It's ridiculous is what it is. I also don't like that in most states family members can sell guns to one another without any FFL (Federal Firearms License) or checks involved.

You want a gun you should have to pass a background check, go through an FFL in all cases, and have at least a 24 hour waiting period.

Some sort of mental health check would be good too. It seems a lot of times the people who shoot places up end up taking their lives too but I feel like if a team of psychologists/mental health experts collectively did case studies on the ones that don't they'd be able to find some sort of common denominator to work on and spot in potentially newcomer shooters. I'm sure plenty of uber pro-gunners would get all up in arms about it but they can stfu and deal with it. It's not just about them and I think that's a big part of the issue- people who are pro-gun and mentally well enough to not go on shooting sprees don't realize gun laws aren't out take all their precious guns away, they're there to protect people from ****ing psychos.

Every time I speak
So I write instead
And still people want me dead
