This is how many American's minds work.

Good luck making sensible changes to keep guns out of the hands of people who are unbalanced.

By the way half of America is unbalanced......

Not going to be easy.

5. Best numbers we have is 34% of households have guns.

Most recent PPP poll says only 14% of gun owners oppose UBC. 14% of 34%= about .05% of gun owners are running the show.

So, yeah, gunz gunz gunz for a very few who need penis extensions.

26. How would an AWB, that only banned certain cosmetics, have been effective?

How would a mag limit been effective when there are already millions upon millions of mags already in circulation.

Even Harry Reid knew it was a no go and told her so, but she just had to insist on it so, down the tubes went UBC's.

7. Guns must cause an insanity that clouds logic and humanity when the gun is insulted.

Guns cause insanity!
It may be a slow moving insanity that usually fails to erupt before the natural end of ones life.
But, guns do cause an insanity that clouds logic and humanity when the gun is insulted.

In its simplest form, this insanity caused by the attraction to guns can be seen in those who, examining the status-quo of America's gun problem, consider this slaughter to be acceptable and preferable to their loosing their grip on their toys.

Causal thinking seems to jam.
Example, how often do we hear the gunners' claims that people who do not know a magazine* from a magazine* should shut up about the NRATERRORISTs in our midst.

Some of these good guys with guns tell USA (USA is us), apparently in all seriousness) that they will go down, guns blazing, defending their insane armories of 2nd amendment ammunition, before they will allow a rational, civilized society to choose self defense over fetishistic disorder.

Absolutely NO solutions are offered other than more guns or obfuscations.

One and ONLY ONE causative factor is absolutely constant in all gun violence. Insane people do insane things. Guns cause insanity by giving defective human beings the power to pretend that they are in control.

The belief that conflict resolution by bullet is better than disarming this insanity IS a moral failure.
Defending guns, blaming victims, taking the gun to be the cure against the gun are examples of ethical insanity.

*A good magazine contains information and entertainment.
*A bad magazine contains bullets.
*Perhaps those who can't recognize a heart unless it is a target, should shut up in polite society.
*Certainly guns do not seem to be socially polite tools; designed solely for killing or practicing to kill or threatening to kill.

37. From childhood to senior citizens, Americans are bombarded with video entertainment that

features guns and the controlling tool in most confrontations. It's easy to see that whoever has the "drop" ,(gun pointed at someone),is ,at that point, in charge of the conflict. Other factors such as size, strength, and intelligence are not the deciding part of the conflict, only the guns and where they are pointed.

Now, for a small price, any freak, creep, sicko, crazy person can fantasize about their power over others. For the price of a cheap pistol, the frailest of people are able to defeat the strongest and most capable of people by possessing a firearm and the willingness to use it regardless of ethics and punishment.

My theory is that people should not be provided throughout their lives with so much gun related entertainment. Accomplishing that would not be easy. However, parents could learn to minimize children's exposure and adults could be taught that it is dangerous to focus on gun related entertainment.

The desire of power is a natural animal instinct and not necessarily a bad one. But, the advent of modern killing weapons is not part of our natural physical evolution. The risks of high tech weaponry to the human race is right at the top of the developments that must be regulated. Nothing new here, but the level of risk continues to rise.

gun cult entertainment.

Humans are developing killing weapons are a far greater rate than their ability to control them. That obviously can't be allowed to continue.
