, I am a strong believer in the ammenments and our rights as a United States citezen to bear our arms; It's the bad apples that make us challenge the equity and morality of such high caliber firearms.
I do agree that gun control is good where it is, but a bit more wouldn't hurt. I am also a strong believer that the amendments are there for us to be free. I also agree that this wouldn't be an issue if there were no "bad apples" in our society.
I'd agree with that. A person can feel however they do about the right to bear arms, but I do not think the standards we have presently are too strict. Background checks and some legal proceedings do not seem excessive for a device that could kill someone with one movement of your hand.
A gun is extremely dangerous if not used correctly or if put in the wrong hands. Cars, something capable of killing people, have a pretty extensive process to be able to use. I think it's expected that at least some sort of process is put in place for guns. However, as a senior who is going to be living by myself or one other woman soon, I see the topic through a different lens. For a young woman, it's most likely any crimes committed against her will take place in her own home. Obviously, that all scares me and makes me debate owning firearms.
