Only 3% of Americans own half of the nation's guns

Only 3% of Americans own half of the nation's guns

Big picture, we've been losing to the NRA.

The effectiveness of gun control can be called to question since the Center for Crime Prevention has determined that 99 percent of mass shootings have happened in gun-free areas.

Since 1995, there have been 20 mass firearm incidents that were named "deadliest USA mass shooting", according to CNN.

But this isn't about numbers - it is about the lives that have been taken from us too soon. I understood hunting back in the day when one had to hunt if they were going to have meat on the table. Shock, thoughts, prayers. Once we're done with all that we will get to work to dismantle this industry; we will not panic and head straight out to buy a gun.

Stephen Paddock, the 64-year-old who carried out the worst shooting in modern us history earlier this month, used bump stocks to convert 12 of his guns to fire at much higher rates than semi-automatic rifles usually do. "There are people who were killed, injured, and suffered emotional distress who would not have been, if Paddock had not possessed a bump stock".

- The U.S.is the country that owns the most guns: More than half of the total number worldwide, despite having only 5% of the world's population.

One segment deals with how and why research into the public health implications of gun violence was halted in the '90s.

Numerous students at Oklahoma State University come from backgrounds where they have had a lot of experience shooting and learning gun safety.

"Concealed weapons permits are-shall issue and open carry is legal without a permit".

■ In 2016, 15,079 people were killed by a firearm (non-suicides). "Local gun laws are prohibited".

■ 12 firearms in his hotel suite were outfitted with bump stocks, devices used to make semi-automatic guns behave like fully-automatic machine guns. But on October 2, CNN reported that long-term trends tracked by Gallup show support for gun control rises after mass shootings, then fades as the incidents become more distant. What they found, instead, was that this wasn't actually the case. Additionally, The United States has more deaths by guns than any other developed nation in the world. Again, our country wins by a long shot. If enacted, new purchase reporting schemes will be the first stop on the way to a national firearm registry.

After the events October 1st in Las Vegas, where 20,000 people went from unitedly singing "God Bless America" to becoming the victims of the biggest mass shooting in American history, we have begun to discuss politics.

Slide Fire Solutions, the Texas-based company that is considered the top manufacturer of "bump stocks" did not return an email message sent Tuesday through its Facebook page seeking comment.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has filed a bill in the Senate that would ban bump stocks and other devices that increase the rate of fire of semi-automatic weapons. Sen. Activating this ban will not alter our USA gun rights.

Dallas Taylor, a University of Southern Mississippi sophomore sports coaching major, affirmed this side of the gun control debate. Yes, firearms are used for recreational activities and protection, but would we need such extensive protection if there was more control over who obtains these weapons?
