Since the Orlando nightclub shooting, people have been debating gun control laws to death. I completely missed this well-articulated response by President Obama (as seen in a PBS open forum in the video below) just 2 weeks before the shooting which discussed the problems with gun debate in the United States, and what kind of measures we should take as a society to discuss gun laws in an intelligent, constructive way.

The Dem Party's platform is to restrict guns for the 99%. How can ANYONE believe a single word Obama says when his ACTIONS say the opposite? "If you like your guns, you can keep your guns! Period!!" That's not what the rest of the DNC says... >>> And BY DEFINITION new laws would only apply to the 'good guys' ffs...

Makes sense; we can't trust you to board a plane because you might be dangerous, then we cannot allow you to purchase a firearm. I don't see the problem with this.

and what would you change? Ya lets just give the ability to deny someone a right with a list that you're not told you're put on, has a bad record like putting a child on, senator Kennedy, ect and doesn't give you a way to dispute it....Ya that won't get abused.

Indeed. A huge part of the governments job is to protect its citizens from criminals at home, foreign attackers and while doing so also to uphold and defend The Constitution. A tough job no doubt but if the current government can't handle it a new one is needed.

Doesn't matter how many times a President says that, people will still believe he's coming for guns.

as long as there are people who are against gun control, there will always be people, like me, who will argue against them.
