  1. People have a problem, indeed. However widespread access to weaponry enables those with afflictions of the heart to pull the trigger in expression of their pain. If they didn’t have a trigger to pull, 🇺🇸 wouldn’t have a mass carnage problem. Tighten controls & clean up the weaponry floating around unattended. Enforce RESPONSIBLE gun ownership. Ensure weapons are maintained by rightful owners of sound mind that SECURE their weapons. If they don’t secure the weapons then they don’t demonstrate responsible gun ownership. Accountability for giving widespread access to weapons must be enforced.

  2. Guns are so easy to get nowadays it's like buying a cell phone you don't even have to go to a gun store I don't know why they're making all these laws when people are just going to find ways to make ways around these laws
