One of the problems we have with guns is that most of the mass shooters are young (white) males who don’t have felony records. They might have misdemeanors and school discipline records longer than the Golden Gate Bridge. They may have even been accused of committing a felony. But unless they’ve been CONVICTED of a felony, their ability to legally purchase a gun from any store remains unrestricted. This doesn’t take into account private sales, where regulation practically doesn’t exist. This is made so easy on the Internet.
The other problem is the lack of training and accountability. Most states just 10 years ago required that you obtain a concealed carry permit if you wanted to pack heat in public places. This required you pay for a permit and undergo training. But the Republican Supreme Court has virtually gutted these laws. Now any yokel can buy an armory of weapons and pack heat in public places without any training.
How wouldn’t this end in disaster?
Its completely ****ed, as ridiculous as the story of the 6 year old that shot their teacher was, the more insane bit was that the kid had been searched earlier in the day? In what sort of world do you daily search 6 year olds for a Saturday night special?
