The only weapons a civilian is allowed access to are handguns, shotguns and low caliber rifles. You still need to wait however many days to register to purchase most guns and require at least a background check. Unfortunately mental health is no so apparent in a background check.
Thank for the explanation.
Everyone is going on and on about the 2nd amendment without explaining what they actually want to use as weapons. Some pro gun activist (if that's the right word
) make it sound like they want the right to own tanks.
I hate when a topic comes up in politics and all you really hear on main stream news, and even some less main stream news, is all catch phrases and no actual information about the topic.
