How many ppl are killed from drunk drivers everyday?? Is alcohol illegal? Are CARS being banned for running ppl down or causing a wreck...no. The person behind the wheel is prosecuted...So why do they think to ban guns? The guns didn't shoot themselves, it is the person behind it with issues of some sort. Why not focus on helping fix those problems?
I see forums of ppl saying that they should make ppl that purchase guns go for a psych eval and have a mandatory person designated to come check peoples guns regularly..I WISH SOMEONE WOULD TRY TO TELL MY FIANCE THAT. He served 6 years overseas in the Marine Corp and is not about to let anyone come check his firearms for him..he has also been a hunter since the age of 5 and is well educated in safety and care for his weapons...Aside from that, they are focusing on gunmakers, and what about ppl that buy 2nd hand guns, where no background or info is even required? Just money exchange? How does that work? Can someone that DOESN'T own a gun explain that to my family...PLEASE.
WHAT about these shootings done by cops, that were proven unnecessary? Yet, police still carry guns.
Realize it's the people, even if they are trained to use and carry guns, that sometimes are fighting an unknown battle that causes them to kill unjustly. Like someone said earlier, it's done with hammers, baseball bats, knives, etc.. so do all the companies that make these items need to ban their products?
Yes, guns can do a lot of damage in short periods, but there is someone behind it pulling the trigger. It's the people of the world today that need help.
