    US gun debate: Obama unveils gun control proposals

    President Barack Obama has unveiled a raft of sweeping gun control proposals, setting the stage for a showdown with firearms rights advocates.

    Mr Obama called for a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and wider background checks on gun buyers.

    The Democratic president also signed 23 executive actions, which do not require congressional approval.

    He urged Congress:

    • to reintroduce an expired ban on "military-style" assault weapons, such as those used in several recent mass shootings
    • limit ammunition magazines to 10 rounds
    • introduce background checks on all gun sales; currently private sales and some sales at gun shows, constituting about 40% of the national total, are exempt
    • pass a ban on possession and sale of armour-piercing bullets
    • introduce harsher penalties for gun-traffickers, especially unlicensed dealers who buy arms for criminals
    • finally approve the appointment of the head of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives

    I just through this action more people accept that we don't live in the world we used to live in.
    And that a persons personal right (like mine to race other cars on the highway) is simply not a right that we can afford to exercise anymore.

    Why?
    Cause it's danergous!

    Is it very necessary at the present to introduce a gun control proposal? Can this proposal protect the society from gun attacks?

    Do American people really need to own guns?

    I am not living in the USA. That's why I'm not sure how people here think of owning guns
