The gun solution we're not talking about 4
Universal background checks won't fix America's gun crisis. But there's something else that might.


It seems like after every mass shooting, politicians talk about expanding background checks for gun buyers. But background checks don't actually do a great job of keeping dangerous people from getting guns. What does? A licensing system, where before you can buy a gun, you need a license from the state.

* And read the Johns Hopkins research on gun licensing:

That's what we have in canada and it's common sense to have a license for something so dangerous

You are always required to fill out a background check at gunshows. I was at a gun show the other day and everyone was filling them out

The government can’t stop people from getting things, I was a heroin addict for years, and I can tell you that as soon as someone gets booked, someone else takes his place, as soon as some new ban comes out, they switch to using something else. Remember just recently when the FDA “banned” fruit flavored vape pods, yea that went great, they’re really hard to find now. The import market for guns to people who don’t want to or can’t deal with the law is already widespread if you know the right people

Idea: just don't give people guns. If nobody has any, there is no need.
