Are the strict enough?
The actual process.
When you need to purchase a gun, there is a form called the 4473 form, basically what it is, is a form where you fill out information about yourself, then there is a questioner that you have to fill out, basically you are explaining why you are purchasing the gun. Also it states if you are eligible fir gun purchase, if you lie on this form it is considered a felony and you will be placed in prison for up to five years. (Themakertplace.com)

Some of my main questions/ answers I found
Should the requirements for people to purchase a gun change? My answer for this after researching is yes they should, many people have been getting away with buying guns over the black market (Gallup.com) and also people who should not have guns are getting them because we have a bad and easy process for getting guns.

My second question was, Should guns be aloud in schools, like for teachers? The answer that I came up with was yes they should, after reading about the shooting in Newton I realized that maybe if a teacher had a gun it would saved some lives, however I do see where parents and students would be mad if they found out that their teacher had a gun. The artical that I read on shooting was (cnn.com).
My final question that I had was, What are the main resons why people get guns? When I researched this the answer that came out of it was really interesting, most people get it for protection, but there are some people who said "no reason", this makes me interested because what are these people doing with these guns and why did they purchase them if they had no reason for it?
