that being said... it's kind of ridiculous to shy away from making guns harder to get "because the bad guys will get guns anyway." if making guns harder to get prevents even one shitty person from getting a weapon then the reform would be worth it imo.

and making guns harder to get won't prevent GOOD people from getting guns, either -- if you want a gun and you aren't psycho, you will be able to pass the stricter tests, and you will get a gun. there just needs to be a system in place. obviously I know it'll be more complicated than that, but at the end of the day, the ~complicated process~ will stop creepers. period.
