On th topic of getting guns illegally. all guns sold legally in the US should have a certain trade mark or barcode that prooves the gun was bought
Remote scanning devices could be used by the police or miltary to watch the flow of arms and make sure they are not used in mexico by the drug cartels or terrorists anywhere.
All citizens that do this make our world more safe and should get the gun safety course for free and a discount on any guns they want, paid by Uncle Sam.
This would stop law makers from pushing gun bans with cold hard truth.
So why not give some of this money to respectable American citizens who's right to buy and own a gun is very close to being infringed, heck I'd pay my taxes for that, wouldn't you?

I think people should have to pass a gun safety test and and an IQ test before they should be allowed to buy or even handle a gun. The there's a lot better chance there will be less crime and the guns will be in the hands of people who don't make stupid mistakes and aren't mentally ill.
I personally don't know of many gangsters or drug dealers that went to college.

Actually the AK-47 is pretty reliable and cheap. And it is in major use no doubt by the drug cartels. And many of the drug cartels have military trained hit-men. So they do likely know how to maintain their firearms.
allowing respectful Americans to keep the right to buy a gun at an affordable price

By the way, they are human too, and all humans are born with the knowledge of right and wrong (no matter how suppressed).
