NO infringements? Would you be ok with someone who is depressed, suicidal, and openly wants to "go out with a bang" (killing lots of kids) have a gun? you cant infringe on his rights so say goodbye to 20 odd 5 year olds

Think about the amount of guns already in Americans hands.
If you think gun violence has reached a new high, you're far from alone. However, according to a new statistical survey, you’re also wrong.
The study, published Tuesday by the Pew Research Center, says that gun homicides have declined by a full 49 percent since their peak in 1993. There has been an even steeper decline, 75 percent, in nonlethal crime victimization (with or without a gun) in the period between 1993 and 2010.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics show there were 11,078 gun homicide deaths in the U.S. in 2010, compared with 18,253 deaths in 1993.
Nonfatal gun crimes dropped by 69 percent during that same period, according to a separate report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics that was also released Tuesday.
Murder is already illegal.
Does anyone disagree that SOMETHING needs to be done, that is my point. not a gun grab yet trying to make America safer. America has a problem no other 1st world country has yet no one wants to admit it
