The previous administration, as well as all the current Dem candidates, want to do any number of things to prevent mass shootings. Examples: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...hool-shooting-saturday-radio-address/1770609/ http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/03/23/obama-urges-vote-on-assault-weapons-ban/ http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ssault-weapons-ban-background-checks/1837793/ Ok then... -I have a license to own a gun. To get that license I had to show a need to own a gun. -I have a license to carry a gun. To get that license I had to undergo training and undergo a fingerprinted background check. -All of my guns are registered; the state has their make, model, serial number and ballistic fingerprint on record. -I had to undergo at least one background check before I bought all of my guns, including those I bought in private sales and those I bought from the federal government – which required fingerprints -All of my guns and their magazines were purchased legally between 1995 and 2003. How do these things prevent me from shooting up a school or a mall or a movie theater?
