if there were no gun laws, ppl would not just suddenly 'behave'. no way. ppl would be using guns for immediate solutions to road rage and jealousy and everything else.
lol if ppl could, they would be blowing away anyone who pissed them off!
and sure ppl have always been killing each other but a gun is an immediate threat as opposed to say a spear or something.. you dont have to engage anyone up close or anything with a gun.
Ever watch a movie and commented that it seemed like nobody in the entire movie could shoot straight? Well it's pretty accurate. I have shot thousands of rounds through a handgun. I can tell you it isn't nearly as easy as it would seem. 99% of gun owners could barely hit a target at 25 yards. Forget trying to hit a moving person. Any hits would be pure luck. They pretty do have to be right on top of each other.
I'm very much in favor of the 2nd Amendment. When you disarm a people, tyranny is soon to follow. That said, I am also in favor of better background checks, education and training. The problem is that this subject, like many others, is always presented as extremes. Total ban or total freedom. It turns out that nature prefers, and runs best on, moderation.
Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
