What's to blame for the increase in gun violence over the past 30 years? Not enough regulation? Or a moral decline in our society?

Were there more laws 30 years ago? I somehow doubt it. If that is the case, then no, obviously it's not lack of regulation.

a weak ass judicial system with its revolving door prison system is the main reason.

gun violence has decreased since 1993, look it up from a reputable government source not some liberal owned site. do some research of your own

Moral decline and people not being responsible about mental illness.

You can legislate morality. And you certainly can't expect gun laws to stop people who don't pay attention to the law in the first place.

Declines in morals and mental healthcare.

Too many kids are willing to use a gun because they've been "disrespected", that and video games numbing kiss emotions to the result of real violence.

The question has a false premise. Gun crimes have actually decreased over the last 30 years, with particularly large decreases since the '90s.

I'd attribute a lot of the violence to a lack of mental healthcare in the United States and a lack of

owner responsibility. Too many regulations could contribute to the number also.

Good point. I guess the question could be re-stated.

30 years ago one could carry their shotgun or rifle to school knowing they were going hunting after school. This was at a time when prayer and devotion was still allowed in public schools. We are a society that is morally corrupt.
