Should gun control be stricter in the United States?

Why shouldn’t guns be allowed?
Guns don’t kill people; people kill people. By making it more difficult for the people of the U.S. to possess firearms, our second amendment is being compromised. This is a slippery slope. If restrictions are implemented, eventually the second amendment will disappear.
Why do some Americans fear gun control?

Do 80\% of gun owners support stronger gun laws?
[W]e know that about 80 percent of gun owners support stronger gun laws like a background check on every gun sale, and only one in 10 gun owners even belongs to the NRA… Everything we do is research and data-based, so all of the laws that we support and prioritize are based on what would save the most amount of lives.
Should civilians own military-grade firearms?
Civilians, including hunters, should not own military-grade firearms or firearm accessories. The Second Amendment of the US Constitution protects individual gun ownership. Gun control laws do not deter crime; gun ownership deters crime. Gun control laws infringe upon the right to self-defense and deny people a sense of safety.
