"Let me give you some examples of what other countries are doing: Virtually every other country requires gun licenses -- most places in the U.S. don’t -- and the licensing is typically much stricter than here. The background check in the United States basically just confirms you’re not a convicted felon, and it doesn’t allow for much police discretion. Other countries have a much higher bar to pass. Sometimes you need people to vouch for you. Sometimes they tell your spouse or ex-spouse that you want to get a gun."

"There’s usually also a waiting period. Almost all of those countries require gun training before you’re able to obtain a gun, and once you get a gun, you have to store it properly. Many other countries don’t let you obtain a handgun without a good reason." Harvard professor Dr. David Hemenway
