I believe it is very important for each state to have strict gun laws regarding who can purchase guns. Considering the fact that it is so easy to purchase a firearm in America, guns are constantly being bought legally and sold to people in the streets illegally. It is these guns that are being sold into the streets that are being used for armed robberies and other malicious crimes.
