The mass murders in Buffalo and Uvalde were not the result of the "boyfriend loophole" or

uncertainty about who a "gun seller" is.

They were the result of 18 year old kids being able to legally purchase rifles specifically designed to kill people---AR 15s---and multiple high capacity magazines.

They will still be able to after the much-praised "gun legislation" passes---if it does.

1. It will be significant when it comes to all forms of gun violence

Closing that loophole was one of the better parts of the legislation.

3. Most mass shooters have had a history of domestic violence

and in some cases, it was things that would be part of this loophole.

4. I'd like to see the age for possesion and transfer of semi-auto to 21 or 25.


But any reasonable gun control is a win.

I'd like to see universal background checks, too, but most the big news mass shootings were bought with NICS background checks.
