Is tough to address the issue because crazies will get their hands on them regardless...but putting more legal guns on the street isn't the answer, just because you took 40 hours shooting in a range doesn't mean you are a navy seal with it.....look at our own police officers, shooting at ranges all the time, practice and training, come time to pull their triggers and how many times we've had them completely screw that up?
Here's my dilemma, I want tougher gun laws, because it's just common sense at this point, but I KNOW if it happened it wouldn't be applied fairly. Instead of a War on Drugs, we'd have a War on Guns and minorities would be disproportionately targeted, we'd have new mandatory minimums, same thing all over again.
At the end of the day though, guns or no guns, people are going to be crazy and America seems to have an overflow of said crazy people. We cant ignore the direct relationship between the closing of mental institutions and the increase of mass shootings.
