In the US 1) pass an 'Instant' Background Check 2) Buy a Gun 3)Kill a child or some other 'Expendable' marginalized citizen and blame the victim for frightening you into having to stand your ground...

Many Americans can buy a gun in less than an hour. In some countries, the process takes months. Here are the basic steps for how most people buy a gun in 15 of them. Many countries have exceptions for specialized professions, and local laws vary.
Many states have additional buying restrictions, including waiting periods and expanded background checks. Roughly a third of American gun owners buy guns without a background check, which federal law does not require when buying directly from a private seller.
Some countries require buyers to accurately hit a target or demonstrate safe handling procedures.
Authorities in South Africa, Australia and India may talk to people you know who can vouch for you or raise red flags.
Mexico, Russia and South Africa have thriving black markets for guns. Only one store in Mexico sells guns legally, compared with more than 50,000 retail stores in the United States.
In response to a 1996 mass shooting, Australia made guns a privilege, not a right. Gun owners must provide a valid reason for owning a weapon, such as farming or hunting, and gun clubs must inform the authorities of inactive members.
Austria requires different steps to get a hunting rifle, including passing a written exam and shooting test.
