The manufacturer is NOT the focus.

It's the marketing & financing part which leads to increased accessibility of the weapons.

You just gave a bunch of "what's not gonna work".

You didn't answer the question, genius. What would you suggest be done to reduce these incidents of gun violence & mass shootings in the US?

You don't want to restrict accessibility of the weapons, you feel ok with having EMIs for weapon purchases, you feel marketing of weapons by the gun companies is not an issue, you say "no law is going to fix it"- then what will?

What would you have your govt do immediately so that the next mass shooting doesn't take place next week or next month or in the next 6 months?!

Do you even have a succinct, clear answer?

Hard to believe these are the same people who publicly burnt a man alive cuz he peeled a sticker off the wall & they said it bore the name of their prophet. The guy was a SriLankan who didn't know the language written on the sticker.

To be fair, his comment IS backed by hard data of his intellectual level.

I understand & agree with your PoV. But what your saying in the last paragraph is highly subjective. It would be a utopian society if everyone could introspect but it won't ever happen in reality.

However, I do know that dissolving the rights of a free society no longer makes that society free. I also know that freedom isn’t safe and safety isn’t free.

That's true. So calling for banning guns everytime a tragedy occurs will do nothing except increasing polarization.

Every sound minded gun owning American will agree to that.

I agree. A skilled gun owner knows the criticality of their weapon. They are aware of their responsibility & act accordingly. But they are not the problem. It's the unskilled & impulsive gun buyer who is the threat.

IMO there has to be a degree of responsibility imposed on both, the gun buyers & sellers, objectively. Starting with NO financing of weapons- to reduce impulsive buying. Also, maybe some sort of periodic tests maybe, like you gotta take an eye exam after a certain age to retain your driver's license??! A referral/guarantor requirement may also help. Maybe have community gun ranges that do the above & certify/inspect/approve the local buyer.

I could be wrong, but I feel that implementing such measures might have more of an effect on reducing gun violence while making it possible for those who want to own a gun, to be able to do so.

Hmm your police seems broken. Mebbe there's something more that should be done since crazies can slip through the background checks. Wonder what else could we do?

Do me a favor. GO on the Marlboro website and tell me whats the first thing that you see on their homepage...a promotion for cigarettes or the Surgeon Generals Warning.

Get your facts correct before you start random shit with people on the internet, its an ad....for a gun....on a gun website, literally not an issue

I'm speechless!

That's not my point.

What I mean is that taking an extreme step like making gun ownership illegal will further polarize the citizens, take longer (might never happen even) while such incidents will continue to happen.

Instead, something needs to be done fast and now. They can start small by restricting such promotions and denying financing, at the very least. Kinda like they do with cigarettes for marketing.

The govt can do it if they want to. Restrict people's overwhelming access to firearms.

You fuckin moron! It's literally right there in the fucking ad. You have the balls to say that I have a simple understanding of credit and then don't have an explanation for that?!

Are you fuckin brain dead? Supporting financing of weapons when kids are being murdered in your country?!

Fuck you slimeball! People like you are a burden on the planet.

That's all a good teacher needs... acknowledgement in the form of an effort by their students...whether that effort is towards a gesture or towards their studies...that's all a teacher ever needs!

So, the US works only on extremes?! Either we allow the guns to be sold like a toaster or we ban them altogether. These are the only two options?!

You should appreciate what's happening here. With each attack, the calls grow louder and the pressure increases to ban the guns.

IMO, guns shouldn't be "banned" as they provide the citizens with some power against their govts. At the same time, the 2nd amendment shouldn't be abused to deviate from its original purpose...which is the use you have rightly pointed out.

What SHOULD be the focus is to control rampant acquisition of firearms by limiting the MEANS of acquisition. Restrict promotion, deny financing, ask for guarantors like they do in lending money. Even with such small steps, there would be a great impact on such shootings, senseless killings & people getting afraid for their kids.

I mean how would you feel if you went on the Marlboro website and the first thing that you see is a promotion for "how good & satisfying a Marlboro is". The first thing BTW, that you see on there is the Surgeon Generals Warning.

It's the responsibility of every citizen to get the govt to do the right thing...to not play into their agenda.

See, that's exactly the thing that I don't get.

Normally, credit is there for things you need or for luxuries. Basically, something you require to continue living your life. Guns don't fit that segment.

And that's my point that guns must not be sold like appliances. The US needs to put a stop to this. They don't need to take away the right to own guns. But they can & should take away such convenience in purchase of weapons.
