This gun issue has caused quite a stir among Americans.
People are so quick to blame guns when something happens. It really pisses me off.
Bombs go off and the bombers are blamed. A school stabbing tragedy happens and the person holding the knife is blamed. A school shooting happens and all hell breaks loose with guns being blamed. Seriously?!? I mean, damn, why not put background checks on knives and outlaw crockpots! Haha! Get real people.
Bad people are going to do bad things with ANY object.
Putting a ban on certain weapons won’t stop violence. Expanding background checks won’t make bad guys turn good. A big percentage of kids that go to school with a gun stole the damn thing to begin with. They didn’t purchase it, they stole it.
I’m also tired of hearing this stupid “90%” comment from some people. 90% of Americans never agreed with this gun control bill to begin with. Politicians spit out numbers and percentages all the time. Do your research guys. And the NRA is NOT the mob! Lots of people are acting like the NRA dished out threats and such to Senators about this bill….really?!? The NRA is not backing Senators into a corner and threatening them.
Bottom line: In my opinion, guns are not the problem. People are the problem. People do bad things without a care in the world. They choose to do harm to people, not caring how many others are also hurt by their actions. People hurt people with all kinds of objects. It’s not the object, it’s the individual that chooses to take another person’s life.
