There is a certain power in having a gun. Its a responsibility. When I look out my window thru my scope and someone walks by in my scope I don't feel any of temptation or rush. My finger is not even on the trigger. I'm just checking the view and range ...
Guns are no more dangerous than baseball bats or hockey sticks or golf clubs or tennis rackets and those are wielded a lot more often! In essence guns are less dangerous. No one is swinging one around trying to hit something with an impact that could dismember or smash body parts ... unless of course they run out of ammo
No, a gun has to be "turned on" first with a safety button. And a lever has to be pulled back in order to for it to even be useful.
They also only kill if the user intends to or is just defending themselves with random shots.
Certainly accidents occur, but what about the items used in sports? Football didn't use to be played with so much padding and equipment. Does that now make the players "assault athletes?"
Do pencils then write spelling mistakes? Does silverware make people fat? Do lighters start fires? No!
"Gun control" is NOT about guns. Its about control! And without guns all the "sheeple" would become lambs for the slaughter ...
