Response to Hoyt (Reply #23)

27. Which people have no business owning a gun? I'm curious.

 

Right now in most of the US, one can purchase a firearm with a minimum of paperwork and a quick Brady check. Even in the areas with stricter gun control, any adult of at least 21 years can own a modern firearm after at most a few weeks (with the exception of Washington DC IIRC), unless they're a convicted felon or have a record of domestic abuse.

This means that at least 95% (or so) of adults in the US can own a gun. What percentage do you this should be, and what would one have to do to qualify for firearms ownership...if you had your way?
