Even Bruce Willis Can See the Problems With the Proposals

In case you aren’t aware, this quote came from the Die Hard star, Bruce Willis. I think he captured it perfectly. He makes a valid point that these incidences were not committed by a weapon, but in fact by people who were missing a few marbles.

How do we take care of this problem? NOT by stepping on our rights, that’s for sure. We have given much thought to people that aren’t in the right frame of mind, and that’s when they say we should do background checks to make sure that the buyer is legit. Now, let’s think of the issues with that answer…

1. How many people with a faulty background are going to get their guns from stores?
      2. How exactly does this stop the sale of guns on the street?
      3. What about a ‘normal’ person that already owns guns and has a sudden ‘mental breakdown’?

Of course, 1 & 2 have already been discussed, but has anyone thought about #3? Even if the renovation of weapons goes into effect, the background checks and all the extra security, what is stopping them? Everybody has issues and everyone has different methods to deal with them. Some people will make their issues known to those around them, but some will go quietly about sinking deeper into the dark abyss.

When they break, who’s going to know? How are ANY of these ‘new’ precautions going to stop them from breaking down, grabbing from their collections and doing as they please with it? That’s right, there will be no one. There is always going to be psychopaths, sociopaths and people with mental insecurities that will get through the system. Isn’t that what they have considered the perpetrators in these events anyways? People with mental issues or being a sociopath?
