You are aware that Kyle Rittenhouse was the problem that day in Milwaukee aren't you?
There was no threat to life from anyone other than him.

"If you don't want a gun, don't buy one." is not an argument.
The argument you need to rebut is here:
So we are left with the fact that more guns mean 'more guns'; criminals will have more guns, suicidal people will have more access to guns, children will have access to guns, the mentally ill will have more access to guns, drunks will have more access to guns, and individuals in the throes of anger will have more access to guns. Guns provide permanent solutions for temporary problems.
The frontier days are over, guns are no solution for crime, thinking of overthrowing the government is seditious, and guns are no substitute for manhood.
We as a nation and as individuals are better off with as few of them around as possible.
