We should have stricter gun laws because guns can be used dangerously by anyone who can harm others.
We should have advanced background checks and limit the selections of guns. This will reduce school shootings, Accidents, Suicide, And injuries related to guns.

Hello.

My name is Aidan, And I am a Republican Trump supporter and a gun user and collector. I understand your argument, But it is still incorrect. My first counter argument is simple: guns don't kill people, People do. And I know what you are thinking, "But what about children, Mentally ill, And potentially criminal people who misuse guns by accidentally or purposely shooting themselves or others? " Well, Stricter gun laws and more rigorous background checks (Trust me, Background checks will not allow someone who is mentally ill, Underage, Or with a criminal record to purchase a firearm) will not help this situation. I think gun control is not the answer, Rather gun safety. One thing we could do is promote safe use of guns, (prevent accidents by verified gun owners), And make sure the owners have a secure place to store their firearms, (keeping children safe).

I would agree with Aidan, If it weren't for this:
Every country has people with mental illnesses.
Only our country has such high rates of gun violence.
I think if we can expand mental health screenings and background checks, And not have semiautomatic and automatic rifles on the public market, We could really reduce deaths from gun violence. It's worked in many countries across Europe, And it's worked incredibly well in Japan. I think it'd be worth a real try :)
