Yes, another topic. Sue me.

Anyway, I'm not one of those leftest nutjobs that thinks "ban all guns!", but... I mean, something has to give.

Restrict certain people from owning guns, and maybe have a more rigorous screening process, guards at schools. Something. Anything.

I live in Kentucky, but don't own a gun, and I Guarantee you if I wanted to go on a mass shooting spree, I could have it done by the end of the day.

I'm considering homeschooling my son, jeez.

Who?

How?

And..? If you wanted to attack people with a chainsaw, could you have it done by the end of the day? If you wanted to run over a bunch of people, could you have it done by the end of the day? If you wanted to burn down a preschool, could you have it done by the end of the day? If you wanted to use a machete to hijack a school bus full of children, could you have it done by the end of the day?

I’m as bothered as you but you cannot be 100% safe ever.
I don’t know what the answer is, we’re just f***ing animals.
We’ve been killing each other for millennia and will continue to.
Sometimes it's what you don't do that makes you who you are.

In other words, thinking is hard so you won’t do it.

They never learn.
-Chainsaw: The inventor of this device was trying to cut down trees quicker, not people.
-Car: Invented to travel faster, not run over people.
-Matches, Fuel, etc.: Not envisioned as murder weapons.
-Machete: A tool to cut through thick vegetation, not envisioned as a murder weapon.

GUN: A tool invented to kill...period.

You're not going to get gun control until you eradicate the obstruction.
That means 60 democrats in the senate.
That means ending gerrymandering and instituting house reform.
And most of all that means a voting population with enough convictions and firmament who doesn't flip from side to side buying lies of the party on defense while the other is trying to govern.

Get 60 in the senate. Get more than half the house. Get a democratic president. And get "independents" and "moderates" to stop going roost to roost based on a whim. You have to make legislators confident that they can do what's right and not get punished by a retaliation. You don't have that right now.

When you get all of that, then you can move. Then you will get your gun control, and there won't be any desperate please for something that isn't going to happen.

That goes the same for ending trickle down, doing campaign finance reform, gun control, eliminating the state war on abortion, healthcare reform, immigration reform...eveything.

Stop trying to run the sink with a clog in it. Remove the clog.

...

Where to begin with this silliness. I ALMOST don't even know how to respond.

Let's see. A gun fires lethal projectiles, and it's easily concealed. You could see and hear a chainsaw coming, and probably get away from the person. A vehicle is limited to where you could run people over. Where I live, there's not exactly crowds of people on sidewalks. Burning down a preschool? I guess you could do that, but where would you start? If you're using gasoline, people might notice you poring it all over the place. Is there a kitchen with a gas stove that you could leave on for a while? Machete on a bus? I guess there is a first for everything.

The point is: Gun has ease of use, mobility, you can carry it on your person, broad spectrum relevance, efficiency... There's a multitude of reasons why it's an object of choice for people who decide to go on a killing spree.

Waste your energy on something that has a snowballs chance in hell of happening in this country. Like actually confiscating the illegal guns.
