I support President Trump's gun position
Particularly more background checks and raising the rifle age to 21. I wish he would include hand guns in that though... The vast majority of gun crime occurs via hand guns but it would be a great start.
Sadly, with the mid terms coming up I doubt this can happen.

How Will raising the age of ownership help? Criminals are already breaking laws.

So an 18 year old can be paid to use an AR15 in combat, or God forbid one day be conscripted to do so, but he shouldn’t be able to purchase the same gun for his personal use?

Do some of you ever read the currents laws? You have to be 21 to buy a handgun.

Why are there any laws at all if criminals ignore them anyway?

In the short term literally nothing will help. Damage has been done. Over time though stricter gun laws can reduce or mitigate the problem.

Notice how countries with stricter gun laws dont have nearly the amount of illegal guns in circulation either?

Sweet, now female college underclassmen have one less defense against sexual predators.

This coming from the side that believes in "rape culture," mind you

Wait, I thought you had to be 21 to purchase a hand gun?

Ugh.

I am a strong 2A supporter. But, this is a false equivalence.

That 18 y/o is given training and is controlled more within the military than almost anywhere else, ever.

The idea that an 18 y/o is just "handed an AR (just for sake of discussion) and it is the same as private purchase is silliness.

The amount of control, training, oversight, rules, etc that are imposed in the military is incredible.

Most other countries don't owe their existence to private gun ownership, so much so, that they decided to enshrine it in their constitution.

It's easy to laugh at you folks because you just utterly do not understand any of the issues involved.

See? Give them an inch, they will take a mile. It's only a start. Death by a thousand cuts.
