Can we please stop pretending it's about constitutional rights? I have a right to not get shot while attending a movie or going to school.
Can we please stop pretending that good guys with guns stop bad guys with guns? They do, but it's either after the bad guy has killed a room full of people, or the good guy shoots the wrong person.
Can we please stop pretending that "guns don't kill people, people kill people"? People kill people WITH GUNS. The only reason they choose a gun is that it's more efficient than a baseball bat or a knife, otherwise we'd have news reports about mass clubbings.
Can we please stop pretending it's about mental health? One in four people in this country have some form of mental illness, and they don't walk around killing people.
THE PROBLEM IS THE GODSDAMNED GUNS, YOU FUCKING MORONS! You want a gun, fine. Fill out 800 pages in triplicate, consent to a background check so invasive that you can skip your colonoscopy, and carry death and injury insurance on them like a responsible fucking adult.
STOP PRETENDING THAT THE PROBLEM ISN'T THE FUCKING GUNS! You don't need 30 rounds of high-caliber semi-automatic death to defend your home. If you do, you need to call the police and/or the army anyway, because you're hopelessly outmatched. You also don't need 30 rounds of high-caliber semi-automatic death to hunt. Really, the deer aren't returning fire, I promise. If they are, again, you need to call the police and/or army.
