Hey Pappy, don't take advice from that mouse any more.
...what a buncha nut jobs here in AZ, huh? Even after all the shootings, their answer is MORE GUNS!!!
The two most common arguments they use are the "guns don't kill people" and the "only criminals will have guns" memes.
One problem with both is that every gun used by every criminal or law abiding citizen prior to using a gun illegally started out in the hands fo a law abiding citizen. Some "law abiding citizen" failed in some way that allowed a fire arm to get into the hands of someone that then used it to kill or attempt to kill.
Whether it was because they failed to secure the gun, sold the gun or used the gun they did so without regard for the consequences. Many of those people are still considered "law abiding" but that does not make them less culpable.
