Being honest here- I would rather see guns banned than kids killed.
In a world of decent people, that choice wouldn’t need to be made.
We don’t live in a world of decent people.
Sadly, the NRA does not agree….. and therefore neither do the republican “lawmakers” they own.
Would to God that we would be able to ban all guns, I mean BAN GUNS, not remove the right to own them, not remove them from a segment of the population. I mean ban guns as in making guns and extinct species, and yes INCLUDING MINE. However the government cannot guarantee to anyone that bad guys will not have access to guns. Banning drugs had no impact in its use, and now some states are surrendering to its users by enacting laws to allow them for “recreational use”. Drug prohibition did not make the use of drugs less common. The extreme reverse would be that, since the government cannot completely ban guns – unless someone tells me how – as a product, in order to avoid this current carnage the ownership of guns technically equivalent to the ones owned by the bad guys and the government must remain free. Otherwise government should arm and train everyone and even make gun use mandatory (again, the extreme!). Point being: if there is one gun, there must be another! BAN GUNS as a product! But, may be not… evil people would use cars, trucks, box cutters… it is not like it has not been done before and recently.
