sorry but why should other gun owners apologise for the actions of someone else they have nothing do do with?
Do you also think all car drivers should be out protesting every time a kid gets knocked down.
But do you think all Muslims should apologise for killing some people in France by a small group of extremists?
Now I am no advocate of guns but i don't really see why a gun owner in Texas should be out apologising if a gunman in Alaska kills a couple of
I don't know if you are trying to draw a parallel between violent Islamic extremism and guns. I am guessing you are and at the same time trying to
point out that people demand that the whole Muslim community gets on their feet every time there is a terrorist attack, yet the same is not expected
when someone shoots up a school in Sandy Hook of gun owners. It is a good point. Kind of.
Because don't know if this is a fair comparison to draw or not, I can see some problems with it.
Some might say that when we talk about the Islam we are talking about a identifiable group in our society who can have a direct influence potentially
on the actions of these terrorists, they all have a link through their sheared faith. Owning a gun is not like that, gun owners are not connected in
any real way other than that they own a gun, which is not quite as profound as sharing a religion.
Additionally I am sure that most gun owners would say that they oppose mass shootings, its just that they do not want their "freedom to bare arms"
taken away from them as a result.
This is a thought provoking subject however and I can see what your getting at, why does one group have to come out in their masses and apologise for
the actions of a few in their members. Yet the same is not expected of gun owners, but like i said above that comparison does have its problems.
So suppose it could be argued from the other side but I doubt that you are going to get many American gun owners to read as far down as the disclaimer
and I doubt that some will understand the deeper meaning of the thread.
