For every responsible? gun owner there's half a dozen nut jobs just waiting to go off
I am not a gun advocate and that statement is incorrect. I can see you have a passion for this topic but that not a factual statement.
Okay, it's not factual.... wasn't supposed to be. The point was that while there maybe be responsible people with guns, there's people who should never have them... and if taking away the right to bear arms means taking it away from 'responsible gun owners as well as the nut jobs, then so be it. The right to LIFE comes before any so-called right to carry a gun.
Now your really grabbing at straws and insulting people who are clear minded/thinking responsible adults that don't require hand holding to get through life.
Not insulting anyone... when 'responsible' society demands the right to bear arms, it demands the same right for those nut jobs who go on murderous shooting sprees as well. So yes, every pro-gunner indirectly puts the gun in the hands of the lunatic mass murderer as well. If anyone is offended/insulted by this truth, then tough titties, I cannot, will not apologise for conveying it.
Sadly, the US Government doesn't implement gun control because it doesn't have the balls and fears voter backlash... and voters won't give up their guns because they live in gun dependent society that's gripped in fear... so glad I live someplace else, where I can enjoy real freedom [from fear].
