Well, it's up to the courts to decide whether to allow guns or not. And you know many online article writing firm in uk has already discussed this issue in the past as well.

Some of the ideas may not be bad, like extended background checks for 18 year olds if they have Juvie records.

I believe addressing the lack of values in our society, the destruction of the family and mental health issues are the first places to start. More restrictions do not make gun violence go down. We need only look to the gun violence in Chicago to see that their stringent gun restrictions do not keep gun violence from occurring. When there is no societal value for life and our leaders and some parents (go to a youth sports game to see that example) provide excellent examples of how to bully, mistreat and threaten one another, I don’t know how we can not expect society to continue to decline into violence, whether the offenders use guns, knives, cars, baseball bats or a rock.

No. The issue here is 100% mental health. It has nothing to do with guns. The most lethal thing to kids, teens, and adults in the US is social media. Not guns. Not covid.

Instead of limiting access to guns, limit the access and number of hours of exposure to social media, especially for kids, pre-teens, and teens, and we'll have a healthier youth and community.

My concern with red flag laws is that at some point those wanting to disarm certain aspects of our society (i.e., conservative-thinking people) will deem people 'unfit' due to language on social media, actions at a school board meeting, etc. With the way our courts rule lately, it would be a two-tiered system where the conservative folks would be thrown in the gulag, their gun rights removed, as well as other rights. Let's not allow that that door to open.

Haven't seen complete bill. I would be in favor of raising the age limit for purchasing guns to 21 and limiting size of magazines to about 10. (We have to keep up with bad guys.)

It will be very difficult to force compliance on background checks at gun shows. There are big gun shoes in Tulsa every month and how to enforce background checks at weekend shows ??

"We've got to do something to end these school shootings," people say.

However, it is often the wrong thing. Our inclination to "do something" has let to too many laws. The experiment at the founding of the US was to see if people could rule themselves.

Secondly, why don't the gun-grabbers quote statistics on how many lives are saved by guns.

People who shouldn't have guns will find a way to obtain them. I don't think any law will keep this from happening.

I strongly oppose the "bipartisan agreement" on gun laws. I am particularly opposed to the "Red Flag Laws.". If these laws advised the gun owner that an accusation had been made and allowed him to appear at a hearing to defend himself, these laws could be justified - or at least tolerated. But these laws accept the word of a potentially revengeful person and make a decision before the gun owner even knows there's an issue. Our justice system is based on due process, which is sadly lacking with Red Flag Laws.

Mental health is important, whether or not a person is responsible for how they use a gun. But I think it's pretty dangerous for kids and teens who aren't old enough to handle it if they know there's a gun in the house.

Guns will get into the hands of people who shouldn't have them. I don't think there is a law that can stop this from happening.
