This is exactly why I cannot join in the sentiment of completely non-regulated gun sales.
Yes, criminals will get guns anyways, and yes, people should be able to defend themselves in case of need.
But some people are not born criminals, they can become so just because they are mentally sick, or young and clumsy, or old and clumsy... and wouldn't
have become murderers if it wasn't so easy to have a gun. Not everyone is capable of handling the responsibility.
I prefer the system here, where we have to renew our licenses each year, and we are checked on to see if we are keeping them safely and correctly,
know how to use them correctly, are practicing at a club regularly.
I have an aquaintence (lives in the US) who is completely nuts, and is prone to fits of crazy fury every other day, for nothing and everything. Her
rants are completely insane and she has destroyed her family . She also posts tons of pictures of her guns on Facebook, bragging that she'll not
hesitate to kill anyone who bothers her.
I am sure I am going to see an article like this about her one day. I already feel sad for her kids and husband.
