The point of the original post is many black people oppose gun laws and would agree with stiffer gun control laws under the pretense it would reduce crime in their neighborhood. However, the fact remains that prior to you just agreeing with one side or the other, you should do some fact checking and soul searching.
I do not agree with having military style weaponry for the everyday citizen. During my training I was taught that your basic hand gun is to basically create holes and cause the person to bleed out. However the assualt rifles that are made for combat are created to liquify the insides of the person. The velocity of the gun and the way the bullets are created are so strong they move at sonic speed...thus destroying organs at the molecular level....I sat there with my eyes bugged out when I heard that...
Yes. And yes again. Thats crazy!
And yes to what Sexi said, the laws do need to be more stringent for those that misuse guns.
But I wonder what there is to be done when people, like the nut who killed those kids, has every intent on killing themselves. As the above article points out, do we just accept it as the cost we pay for having the right to bear arms?
I wonder what the constitutional writers would say about this today.
