I worked for a retail store that sold firearms for several years and I can say that it is far too easy to purchase a gun (at least in the state of Colorado). I can also say that there is no right answer to this problem. Most people that legally purchase and own firearms never use them in violent crime. Criminals will always find a way to get a gun or find another way to kill. I fully support the right to own guns, but they should be harder to purchase. Law abiding citizens should not have a problem with laws designed to make it harder for criminals to get guns. They may find a way to get them anyway but we shouldn't make it so easy.

I get the people who say something like, "well, people can kill people with knives and rocks."
The difference being overlooked is this guy was able to amass a 27 person body count with his big ass gun.
He couldnta done that with a rock or knife.

One thing I would like to point out is that the right to bear arms was given for the sole purpose to allow for citizens (in the form of militias) to protect themselves against the government. Whatever other argument one might have in favor of owning guns is moot WRT the Constitution.

To that end, the 2nd ammendment, as it applies to the modern world, is pretty lame unless you allow for citizens to purchase RPG's, tanks, missiles, and the like. Really, what are gun owners going to do when a drone comes and takes out their house?
Just sayin'! Either change the Constitution to include self defense, allow people to own advanced weoponry, or get rid of it altogether, because it doesn't really mean squat in today's times and people just use it to justify whatever they want it to mean anyways!
