In America, guns are essential for our way of life. But people like Obama want to take them away. I don't agree with any gun control, not even simple background checks. And I certainly do not agree with an assault rifle ban. No matter what Obama thinks, outlawing guns will not work, criminals will just find them on the street. What we need to do is improve our mental health system, so mentally ill people get the help they need BEFORE they shoot people, not after. Tell Obama to use logic instead of impulse.

Yeah, vote pro! But gun control is good to an extent, all these shooters wouldn't pass the mental background or criminal background check. This means they wouldn't be able to get the gun they wanted if they were going to get a gun anyway, which means less people would die.
