So your saying that people under 25 don't have the right to defend themselves. That's strange.

As I read my post i dont believe I posted that ??? hmmmm, and yes I do think that certain firearms should have more of a regulation on the purchase age and a more detailed background check.

Yes you did. You said the requirement age to buy a gun should be 25. Why can't a 21 year old buy one? More detailed background check? Like what?

yes! a more intensive background check needs to be performed not just a 5 min phone call to osp. for example federal, and check for any past or present mental problems, and im not talking about purchasing a pistol or bb gun or ammo. i am talking about any assault rifle or automatic firearms.

You're not aware of the NICS System. Do you even know what it takes to buy automatic firearms?

Of course I do, considering I own them. But still dont change the fact that some of these people are obviously purchasing these firearms that are used in these massive shootings.So basically im stating that something different needs to change to try to prevent these from happening.

They're getting them from someone else. And they're NOT using full autos.

And putting more obstacles in place of the law abiding gun owner is the answer? Why not deal with the root cause. The criminals and those intent on killing as many people possibly by ANY means.

I agree and yes, but there is NO way to eliminate the black market where most of these people are buying them from.ALso it dont matter what kind of firearms there using full auto or not !! and this discussion can go on forever so im leaving it at that.

I will defend my home and family to the best of my abilities. Remember this I ask why we don't look into the problem of why people think mass killing is the only answer. By the FBI stats more knives and bats kill more people yearly then guns do. So lets first outlaw the worse killing tools in order if you really think that will stop people from killing. The problem here is the person not the tool! Please think this out because once you lose that right you will be the next third world country with a brutal dictator who has all the guns and you have nothing. Then where will you turn?

I couldn't agree more... I think that would be one of the biggest mistakes ever made if they banned firearms. Also I agree on the person as well, but the fact is banning of firearms will only make this issue worse in my opinion. The black market will always be there for illegal purchase of firearms. I would hope every normal person would defend their family and home in the case of an emergency. This is crazy, that the thought of OUR own people and governmnet would try to take away one of our constiution rights and leave us without any defense!!!

OR maybe its the parents, because age is not the reason. My 5 year old son knows the safety rules, RESPECTS the firearms he shoots and KNOWS What damage they cause. He is 5 and can take many adults to school on gun safety. AGE IS JUST A NUMBER, knowledge is power!

Why don't you look up the facts before sharing your ignorant opionon. Or PLEASE tell me where I can buy a automatic firearm legally with just a 5 min osp call. And to buy a ar15, using the federal check has taken me less time then buying a gun in oregon... I don't think you have a \CLUE what your talking about
