Can you seriously tell me that a little extra waiting or a little extra paperwork is too much to ask? Seriously? Kids are being killed.
Sure, you’re a responsible gun owner. But can you vouch for everyone? Not even just those buying guns but owning them?
Did you know that, on average, one child under the age of 12 dies in the United States every week from gun accidents? Do you know why most of those happen? Because the parents were careless with the guns they own. Second amendment doesn’t mean spit if you’re flat-out stupid about gun safety. Kids are being killed.
I don’t care what types of guns you own. I don’t care how many you own. Keep ’em. Buy more. Just don’t leave them out on the table when you go to work.
“Guns don’t kill people”?? Get out of here with that, too. I’ve been there, posted that. Guns fire, people die. And beyond that, kids are being killed.
I’m not asking about your political background. I could care less about what cards you carry in your wallet. I’m talking about your kids. Or your next door neighbor’s kids. Or, really, does it matter whose kids? Kids are being killed.
What does it take for people to stop worrying about being inconvenienced? How many dead will it take to overcome ridiculous paranoia that large amounts of government types will be “coming for your guns”?
Have you never heard the term “greater good”. It involves a magic concept called “sacrifice”. Can you not sacrifice some of your campaign funds, politicians? Are you not willing to put up with some more regulations, Mr. and Mrs. gun buyer?
Kids are being killed. For crying out loud, DO something!
