I don't lose my rights because of one bad apple, was it you that said you can't take one good example of gun use to make a larger point??
Ok, and that's terrible when that happens, I'm not devoid of sympathy (though it's alot less in cases of stupid).The home owner who messess around and shoots a neighbor of family member. In all kinds of ways, we shoot each other and not criminals.
The statistics are that you are 80 times more likely to prevent crime with a gun than you are to be a victim of crime with a gun.
And that's really a source of desperation that you are looking for the exceptions to justify the rules.... The fact is that both those cases make up a total of at most 0.0002% of incidents with guns.
Like I said before, your irrationally arguing based on emotion, so, it doesn't matter what facts get put up, guns make you scared so you'll push to get rid of them... Even though the overwhelming majority of gun owners (99.999%) are responsible, you want to... No, need to use the 0.0001% to punish the rest.
