You realize how dumb your trolling sounds right? You can't even be bothered to use proper punctuation. So honestly, I doubt anyone would
take anything you have to say seriously as you come off as someone who didn't even complete grade school.
Guns aren't the problem. Don't you think people murdered other people before the invention of firearms? I bet the first tool of murder was a stone.
Don't you think that more mundane things (like automobiles, power tools, tools in general, knives...) kill more then guns do when it comes to choice
of murder weapon? Just like a screwdriver can be used to kill, so can a firearm. It's all how you use it. And insane people will misuse both.
Also, know how they made coc aine illegal? How's that working out? Heroin? Prostitution? Gambling? Because even those these things are
outlawed, guess what? People still get a hold of it and use it. Just like firearms. Back in the 60's, gangs used a simple pistol made out of a
short piece of metal tubing, wooden handle and a nail as a hammer attached to the tubing with a rubber band to shoot people with.
Again, it's not the firearm that's at fault, it's the people who use them.
Also, ask yourself this: When was the last time a criminal followed the law? Let's say they ban firearms. How will this stop criminals from
acquiring firearms through the black market? All you do, is take firearms out of responsible people's hands and place them into criminals. Ever hear
of the term "M.A.D."? It stands for "Mutually Assured Destruction". It's what kept us alive during the cold war with Russia. They couldn't launch a
nuclear attack because they knew we'd launch one back. We'd wipe each other out.
Same with a firearm. If more people carried a concealed weapon and the criminals knew this, they'd think twice before trying to mug someone or go
shoot up a school. We should allow teachers to conceal carry in schools (responsibly). I'll bet you a psychopath will think twice about going into a
school to shoot it up knowing that the teachers are packing.
But all this probably goes over your head. I'm sure you're contempt sitting at home being an armchair-liberal waiting for Santa to bring you presents
because you've been such a good little boy. Right?
As to not veer to far off topic (sorry), I bought a new Canon DSLR, battery grip and a 50mm lens. So I'm still shooting stuff, just not with bullets.
