77. People are amused with cars.
Yet they kill far more people every day than guns do. Do you give them the same BS as you're giving me right now? I think not.

A gun isn't designed to kill. It's designed to send a projectile (or several in the case of a shotgun) down a length of tube at high velocity to strike a target. That target can be anything from a paper target to a clay pigeon to a person, depending on where the SHOOTER decides to aim it.

If you were a rational person, you'd be willing to admit this. You'd also be willing to admit that the vast majority of gun owners are law abiding people who would never aim their gun at another person unless it was in self defense, and that they have NEVER murdered any one. You'd also admit that a guns purpose at any given time is decided by the person wielding it, not by the gun itself.

But no, you are not rational. You hate guns. You may even hate the people who don't agree with you. You've humanized them and given them character traits. Yet in all of this you claim it is I who am obsessed with them.

I'm thankful the majority of Americans are far more rational than you are. Your obsession with hating guns has marginalized you in the eyes of any rational thinking person.
