       It is apparent with the number of mass shootings in the United States; there is a present issue with the process in which one person can obtain a gun. In Japan, the death toll of gun deaths is rarely ever above 10 per year with a population of 127 million. On the contrary, the USA has seen nearly 40000 deaths from firearms each year. This petition was created with the intention of trying to envoke change to the process in which guns are bought in the United States in order to prevent senseless massacres of innocent civilians.

       In order to buy a gun in Japan, you must pass a mental health evaluation and a background check that involves interviewing friends and family members. I'm proposing the same type of checks on guns in the US to prevent these avoidable deaths, for the majority of mass shootings, are done by those who are mentally ill. The Purpose of this petition is not to take away gun rights, but to ensure that those who purchase military-grade weapons are mentally suitable to handle the responsibility that comes with owning a weapon of that caliber.
