I think the most depressing aspect of the Gun Control or Not argument is the argument itself.
The Gun people feel safer if they have a gun to defend themselves.
The anti gun people feel safer if there aren't so many guns out there.
Both groups want the same thing, they want to be safer... from what? - People who want to kill random other people (the problem).
But nobody seems very interested in the problem, does that mean we have given up trying to solve it?
I've seem articles stating that people with mental health issues are unfairly stigmatized as being violent when very few people with mental health
issues are violent. They say people who want to kill random other people are a different thing than people with mental or emotional problems.
It's not a natural thing to want to kill everyone, what is wrong with or what has happened to these people. How do we fix this problem?
I think no one wants to address the real problem because it difficult to understand and to solve.
It's much easier to blame an easier target, guns, politics, the president, whatever, just don't mention the real problem.
Because we have given up on trying to solve that?
