Gun Culture

“Guns don’t kill people; people kill people.” We’ve all heard it, the age old excuse for the senseless violence that riddles our culture. It’s true. Guns don’t kill people, but they help psychopaths do an extra special good job of killing as many people as possible. Right, next excuse “Guns help protect the people from a government were it ever to turn on it’s people.” Is it just me, or does this seem like the raving of a paranoid madman? “LETS ALL ARM OURSELVES TO THE TEETH! THE MACHINES WILL RISE!” Does it make sense? No. Does it have to for people to accept it? Pfft, no. In the wake of the Newtown Conneticut tragedy, some even went so far to say that the teachers should have been armed. It’s obviously the only option. Arm the kids while you’re at it. Ooh *raises hand* maybe don’t give the gun to the shooter in the first place. Now no one has a gun, and no one gets shot. Each year 32000 people die in the U.S. due to gun violence. It’s time for people to wake up, and to get the NRA out of congress and out of our culture.
