Gun Control

Election issue 2016

Why it matters

As it stands now, people can acquire a large variety of firearms from automatic rifles to high powered pistols, and dispite best efforts of the government to try to stop people who should not have guns from acquiring them, there are still many loopholes that allow people who should not be able to buy guns get guns.And because of these loopholes and the fact that you can purchase a bushmaster assault rifle or a g18 auto pistol in the first place, are all prime factors in many mass shooting and gun violence in america.

Republican view on the issue.

Donald Trump and the republican party's view on the issue is that they just think that stronger background checks for the purchasing of firearms and stronger punishments for people who use guns violently. Every time congress tries to pass a bill helping the issue, it is always voted down and the republicans claim it is infringing on there right to bear arms, but they forget that when that was made everybody had a gun because the guns were either muskets or flintlock pistols, armed solders patrolled the streets, and the guns fired one shot and had to be reloaded( which that process in its self took 15 second to reload if you were a trained solider.

Democratic view on the issue

Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party's view on gun control is that they are trying to change it and make it stricter and safer and limit the types of guns you can buy, which is fine but then a bunch of annoying people say that its their right and that they are protecting their families from invaders, which i get and respect but a robber will be just as scared of a pistol than of a AR or PDW, they all kill people just as good as one an other, and thats if you even want to kill someone, if the guy gets shot, 9/10 times he/she will hit the floor in tears, and if he doesn't, well odds are your gun has more than one bullet in it, so shoot him/her again. Hilary wants to take on the gun lobby, expand background checks and close the dangerous loop holes, make it so that if your on the no fly list for suspected plots of terror, you can't buy a gun, and keep guns out of the hands of people that should not have them.
