(apparently some elected officials believe we need more…)
Here’s a Forbes article summarizing this horrendous situation in the USA.
Media — 6/13/2022. They agreed on background checks for buyers of guns between 18 and 21 years of age. Should have been all buyers. More funds for mental health. That is he sleeves out of their vests. Help the states with red-flag processes. Pass the issue off to the states. YOU KNOW THE NRA IS THRILLED WITH THE PERFORMANCE OF THEIR PUPPETS!
Here’s what they did not do:
Media — 6/13/2020. A few major reforms were left out of the proposed deal, including a provision to expand background checks. Also absent is a ban on military-style assault weapons. Plus, there will be no change to the minimum age to purchase guns, which is 18 years old. And no mention of bans on high capacity magazines.
Apparently, courage is not a behavioral competency required of most elected officials in Congress.
Here is the answer (and you can still keep your firearms!):
Anyone who purchases, any age, is subject to a background check. Minimum waiting period, 30 days. AK15 style attack/assault rifles or similar are banned from the USA (except law enforcement and the military). High capacity magazines are outlawed.
And another solution (my preferred):
Holding weapons manufacturers legally responsible for use of weapons by owners/others is absurd!
