Of course they are. They weren't around in the 1790s or the 1860s, so they have no historical precedent to support them.

You're only a law abiding citizen until you aren't.

Preventing felons and people who've ALREADY committed crimes from purchasing guns isn't an issue. The issue is trying to lessen the number of NEW people with no records from committing crimes. You can have background checks up the wazoo and they mean diddly squat if you've been a law abiding citizen up until the point you decide to shoot up a dozen people.

I can't believe that threatening to kill "everyone" doesn't count as a minor crime of some sort.

If we want to take care of the gun problem in this country we need to pass red flag laws and set the bar ridiculously low. Ever get a speeding ticket? No gun. Cited for loud noise a night? No gun. Have you ever farted in an elevator? No gun.

We are only allowed to make preemptive laws against things that never happen, like trans women lurking in bathrooms to molest girls, or drag queens brainwashing our children.
When it;s something that happens all the time, outlawing it would be prior restraint.

Only thing that is prohibited to be databased and searchable is who owns what.  No limitations of the background check system, where the data should've been entered and then found.

Sure there were, a lot of states had permission slip laws where the sheriff or a local judge had to OK you before you could buy a gun.

For some crazy reason, these were used in abusive ways which lead to their wide rejection in the second half of the 20th century.

He probably did do something, but the tendency to forgive white boys for stepping out of line(to not ruin their future) keeps them out of the system. Punched a classmate, got high and destroyed property, DWI, etc.

Usually there is something that warranted intervention, even just mandatory therapy, that was dismissed.

Reagan and GHWBush are the two presidents that have done the most to pass laws that actually restrict the availability of real military weapons in the US.

It depends on the law. Stricter background checks wouldn't have stopped THIS particular shooting. Neither would banning bump stocks. So on and so forth.

Yet politicians only ever seem to put forth those sorts of solutions. You can have all the red flag laws, background checks, and limited capacity magazines you want but in the end if a person can still legitimately buy a gun and shoot people with it then there's still a problem. The core issue is simply "letting people buy firearms is an inherently bad idea". We don't let people own grenades, rocket launcher, tanks, or artillery, all of which are also inherently bad ideas, so why guns?

It's like putting a band-aid on a gaping chest wound and then having people go "Look! It's still bleeding! Obviously band-aids are bad and don't work! Get rid of them. What we need are more chest wounds."

You know if 6 Supreme Justices were shot you probably wouldn't have this situation.  I bet there would be so much gun control legislation that the 2nd Amendment would become meaningless.

That laws that take guns away from criminals only work if you're already a criminal.  Is it really that hard to understand?
