              I strongly disagree that the lady said "People shoot not because they're mental they shoot cause they have guns". I know a lot of friends who owns guns they don't shoot people cause they own a gun. This is all about situation and their mental strength. People don't act until they have a motive so before taking license they should give them a mental test.

              With regards to language & gammer of the time the 2nd Amendment was written, the accurate reading in todays verbal usage would be "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of 'it's members' to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

                you could treat the gun license like a drivers license but get it renewed like every 6 months or so just to keep it checked or knowledge of it being used in a way.. its not gonna stop it completely but it'll keep them busy.. nevermind still rambling

                  If you want to treat them live drivers licenses, then I don't need a license or background check to buy, own, or drive a vehicle on my property. I only need a license if I want to take my vehicle on public roads.

                  Most people with mental issues are not diagnosed and most people don't go to get help with it how and you can't force someone to get cleared by a doctor before you can purchase so if there is history of mental issues then yes but I would guess 95 % of mentally ill people are undiagnosed so what do you think will actually work

                      Making people that want to inflict harm wait longer for a gun and ammo will not do anything. They will just wait it out till they get what they want and bam back to the same situation.

                        But background checks do not have the purpose to make people wait. The purpose is to deny certain people guns altogether.

                        If you make the process longer and more complicated then yes, it will be a deterrent. The US has a serious problem - and it is entirely a mental health issue - coupled with a gun frenzy. In other countries where guns are as easily accessible on the black market as it is to do so legally in the United States they don't have the same gun problems the US has. The first step is admitting you have a problem on your hands...

                                    I’m definitely more so pro-gun, the current guns we have access to shouldn’t be banned, and I don’t think that some of these laws that other counties won’t work here, but background checks and maybe a psych check every year or two? It could help out, even just the slightest

                                      @Joshua Swart Adressed it in my other comments, reading them helps. reasonable checks are in place already and these firearm laws havent really prevented anything, anyone who really wants to commit a crime wont be stopped by laws.

                                      just a quick question without googling the answers, what does AR stand for and whats the difference between an AR and an AK?

                                      "Shall not be infringed" doesn't mean that reasonable checks cannot be put into place. If that's what you believe, you have a very juvenile understanding of law. And, "ignoring important facts"? You haven't even addressed what they brought up?

                                    22% did not go through background checks: 22 percent overall said they obtained the guns without a background check. But that includes guns that were purchased or received in another way, such as through a gift or an inheritance.Imagine not needing a background check for your great grandfathers WW2 rifle.
                                    13 %who purchased firearms -- for example, from a friend or online -- said they had done so without a background check.

                                    22% is a fals claim and ignores basically every exception and doesn't reflect the purchase of guns, its more in the range of 5-10% and again there are guns that don't need checks, illegaly brought ones for example and non functioning historical pieces.

                                      It's not a false claim. How does buying from an individual "not count"?

                                    NCIS, the background check is completed within minutes, if after 3 days the check is still running but so far had no results it can proceed as there is a 99.9999999% chance that you are eligeble to buy the weapon since the computer went basically through everyone and couldnt find a match with criminal records.
                                    And just like in Canada, hitting your wife is enough to deny you the purchase of firearms.

                                      The gun show loop is completely false... that "loop" is for those trying to sell them OUTSIDE of gunshows. Those sales frequently are between a criminal and undercover officer, too... so its (almost always) a loop to prison. Additionally, licenses must be renewed frequently as well as the background checks.

                                          React, at @4:09 this is just untrue. While there is no penalty federally for bringing guns across state borders. To buy a gun in a neighboring state is actually a lot harder than you make it out to be. According to federal law you can not buy handguns in a state you are not a resident of, rifles you can buy in a non residing state, but BOTH State's laws have to be followed.

                                            You can buy a gun, handgun or long gun, in any state regardless of residency. You cannot claim ownership of said weapon in any state but your own. The firearm must be shipped to an FFL of your choice in the state you reside in for a background check.

                                            you can not buy a gun in  Nevada and carry it back to  Cali.   you can buy a gun in Nevada and have it shipped to a FFL dealer in Cali  then go in  fill out the background check paperwork  and then pick it up

                                          I only made it two minutes before I had to turn it off. Soooo many uninformed people repeating the same nonsense we've been hearing for years. Unless and until people like this actually educate themselves instead of repeating the same misconceptions, there's no debate to be had because you can't debate people who believe fallacies.

                                          wonder why it was never brought up that all these shooting happen in gun safe zones? the only ppl that obey the law is law biding citizens, the shooter picks the place for a reason.

I'll post a link because you didn't and the Internet never forgets! https://www.nraila.org/get-the-facts/background-checks-nics/ "Federal law requires firearm dealers, regardless of location, to initiate a background check before selling or otherwise transferring a firearm to a person who is not a dealer."

                                            @Anon54387 Guns are used for self-defense millions of times. Even the 'gubment knows this and wants to keep quiet about it because it makes all anti-gun laws look bad. https://capitalresearch.org/article/why-is-the-cdc-hiding-its-defensive-gun-use-statistics/

                                            Kyle: Tell that to the kid who shot the three people armed with knives that kicked the door in while his parents were at work. Thankfully, he had access to the family rifle. There are numerous examples like this, often defending against people who are wielding a weapon other than a gun. People have a right to self defense thus a right to own weapons. It boils down to that, and anything else is just muddying the water.

Very few of these comments offer up valid arguments and the ones that do say they have "facts" but have no evidence to back it up.

                                          Can we not ALL come together to create an effective solution that benefits both sides of the argument? Looking at this comment section, probably not sadly.

                                            The way to improve the safety of individuals is to keep the violent among us in prison. Especially those who've repeatedly been violent. The solution is not to infringe our right to keep and bear arms.

                                              Fact, when it comes to "gun violence", actual gun violence, the United States ranks like TWENTIETH in the world, per capita. Google it for christ's sake. Compare apples to apples. Fact, we have gun laws and wackos and criminals still get them. England has taken guns away from their people and their murder rate has been basically unaffected. Knifing deaths are through the roof! Google it for christ's sake. The purpose of the second amendment is to grant the populace the right to protect itself from the GOVERNMENT, if it becomes necessary. MAKE NO MISTAKE, when the politicians start talking about "gun control", they're really talking about PEOPLE CONTROL. The real problem that we have here is people just will not speak up. IN VIRTUALLY EVERY CASE of these "mass shooting incidents" the have been multiple and often MANY people THAT KNEW IT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN and they said nothing for fear of negative repercussions.

                                                More importantly, in just England and Wales alone (58 million people) they've had 43,000 offenses with a knife so far this year alone.
                                                In the US (330 million people) we've only had 4,000.
