I agree with all you say, but I feel your words are wasted. More than 10 generations of the right to bear arms is not going away. I feel safe to walk
the streets of Melbourne, knowing guns are illegal although they are no doubt available on the black market.
The chances of being shot are slim. If I am mugged I can take care of myself, if the attacker has a knife, I still have more chance of walking away
than if he had a gun.
Yes crazy people abound, and more so right now than anytime in recent history.
They may think bearing arms makes them safer, all it does is gives them an easier opportunity to kill if provoked.
Many people lose their lives over minor disagreements, or misunderstandings. Those unfortunate survivors then lose their rights as a citizen and end
up in jail or worse.
Take guns away and there is less likelihood of that happening.
