Figured I'd add my 2 cents as a responsible gun owner. Like many have said, if you ban the right to own a gun for law abiding citizens that use them
for recreation, hunting, and/or home protection, then all that is left are the criminals and government. How is somebody who hunts for their food
going to get an abundance for the winter? What are you going to do if somebody breaks into your home, then holds you at gun point and hurts your
family, and there is nothing you can do but watch.
Now, if they ban our guns, do you really think the US government is going to resort to name calling and fight with sticks and stones? No, if dissent
peaks, and nobody could defend themselves from a full governmental take over, then I'm pretty sure it will be a 1 sided victory.
Fix current laws, do not add new ones.
More strict background checks
More fees associated with registering the gun
and maybe even a simple mental health evaluation every few years, just so people don't get a weapon, then become a lunatic and nobody knew.
There is not a 1 size fits all solution here.
