While this may contribute an ounce of help, it will never cure the mass shooting epidemic that faces the United States today. Americans deserve legislation that aggressively tackles the firearms debacle that plagues our country. I’m not calling for the banning of specific weapons or the banning of any weapons. What I will call for is the one time federal requirement of a psychiatric evaluation and passage of a firearms safety course(standards set by states) before purchase of a firearm from a licensed dealer can occur. As it is impossible to know who may commit violence with guns, we must treat all buyers as having the potential to do so. The requirements may even serve as a deterrent to those looking to commit violence. Perpetrators may be less likely to purchase a weapon if they knew they would have to submit to a psychiatric evaluation and attend a weapons safety course. My ideas may not be the solution but I have not seen our Congress take steps as serious as I propose to ensure the safety of American citizens.
