Pro to the question "Should More Gun Control Laws Be Enacted?"
"I've seen what guns do in America. I'm gun owner. I know about guns and I have guns, and I believe we need reasonable gun control. Many countries have all kinds of safeguards, and none have the violence we have—there were 11 murders in Chicago last weekend. I talked to the president and vice president about reasonable background checks—that’s all I'm talking about. We're the richest country on the planet and we have the most violence. All the capitals of Western Europe combined don't have as many homicides as Chicago does…
We've got to start somewhere, with reasonable gun control. We need to have what this country doesn't have: A reasonable mental health system so when you go for a gun, they can see if you're under psychiatric care — all the things you need to do in Canada or New Zealand or Australia or Japan. The things I'm proposing to the NRA are so simple and so much-needed because we're a country of 350 million with about 450 million guns. There's a way to start, and that's some reasonable gun registration and background checks. So when people get upset about that — I'm a gun owner; no one's gonna take my shotguns away or my 9 millimeters away. I'm probably the only guy in America who needs guns, I get so many death threats from nutcases."
