I've had multiple AR15's M1a, M1 Garands and Glocks over the past 25+ years and none of them have ever made me do anything illegal. I just don't own them, I use them, too. My club team was in the top third of civilian and military teams in the Infantry Trophy Match at Camp Perry 20+ years ago. Yet, even though I could hit a man size silhouette at 500yds at least 15 times in 50 seconds without a scope, I've never had the urge to do a drive-by, be a sniper, rob or shoot anyone, etc. I grew up as a minority in the city of Detroit, too, with an alcoholic father. I had all kinds of excuses...but I've never used excuses, just worked hard for what I wanted and needed.casinterest wrote:
Gun violence is increasing over the last 4 years as more and more of the suicide pact GOP keep trying to create a more dangerous world.
If a violent crime is being committed it is because the environment is present for it to be committed. you try to avoid such environments. Limiting guns in public is a good way to keep violent weapons away from people with the capacity to commit violent crimes. I don't have an uneducated phobia against all guns. I am very aware of their use. I do have a phobia against people that think that more people with guns will work out better. it will not.
Gun violence and murder are up a lot over the last year and it’s not be committed by the people you’re worried about.
Problem being, you’re a responsible person taking charge of your life and being responsible for the outcomes. Some here there that’s old fashioned and people should be victims.
