The people who think "ban guns now!"
need to understand
that this is like trying to ban ABORTION in the USA (as in, utterly impossible to do so. Good luck trying to enforce such a ban), and are frankly deluding themselves due to the fact that just because something is passed into law does not make it concrete and ready to enforce (governments are not homogenous automatons, especially in somewhere like the USA). On the other end of the spectrum, the US seems to have a problem with Spree killings, and that is exacerbated to an extent by availability of firearms.
However, many of the perpetrators in these incidents appear to have mental health problems, so the problem with these shootings is more than just an issue with firearm availability.
The only thing that deserves a ban IN here is gun control debate!
