Cry Socialism and let slip the dogs of war! 
While the overwhelming majority of the responses on social media and elsewhere were positive, there were also a number of people who expressed doubts.

Three problems:
1: These people start the whole article with an anecdote. That in itself is a fallacy, plus the appeal to emotion involved with telling this lady's tragic story. 

2: There should be nothing stopping people from researching much of anything, that includes the effects of guns in a society. 

3: There can and will be arguments of gun=bad for as long as people want to blame inanimate objects instead of people. Gun violence is a symptom of violence in general, which happens be there guns or no. It will, without guns, be bat violence, knife violence, speeding car violence, or whatever other next convenient tool is around. There will be costs to that, too. The problem isn't "gun violence" because it's wrapped into violence in general, though admittedly guns make it easier to do some types of damage than other types of weapons.

This article is trying to take someone's story, slap it in with some figures, and blame it all on an inanimate object instead of the individual wielding the inanimate object, or the social pressures that drive the behavior.

A little information suppression goes a long way.  It's expensive to counter factual information, interferes with the carefully crafted agenda and generally causes NRA functionaries a big ol' PITA.
Research commissioned by the CDC in 1993 showed that gun owners faced higher risks for both homicides and suicides. But the NRA quickly moved to silence the studies — and make sure no other similar studies would get federal funding. They succeeded.

Lets face it if those 2 useless looking cunts in the picture didn't have a gun they'd get their arse's handed to them on a daily basis.

Low information, low effort thought, low empathy, low awareness, factually-challenged, fantasy-based, and opposed to anything that would change their behavior, not matter the consequences.
Republicans like to say that liberals are stupid, but these five scientific studies prove they're not even smart enough to make this assumption.

The politicians are way behind on this, but corporations are taking notice of the repeated shaming on this issue.  Keeping the pressure on will eventually trickle down to their political minions, as it did with the Indiana religious freedom bill.

And now a high lob to the back court.
More evidence of America's out-of-control gun culture.

Good.
City Attorney Mike Feuer filed misdemeanor charges today against a man who allegedly allowed a 9-year-old boy to take a loaded gun to his elementary school in Tarzana.
