The question is about gun control, while the answer options are about the guns themselves. A tad confusing!

Why do some people want to not have background checks?

Gun laws save lives: after the Federal Assault Weapons Ban was enacted in 1994, gun massacres went down by 37% and mass shooting deaths decreased by 43%. But when Republicans in Congress allowed the law to lapse 10 years later in 2004, gun massacres went up by more than 200%. And to those who quote the Second Amendment, the Second Amendment was never intended to permit mass killing. When it was written in the 18th century, the framers' goal was to allow a "well-regulated militia", not to enable Americans to go on shooting sprees. More guns will not make us safer. A vast majority of Americans, including gun owners are in favor of common-sense gun safety laws. And finally, the NRA has a stranglehold on the Republican Party. It's time all of us listen.

There already is gun control. What do you propose to add that isn't already on the books?

Ladiesman is a liar. According to "Firearms and Violence: A Critical Review" - "A recent evaluation of the short-term effects of the 1994 federal assault weapons ban did not reveal any clear impacts on gun violence outcomes (Koper and Roth, 2001b)." Ladiesman is spreading fake news. Probably watches CNN and TYT all day.

If everyone had a gun, they could easily stop a terrorist, while without the guns, the terrorist would use an illegal gun to just shoot everyone.

No gun control. You're not taking away my AR-15 because some wacko who had red flags used one previously. Cho used two pistols to kill 32, And people didn't want the pistols to be banned right? (Not anti-gun)

Guns kill children bla bla blah bah SHUT UP! Gun bans have not been effective in the past, Guns save way more lives than they take, And I will have no way to protect myself in public or against a tyrannical government. How about arming conceal-carry responsible teachers, Who by the way commit crimes 14% less than POLICE OFFICERS, With guns instead of taking away the 2nd amendment, Our basic God-given right!

Ladiesman ur actually a freaking idiot. Homicide rate went down during the ban, But after it expired it has remained the same! Correlation does not mean causation. And by the way are you an American citizen? Because then Trump is your president defined by law. It doesn't matter if you don't like him, He is your president because you are an American citizen. It's a fact. I didn't like Obama, But he was still my President because I'm AMERICAN, And he is PRES OF THE US! DUH! FAKE NEWS!
