    Default Questions for those who oppose "gun control"

    Help me understand your position/s here on the issue.

    1. Why shouldn't ALL gun purchases have to go through a background check? Currently 94% of Americans believe that there should be background checks for private sales and at gun shows. 93% of Republicans support it. 98% of Democrats support it. 95% of Independents support it.

    2. Why should it be legal to purchase a semi-automatic weapons? If so, should it be easier or harder to purchase such guns? In 2016, 59% of Americans said they support banning "assault weapons". See the link above for the stats.

    3. I constantly hear conservatives say, "It's not the guns, it's mental health." But my question here is what do you propose to address mental health issues?

    4. Are there any guns or weapons on there, people shouldn't be allowed to own period? Should you be allowed to own rocket launchers, flame-throwers, grenades, or tanks? In other words, is there any line in the sand?

    5. Do you support strengthening the background check system and/or making it harder to purchase high-caliber weapons?

    Please answer these questions honestly.

    600 dead or wounded at a country music festival combined with your support for it and bad spelling is more than I can take.

    My support for 600 casualties at a country music festival? Are you ****ing nuts?


    And my spelling?

    Try sorting that one out without your head exploding.

    So the murder rate would stay the same?
