The Federal Firearms Act of 1938 requires that convicted felons will not be able to purchase guns. There are also some laws about carrying guns near school zones, but this is one law that is not being followed by a lot of people who are involved in mass gun shootings in different parts of the United States. The Brady Handgun Violence Protection Act will require background checks on most firearm purchasers.
The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act will allow different purchasers to carry concealed firearms in different parts of the United States. The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act of 2005 will prevent the manufacturers of firearms not to be held liable when a crime has already been committed.
There are a lot of civilians in the United States who own guns, and this is considered to be normal for them. Most people can just go to a gun shop and purchase a gun as long as their age will allow them to purchase. Those who are under 18 years old are not allowed to purchase guns. There are also some guns that will come with a higher age requirement.
People should be aware of these rules, and they should always show a valid ID when they purchase. Those who own guns are also required to keep the guns in a safe place. The requirement is that those who do not own a gun license should not be able to access it. Unfortunately, there are a lot of kids who have access to the guns of their other family members.
