So, what to do? Can't we agree that a 10-day waiting period and extensive background check to purchase a gun should be the bare minimum nation-wide?

In a word, no.

Gun regulations correlate with lower gun violence. That's just a fact.

Actually it's not. Explain Vermont. No CCW or LTC. Really, no gun laws to speak of.

Did you know ANYTHING about statistics? VT is obviously an outlier, but on the average the correlation holds up.

South Dakota, North Dakota, it doesn't. In South Dakota you go to the Sheriff, who just hands you a little piece of paper that he signed. Boom, carry a firearm. I grew up there, there are guns EVERYWHERE. Any of the homicides that happen are usually stabbings in Rapid City. Gangs are bad and the homeless drink and fight a lot....
