TOXIC WASTE: Gun control isn’t about taking guns away, it’s about not giving American lives away
The two excepts below from the “article” is part of the reason why there is this huge divide between freedom and whatever gun control advocates believe. I don’t know which one is more annoying, being that we can only “unite” around some B.S. point of view that some sheltered reporter/writer has or that the second amendment is seen as an impediment rather than a right to guarantee freedom.
One last thing, why are we the ones who need to change the way we “think” about guns rather than the people who know nothing about guns actually learning about guns? Just a thought…
In 48 states, gun ownership successfully predicted whether a household was going to vote for Trump or for Hillary. Gun ownership predicted voting in the 2017 presidential election better than any other dividing quality. It beat out race, marital status, religious affiliation, and even whether you lived in a rural or urban area. There are fewer issues that are more divisive in American politics, but in light of recent events, it’s time for people to unite and form policies that will save lives, not gun manufacturers.
I am by no means saying get rid of guns entirely. For one, I couldn’t. There’s a constitutional amendment and a 241-year precedence against me on that one, let alone the gun supporters. But I am saying we need to change the way we think about guns, and especially the way we regulate them.
