What these gaps in gun control mean is that purchasers of firearms who commit violent crimes have probably done so legally. Each year more guns are produced and purchased and more individuals go unchecked as they arm themselves for that point in the future where they will decide to use their destructive arms.

The government is debating about guns and if the age range should go higher or lower. This can change America's future by a lot, not in a good way like how caterpillars change into butterflies. Guns should be held by people with experience like police officers or the military and guns should be held by adults at least in their 30’s because, kids and new adults can do crazy things, people can use guns for harmful activities, and a mass shooting occurs because of legal gun selling. First, when kids, young or new adults have guns, they can do crazy things. On the other hand, older people are wiser and lived through life and know what can happen.
New assault weapons came and ended more lives. Gangsters might be gone ,but criminals are still around and they use assault weapons for their preference of mass murdering.
