Well, of course America’s obsession with guns is unhealthy. Even I own a few guns, but I’m definitely not obsessed with them. People who build their lives around guns truly are nuts.

I can understand the hunting with them thing or collecting them, or having them for home protection, but these clowns who think its cool to strap one on and walk into a bar are far off the reservation.

I saw in the news the other day where the cops killed the wrong man because he had a gun in his hand. He was not the shooter, but how were the cops to know coming on to a shooting scene which guy with a gun is the shooter? And there in lies the problem with be being armed in public, thinking one might be able to stop a mass murder. It more than likely will just make it harder for authorities to get to the real killer.
