All gun owners are killers!, All conservatives are racist! The NRA is a terrorist organization! True statements? No.
By using that same logic, all blacks are gang bangers, all Hispanics are drug dealers, and all Muslims are terrorists.
We all know that every single statement listed is false. Let's be realistic. We are told by our politicians and community leaders, that we can't judge entire groups by the actions of a few deranged individuals. We all agree on that.
With that said, why do most anti-gun groups continually lump gun owners and NRA members in to one big group of extremists. Where is the logic? There are well over 250 million guns in this country, but the death rate by guns is around 33,000 per year. As tragic as all of these deaths are, it's nowhere near epidemic.
The facts prove that cancer, smoking, obesity, and even medical errors each cause more deaths than guns annually. Not to mention heart disease and automotive accidents, which are higher yet.
It seems to me that all the anti gun rhetoric is more unsubstantiated fear and misinformation than anything based on facts. School shootings are, and should be addressed, by all means. why fear an armed protective force for our children? Shouldn't they be afforded the same protection as every one of our politicians, or for that matter, "celebrities"? Let's at least start there for now, at least until we can determine the real underlying cause for so many kids killing fellow students. Blaming the tool used instead of the real problem is only allowing the killing to continue.
Think about it.
