Would you say we have a nationwide epidemic of planes crashing into towers and trucks being used as bombs?
Trying to use singular events to absolve blame from an instrument of death that is being used to kill people daily is like comparing apples to rhinoceros sh!t.
When 10,000 people start dying every year from kamikaze airplanes and truck explosions like they do gun violence we can have the conversation about whether planes and trucks are the issue.
I am more interested in resolving issues that actually exist.
My arguement is the apples....yours is the rhinoceros sh!t.
You ban guns and the only people who will have them are the criminals....and that is a fact.
I have one gun for protection of my family and home. I am properly trained on it and it will only come out when it is needed. And believe me, I will use it if needed.
Someone breaks into my home, they are there for one reason....to harm me and my family. If they do, it will be the last decision and mistake they make.
Again, if you want to lobby for more consistent policies and regulations to purchase and own guns....training course, regristration, background checks, etc...then I can buy into that.
If you think you should ban them....no.
