It doesn't seem to end. Last week some douchebag shoots up a bar, this week it's a movie theater. Apparently this is what makes America great right? Anyone can go buy a gun, legally or illegally, and shoot as many people as they can.
Of course if more people had guns then more people would have gotten shot. Maybe even the shooter. Or maybe not.
Sorry, but guns don't equal freedom. Not in this day and age. The notion that gun owners can form a militia and overthrow the government is nothing less than ludicrous. Hunting is a pastime, not a necessity. And target shooting is equally well accomplished with air guns as with gunpowder.
We don't ~need guns in our lives. But the NRA has the money and power to jam the notion down everyone's throat that guns are essential to the American Way. As far as I'm concerned it only helped another ten people die needlessly.
