A word of nice, non-violent people is a reality everyone needs to accept as not going to happen. the sooner America, and Western Civ countries realize that we still live with nut jobs, dissenters, psycho's, and violent individuals in our ranks the sooner we will be safer.
Vigilance is eternal if we want a peaceful world. that's my honest opinion after 5 years military and 3 years in the Security business.
Boo guns are still a major issue of the violence.
scscofield, no offense meant but have you ever looked into crime as a whole. I'm no gun advocate, but even I realize that many people die in crimes that don't even use firearms. If anything firearms make crime look good in a sickening way. Plenty of people are killed by knives, swords, axes, kitchen utensils, vehicles, .e.t.c. In short people die because other "people" mean them harm, not because they possess a gun. Guns are just an easier tool, a "fire and forget" weapon that dehumanizes killing in my honest opinion.
It's much harder to look another living being in the face and then stab them through the heart. Just saying, guns are not the reason, if anything we only have ourselves to blame as a society.
