Looking to have my opinion on gun rights challenged. My position is that there should be no restrictions further than an instant background check looking for a previous mental health or criminal record. Islamic Terrorists should also not be eligible to purchase a firearm. Further than that anyone should be able to buy any gun.

Hi now i personnaly believe that if there were no guns a lot of less accidents would of happened. And if there were no guns people wouldn't need guns to protect themselves. We could create a licence just for farmers and things like that but there is absolutely no reason why the everyday person should need a gun. Any good reasons could just be looked into and would provide more jobs. I believe that guns should not be allowed for th everyday person without a very thourough check.

When there is an ongoing problem of mass shootings, surely something needs to change in respect of how gun control is managed?

The guy just said that if there are no guns you would not need guns to protect yourself! HA! So the little old woman can feel safe when a big young man breaks into her house because he doesn't have a gun?

As I said below like showing ID when you buy alcohol. If you sell it to a guy you know there wont be know background check.

OK, how do you do a background check when you sell a gun to a guy you know?

Same as when you show your ID when you buy alcohol.

No I only believe in instant background checks on a weapon purchase.

So how exactly do you perform a background check on your son when you give him a hunting rifle for his birthday?
