There's a still a lot of talk about banning guns, and what could have prevented this shooting and that one. And, how if there were no guns in the U.S.A. these people wouldn't be dead. And, other bullshit that ignorance brings with it. And, then I come across a photoshop of Timothy McVeigh...
...and then read a comment on it about banning guns, because the majority of murders are committed by people with guns. And, it kinda set wrong with me.
It's not so much the ban-don't ban guns argument, but the ignorance of people that want to make the arguments. Blaming crime and murder on guns, is like blaming speeding tickets and wrecks on cars. Unless you drive a Toyota, your car isn't going to drive down the road it's self and run into things and people, nor is it going to drag race the neighbours Prius. My Colt will not kill anyone whilst lying on my nightstand. Nor will an Uzi get up and make its way to a school and just start killing people. Someone, usually a person of the human persuasion, has to start the car and press the skinny pedal to make the car speed and run into things, just like I have to pick up my Colt to kill an intruder. Just like some picked on kid has to pick up that Uzi and carry the sumbitch to the damn school and shoot it up.
If we ban guns to reduce crime, we may as well ban cars to reduce accidents, ban sex to prevent teen pregnancy, ban natural gases and wood to prevent fires, ban male-female integration to prevent rape, ban knives to prevent cuts, ban... Hell lets just ban everyfuckingthing... Here's ya a tent and a stick. You'll be safe now.
Now something I found funny on The Chive.
