Americans overwhelmingly support the general proposition that greater safeguards are consistent with protecting gun rights and support certain specific measures to keep guns away from felons, violent misdemeanants, and other dangerous people.

Nothing really new - we all know there's too many guns out there and the laws need to be changed

The USA still behaves like in the old Wild West. Forbid all guns. Period.

When you need a gun it's a little late for training. Criminals love a soft target. But in the urbanization people forget that there are vast differences in living in rural America. It is unreasonable to expect urban people who have no experience to understand rural and vice versa. Stand your ground is a very good law. Aggressive people can't have their way with the victim. Criminals fear guns. Just that simple.

Noted. I'll stick with Birgit's comment to Forbid all guns. I'm tired of beating around the bush while the NRA pushes their deadly stand. The majority of those living in Great Britain & Australia are very happy in their lives since their countries just outright banned guns. That is fine by me! If the NRA pushback means that they will defend all guns to the point of arming every U.S. citizen (so the CEO's in charge can be multi-billionaires), then I can take the radically opposite position.
