This iReport is part of an assignment:
The current federal gun control laws only limit who can buy or sell fire arms. It limits people that are mentally unstable and fugitives of the law. However state laws can vary from state to state. Iowa you need a permit to by a hand gun but you don’t need a permit to buy a rifle or a shotgun. You are able to have a gun with you were ever you are except for schools and places marked with a sign saying no weapons allowed.
I personally think the laws are mostly fine the way they are, but I think they should make it so you don’t haft to have a permit to by hand guns in Iowa. I think if they add anymore laws it will be restricting our right to bear arms. People think that the mass murders happening are because of guns but that isn’t true it’s the person that is holding the gun not the gun itself. The real problem is our government doesn’t due enough towards helping and finding out who the mentally ill are.
Over all I think people shouldn’t make a decision blind they should do research before making a decision. And that they should focus on finding mentally ill people then trying to take away our rights.
