Lets look at straight facts. Try to be objective.
America has extremely high gun violence and mass shootings
America has very loose gun laws compared to other countries
So people would say "easy it's the guns to blame, restrict guns"
America has enacted tighter firearm laws such as the assault weapons ban of 1994 and the handgun band in both Chicago and D.C.
During these legislation periods these gun crime rates did not decrease.
One of the most infamous shootings happened at Columbine.
I'm ok with gun restrictions. I'd say lets get the ability to get weapons the same across all states and then let the states decide what is acceptable to restrict and not. But banning weapons is not going to solve the problem. Stop thinking it is. It has been proven. You say America's loose gun laws are to blame. They have been changed and nothing happened. There are a lot of phenomenons like this. America is a very obese country. It's not like we have looser food laws than the rest of the world. It's the culture. And culture can't, and shouldn't be regulated....well to me at least.
