Guns don’t kill people — bullets do.
Ten thousand times a year people in America are murdered by guns. In the civilized countries of the world only a few dozen or maybe even just a handful are gunned down every year.
Are Americans a thousand times more likely to be homicidal maniacs than people in other countries? Maybe; but that is another story.
The difference is — based upon the Second Amendment to the Constitution — millions more Americans buy murder toys than anyone else in the world.
I won’t argue about hunting for food.
Most of the guns people buy today are only good for murdering people. Many are machine guns that are supposedly not machine guns because you have to pull the trigger every time you want someone to die.
What are the first four words of the Second Amendment? “A well-regulated militia.”
Well, a well-regulated militia does not murder its own children.
