Background checks will only ever correlate with forecast criminal activity. They're meant to keep proven criminals from accessing firearms. Background checks will never stop "new criminals." And no, the solution is never to violate the fundamental right of self defence every human being has.

What is background checks going to do?! Neither one of these guys had a criminal history or they wouldn’t have passed a 4473. They are looking in the wrong place most of these shooters were isolated by society in high school. They are incels now and their speech has been censored in media. Hence, them putting these manifestos on 8chan. The solution is for people to start carrying wherever they go. These guys are picking soft targets where they know people will be defenseless. Hell, even the El Paso guy said it in the manifesto. Citizens need to get guns and a carry permit and training.

Mental health reform, yes. Our mental health care system in this country is a joke. Fixing our mental health care system would also reduce "gun deaths" because over two thirds of them are suicides. However video game violence has not been shown to have any significant correlation with real world violence. It's mostly anti-vaxx soccer moms who think this, and it distracts from the real problem.

I want to see exactly what sort of controls we are talking about before I can agree or disagree.

I blame the media for mass shootings. Ban assault media.

Did any of the shooters have any criminal background? Not that I'm aware of. Stupid premise.

Mental Health and disenfranchisement are the real problems. And using these events to do anything but address those problems only reinforces the problems.

I think the U.S does have a healthcare issue. I don't see gun control helping in a big way. Sure, it can lower the amount of military like weapons in the hands of civilians, but if someone wants to shoot up a school or a public place, they'll do a few things. 1. Go in with a hand gun and try to kill as many people as they can. Sure the body count with drop because handguns aren't the best for that situation, but it's still a tragedy. 2. They'll buy a Assault rifle off the black market, changing in the situation at all. 3. Turn to even drastic measures.

Many gamers, including myself, want Trump 2020. This is not a good idea Mr. President.
