The US has poor gun control laws, I don't care what anyone says.
Well, to be fair, yes the laws may not be the best and has many flaws, but I honestly don't think the gun control laws are the main problem. I mean, just my opinion here but from what I am able to understand, the majority of the time the people that get the guns either steal them from someone they know, or they get them in a full legal process. That one guy that did the movie theater shooting last summer, he was your average smart college student who went about it the full legal process.
Anyway, if they are desperate enough to get the guns, they have ways. Think the main problem is the media. People know that if they do something like this they will get all this attention and know they will be talked about. On top of that I feel like if people were more comfortable with society as a whole, maybe they'd feel more secure and safe opening up to someone and getting psychiatric help.
Agree that some gun laws could use some changing, such as how easy it is to get a gun at a gun show, but I feel like the problem itself is bigger than just laws.
