To blame guns on gun-related violence is ridiculous. Why not just go ahead and talk about banning alcohol? After-all, drunken drivers kill far more
people every year than domestic gun violence. Why don't we ban alcohol? We don't even mention it because parts of every class of America
participates in the consumption of alcohol.
The truth is, and always has been that people kill people. It isn't the gun's fault, nor the alcohol. It is the irresponsible, selfish jacka$$ that
disregards the lives of others.
So go ahead, blame the guns, and let them scare you into giving up another freedom.
As expected, now every anti gun person is getting on their soap box. What people dont realize is:
There have been people doing senseless harm to others since the dawn of mans existence. By the way, you dont need a gun to take out a group of people.
War was much more brutal when men were bashing each others skulls in with mace's, clubs, and battle axes. Literally spilling your opponents blood on
Personally, I would rather be shot than stabbed, and I would rather be stabbed than have my head bashed in with a large piece of hardened steel with
Also, guns aren't ever going to NOT be manufactured, so there will always be ways to get them. Look at what happened during prohibition times with
alcohol.....if you take away the law abiding citizens guns, than only the criminals will have them. That sounds great....
If I was in that theater, I would have been the only one NOT screaming and running. Even in my decrepit state and age, I would unload every last round
I had on the shooter, and possibly saved lives. Had I been a younger man, I would have ran up behind him and slashed his throat.
Understand this, be it guns, bombs, or bows and arrows, people will always find ways to do harm to others. This is why people such as myself carry
weapons at all times. Because not only do I not want to be a victim, but with psychopaths out there, I dont want to be standing idle whilst they do
harm unto innocent people.
