Yeah ... that's one of the inane arguments the pro gun lobby uses ... or what about cars killing all those people. Knifes do a lot less damage than a machine gun, they are not meant to kill people in normal use ... excepting switch blades maybe and they're usually illegal already, strangely more so than MR-15s which are meant to kill people, or a herd of wild boars a lot of people seem to be afraid of for some reason?
yep...........evidently we are on opposite sides of the issue. Criminals laugh at gun laws, so your answer is remove guns from the hands of honest law abiding citizens. Nazi Germany had the same idea, as do the global elitists. Glad to see there are now more people recognizing our constitutional rights and the reasoning behind teaching our youth a proper respect towards firearms.
Not sure we're totally opposite on this issue.
Before the arms industry flooded our streets with guns we didn't have crazies and kids running around shooting up the neighborhood. I'm really not into rehashing stale arguments and just rest my case on the well-regulated militia part.
didnt take long to apply Godwin's Law, did it ...
Can rest with such reply.
When our youth had better sense, they were not yet barraged with mass media hype.
If we can't sleep, neither can you!

A toddler in St. Louis, Missouri has died after accidentally (so to speak) shooting himself in the head.
in accidents involving unsecured firearms are a common in the U.S. In June, an eight-year-old Florida boy fatally shot his infant sister with a gun belonging to his father. In Detroit, a five-year-old boy playing with a gun fatally shot himself in the face in August ...

Very sad for the victims, very. I hope when they catch the murderer, they don't let him out on bond, like they have been doing all over our country. Or like the New Orleans Mayor, that visits these thugs in jail, but totally ignores the victims and their families.
Had it been required to have a permit, that murderer wouldn't have gotten one. That's a no brainer. Criminals don't care about laws. You can take every single gun away from every single law abiding citizen, and crime would escalate. Criminals would not give up their guns, but they would have free range if law abiding citizens were unable to defend themselves. Nothing to stop the criminals.
Then we get this:
The gun manufacturers dumped 11 million guns on us in 2020. There are some 400 million firearms in the US.
More Americans died of gun-related injuries in 2020 than in any other year on record,
Suicides account for the highest number of gun-related deaths by state in the United States of America. Most suicides are done with firearms of some type that were also the registered and licensed owners of the weapons.
Interestingly, the five states with the lowest gun death rates, in deaths per 100,000, are:
