I'm thiiiiis close to flipping my shit on facebook, because I swear if i see another post about how guns don't kill people or the mentally disturbed will find a way to kill with or without guns I'm going to loose it or something of that ilk. This isn't even a big red button issue for me. For the most part I don't give a shit about whether or not people own guns. I tend to think that maybe they should be better regulated, but I'm hardly adamant about it. But my god, from the posts on my friends list you'd think people were one step away from walking into these people's houses and prying the guns from their hands. It's a deflection from the issue and it's driving me insane. For fuck's sake people, no one wants to take away your guns, they want to regulate gun ownership. A gun is a dangerous tool for crying out loud what's so wrong with requiring a license to own one, a license you have to renew every five years or so. Because if you can't see that this country has a fucking problem with guns then you've got your head in the sand and are ignoring very real statistics.
