once upon a time my wife's nephew had a girlfriend her dad didn't want the two together and one day out of frustration he forbid her to see him
and the boy was devastated so the two fathers got into a war of words over the phone and the nephew's father finally told the girls father he was
coming to his house to beat him up!
he went, he got 100 yards from his house and the girls father shot the boys father right in the eye and he died instantly.
imagination, fear, cowardice and a gun in the house lead to this and now.. one man dead and two families destroyed.
i'm all for protecting my family to lethality, in fact i have a shotgun in the closet right next to my front door because "real life" can be every
bit as horrifying, if not more so than tv and movies but this guy had plenty of time to call the police.
the moral of this story is.. "banning" isn't the answer because no one will give up their right to protect their families and you can't know who
will do something as stupid as the father in my story did and i've posted this before.. all this talk about banning guns is the very best
marketing ploy ever.
i bet you that if someone dose a study of statistics of gun sales, "pre-banning talk" rhetoric to present i'm sure we'd all see a huge spike in
sales... anyway... there is no answer because it's all a marketing scheme just like when a bad storm is coming and mass media screams at you to
immediately run to the grocery store to buy milk!!!
furthermore.. every anti-gun pacifist posting here or anywhere i bet they've never suffered a horrific loss and Thank God for that but in that
situation the very first thought would be.. "oh God i wish i had a gun!" i guarantee that. just my opinion.
it's the individual/s not the "gun".
