I did read most or all of the posts in this thread.
Today I realized gun haters may be a misapplied term.
I think they are result haters...
Guns are just the intermediate point. Guns don't kill, people do.
People are the problem, not the tool. The tool does make it easier though...as compared to a baseball bat or chainsaw, can of gas, or a knife. But they all work.
question for those that care to think on it.
why is it that when a cop is shot, "we" blame the shooter? But when there is a mass shooting, the tool used, the ammo, the manufacturers are blamed?
Rhetorical question to ponder on.
