Giving citizens the chance to own guns for self-protection should help with gun deaths, Or so it would seem. In America alone, 113 people died from school shootings in the year 2018. That's only considering school shootings. Almost 40, 000 gun deaths in the US in 2018, The highest in 50 years. The pattern seems to be rising instead of dropping, And that's exactly what guns were supposed to solve. Just recently, There was another shooting in New Zeland, Forcing a stricter gun law. If we take a look at China, There was never a school shooting and China isn't even on the list of countries with gun-related deaths. If we can copy and paste the laws for guns that China has, Into all the countries around the world, We will be able to see a clear drop in gun deaths.

We're somewhat in agreement on this subject. However, I find your solution to be unnecessarily restrictive. Certain classes of weapons should be available to the public and anything that goes beyond a certain danger level should require special training and be part of your job.

Pretty much every government that went tyrannical/dictatorial in Europe in the last century could have been avoided if the citizens in those country were armed like the U. S. Citizens are nowadays.
I still don't get why people are asking for "daddy big government" all the time. . .

The argument is not a complete truth. In basic principle the right to bear arms is a constitutional common defense to the general welfare. The Basic principle of ownership to fire-arm is the delegation the burdens of lethal force into civil action.

The idea of banning a Common defense is to place a judicial hurtle in the way of a appeal process in a Court of law as it relates to public shootings and negligence. A person who is unarmed at a public shooting is equally negligent to a shooting death as the person who is shooting. Unless armed and safety was the cause of lack of action.

This would be part of a whole truth under oath which would be brought to the order of separation by judicial constitutional action.

There are more guns than people in the USA so even if you managed to ban them, We would still have them everywhere. Canada a d mexico also have large amounts of guns they could sell to us. The number of people that die from firearms yearly is inflated due to suicides by firearm. All guns from. 22 to a. 50 should be legal for purchase by citizens. You should even be allowed to purchase explosive ordinance with a proper license
