To get a gun in Japan, first, you have to attend an all-day class and pass a written test, which are held only once per month. You also must take and pass a shooting range class. Then, head over to a hospital for a mental test and drug test (Japan is unusual in that potential gun owners must affirmatively prove their mental fitness), which you’ll file with the police. Finally, pass a rigorous background check for any criminal record or association with criminal or extremist groups, and you will be the proud new owner of your shotgun or air rifle. Just don’t forget to provide police with documentation on the specific location of the gun in your home, as well as the ammo, both of which must be locked and stored separately. And remember to have the police inspect the gun once per year and to re-take the class and exam every three years.
In 2008, the U.S. had over 12 thousand firearm-related homicides. All of Japan experienced only 11, fewer than were killed at the Aurora shooting alone.

If I’m shopping at Target and I see this, I’m calling the cops.  
Seriously.  I don’t care about your fucking rights, I just want to buy some dad jeans and maybe a tub of frosted animal crackers without having to worry about your casually slung assault rifle going off and the bullet ricocheting off the price checker and right into my ass.  Thanks but no thanks.  

but think about it if it was armed black people or hispanic people. They would be considered “thugs” and “criminals”. If it was a group of people from the middle east they would be terrorists, But because it’s like 800 different shades of mayo they’re using their 2nd amendment rights…smdh.

Alex Jones said “violent crime has gone up” in the UK “with strict gun laws” while preaching “guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” The point of strict gun legislation is not to stop violent crime - everyone would love to do that but when it comes down to it, guns really don’t kill people. People actually are the ones who do it.
The thing is, they are able to kill more people with the aid of guns. Unstable people, criminals, and even normal people should be subject to background and mental health checks. We should have to have a gun license that requires a test to get. Clips should have a limit, just like drivers have a speed limit.
If violent crime has gone up, that isn’t because of gun law. Because murders have gone down - it has halved since 2002. Number of people murdered - which you are most likely to be if you are shot.

think-progress:

  1. Banning high-capacity ammunition. 
  2. Closing the ‘gun show loophole.’ 
  3. Making the database of who cannot buy guns effective.
  4. Regulating where and how ammunition is purchased.
  5. Requiring handguns to be registered. 
  6. Regulating how gun licenses are issued. 
  7. Raising the age of legal handgun ownership to 21.
  8. Requiring the reporting of stolen guns. 

And the dumb ones? Take a guess.
