So none of you have heard about how strict the gun laws are in Japan?

It’s the sign of a functioning democracy when intelligent people can disagree without name calling. I understand your perspective. I disagree with it, but I understand it. Most people who hold your view were born in urban areas and live in them now as well. Law enforcement is 2 minutes away. You’ve got a hundred people living in your building who can hear if something happens and call 911. Outside of “boys games” of cops and robbers, folks in these environments tend to actually know very little about guns, how they are purchased, and how owners are trained. Someone on TV says you can buy a machine gun that shoots a billion bullets a second completely silently and you believe it, because…why would they lie? I get it. However, you lost me when you made the jump between someone protecting their second amendment rights and thinking it’s “acceptable” to see a class of second-graders gunned down. NO GUN OWNER ANYWHERE finds that acceptable. It’s insulting to even joke about it. There is a problem, and we see different ways of solving it. You think the world should take care of you so you don’t have to. I think people should try to take care of themselves. It doesn’t make you weak, and it doesn’t make me heartless. But if you want a real dialogue to ever happen, comparing gun owners to little boys with their toys isn’t going to get you there.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
