I have no problem with the guns, I was raised around them, and until just recently I had a CCW and I do have to say, today the mentality has shifted.
I grew up in a area where practically everyone carried or had a rifle in back window of truck. Rarely was the gun pulled in a heated argument or just because to place fear in someone.
Today, we have barbaric and militaristic personalities worn proudly across their cold hearts.
All I can tell you is that I have likely seen more of the US than you have, so my perspective is pretty clear. And to those who are relating the difference in our population numbers as the defining factor in gun crime...well, look at it in a proportional sense, eh?

So first you must be an American to appreciate our rights, and if not for our rights, your country would be still holding the "Magna Carta," and we all know how many individuals died in the late 1600's to the twenty first centuries holding on to a piece of paper which was worthless, now do we not?
from Obama's speech "...As a country we have been thru this too many times...and we are going to have to come together and take meaningful action...regardless of the politics..."

Collateral damage, while just as awful, is not the same as going to a school as a private citizen for the sole purpose of killing anything that moves.
You know it's not the same and yet your brain cannot stop from attacking TPOTUS. If he doesn't react to the shooting he's wrong. If he is visibly upset about the shooting, he's not only wrong but trying to wipe away the 2nd amendment? Are you even serious?
Who the hell said anything about wiping out the 2nd amendment?

The problem for those of us that know how humans behave and know that prohibition has never worked on anything...we look like monsters and freaks for speaking up to defend the Constitution in such a horrible time. "How can you defend freedom in the wake of death of the innocents?"
