Okay, I’ll Comment On The Mass Murder
I want to say up front that I do not own a gun, and there are no guns in my house/home/life. I do not feel that I need one. That is my choice. I am totally against the government telling people what they can own, what they can put in their bodies, whether they can have an abortion, what drugs they can take, who they can marry and on and on….
Let me be clear here. Piers Morgan is a complete dick.
The argument for gun ownership does not always make sense, but the argument against it always makes no sense.
The idea that there are gun free zones does make them targets. Nobody seems willing to discuss apples to apples on this issue. I feel safer knowing that grandma could and would shoot the bad guy in the back of the head if someone were to go postal in a shopping mall.
Yes, it does not make intuitive sense but if there are to be guns, and there will be, it makes sense that honest citizens have the right and the means to protect themselves. Piers argues a stupid argument… that regulation and prohibition will fix the problem. Prohibition has NEVER worked for anything… EVER.
Prohibition creates black markets. This shooter did not obey the law. Future such wack-jobs will also not obey the law and if there is a black market they will use it. Prohibition will not solve the problem. There is no single solution answer, only options to try to see if they work. Different cultures which are gun free are not applicable to this situation no matter how much you might want them to be. Most of the gun owners in America are Christians. Work that one out. Prohibition does not work. Please work to find an answer, but do not suggest that laws will fix it.
So please stop thinking that prohibition will fix the problem.
