United States Gun Laws: Rights of gun ownership are protected by the 2nd amendment. (When it was written, automatic weapons didn't even exist). 40% of all LEGAL gun sales are done with NO background check - google private sales and gun show loopholes.
For the other 60%, unless you are a convicted felon, you can walk into a store in most states, show them your ID, fill out a few forms and walk out with a heavy duty automatic gun of your choice.
You can legally buy a gun in the United States (in most states) if you are convicted of: Battery, Domestic Violence, Disorderly Conduct, DUI, Drug paraphernalia, Criminal Mischief, drug possession under 20 grams, Trespassing and Stalking - all considered misdemeanor offenses - yes, you can buy a gun the same day as being convicted of any of the above
- 100% legal.
This day, December 14, 2012, in the United States:
An assailant enters an elementary school in the Conneticut and attacks over 20 children.
This day, December 14, 2012 in China:
An assailant enters an elementary school in China and attacks over 22 children.
The difference between the two?
The assailant in the United States had guns and all 20 children and 7 adults died.
The assailant in China had a knife and all 22 children survived.
