Angry thoughts about guns

Guns don’t kill people – people kill people.

If there’s any more tired and trite statement than that, I don’t know what it is.

Certainly, if a person is determined to kill, they will do it no matter what weapon they may have at hand. But can’t gun activists understand that a gun makes it a heck of a lot easier for that person to kill many people at one time, very efficiently and with great ease?

Imagine Tucson, AZ yesterday if there had been no gun in the story. How many people would have been killed or injured by some other weapon before the killer was subdued?

I unequivocally hate guns, and I hate equally the gun “laws” that make it possible for unbalanced people to easily obtain these weapons of mass destruction.

And I really don’t care if you disagree with me.

Thoughts, prayers and tears for the victims and families of yesterday’s tragedy.
