These laws were then doubled down on in the proceeding decades, a famous example being Ronald Reagan when he was their governor. The racist reasons are now replaced with fear of guns.

    Anyway, Trump can't do anything for California or Arizona's droughts, they're state issues that can only be fixed from within the state. You should vote for those local representatives to fix the problems.

    And it doesnt matter how you try to impede gun purchases, or how many restrictions you make. The people you dont want to have guns, will always find a way to get then

    Animation is a dying art, those who choose to ignore it, ride on live action.
    We thinkers, innovators, motivators, engineers of the mind, are ones who seek to bring animation back from the dead, and save television from the evils of live action shows. We carry our predecessors work on our shoulders. We will not tremble from their amazing work, but we shall rise higher!

    I disagree on your second point — it's just that the culture around guns in the US and the number of guns makes gun laws' effect minimal, this would be different in countries that have a different perception of guns and a smaller amount of them.
