I agree. I hate it when gun enthusiasts compare cars or tall buildings to guns because they all have the ability to kill someone. Cars and buildings have other purposes. Guns exist solely to kill and maim other beings.
I don't have a problem with people having a pistol, shotgun or hunting rifle in their home in a gun safe. I have a problem with the fact my brother was able to purchase an AK 47 at a gun show without a background check or registering the weapon. It's deemed a private sale. It is more difficult for me to get a federal EA accounting designation than it was for my brother to get an assault rifle.
I think we need to go beyond an instant background check at the sales counter. I think we Ned to have an in depth background checks, mental health evaluations and state sanctioned training. Close the gun show loophole.
People will still be able to get guns, but it will just be a more difficult process.
