Our guns are killing, not protecting, us – “Not a single European citizen with whom I discussed current events – college students, hotel clerks, bus drivers, university professors and people in pubs – demonstrated the slightest bit of annoyance at being denied the “freedom” of instantaneous access to high-powered firearms. Rather, to a person, they expressed wonder at our enslavement to and acquiescence of a violent gun culture that claims tens of thousands of innocent lives each year.” You probably didn’t even realize that you’re enslaved, did you?
Why are anti-gunners so sexist? Here’s An Idea: Only Women Should Have Guns – “James Garbarino, a psychologist from Loyola University who has extensively researched human development and violence, has even said that female mass killers are “so rare it hasn’t been studied.” This leaves no argument—women are extremely less likely to kill someone with their guns. It’s difficult to even find data about women killing people with guns in cases that aren’t in self-defense. In that sense, I agree with Chris Cox. More women should have guns. And since it’s abundantly clear that they’ll commit less violence than men and be vulnerable to violence committed by men, let’s take all the guns away from men and give them to women.”

It’s for a gun. ‘Accessible only by the licensed-to-carry holder,’ Reynolds said. Starting Aug. 1, students and staff with concealed handgun licenses will be able to take their guns into school buildings and classrooms at public universities.” OK, but making people handle their guns more often is inherently more dangerous. Just saying.
‘I’m Petrified For My Children’: Will Racism And Guns Lead To America’s Ruin? – “Part of the heartbreak of watching the nightmare up the highway from me in Dallas was seeing, like a story’s dramatic conclusion, several of America’s greatest inherent conflicts coming together in one moment: fatally disastrous policing; our unresolved racial legacy dating back to the original sin of slavery and the century of socio-economic disenfranchisement that followed it; our love of guns and our reoccurring shame of the mass murders made possible by them.”
