A couple of quick questions. I would ask that you don’t cherry pick. Please take a crack at several or all of them. “I don’t know” is an acceptable reply. It would also be great if we refrained from the “gotcha” games we usually play. Let’s look for solutions here, shall we? Thanks!
Is there any evidence that expanded background checks will do anything? How many gun crimes have you heard of that would have been prevented through a better background check? Are the goons in the hood passing current background checks?
Pistols are what is killing nearly all inner city blacks. AR-15’s are mostly nowhere to be found. Why should the focus be on weapons used in such a tiny percentage of shootings? How do we have a real impact?
Are there any failing liberal policies in the inner cities that need to be addressed?
What gun control policies should be enacted that respect the 2nd amendment and will have an actual impact?
Are we enforcing current gun laws effectivity? Or are we sending the offenders back to the hood to soon to victimize again?
Among them are tougher enforcement policies for federal gun control laws and new guidelines to help cities and states make better use of federal Covid relief funding to combat gun violence, including by hiring police officers.
You look at the gun crimes commited by legal firearm buyers. Then you establish what was missed in the background checks that led to the crime. This is probably already compiled by the FBI. The answer is no doubt already available.
Hint: Legal gun owners are among the most peaceful people in the world.
