    you haven't proffered any rational solutions. I tire of "solutions" that are designed to harass conservatives and pretend to stop criminals

    No, that's not true at all. You might leave your gun unlocked and out when you run to the store and some kid could break in and end up shooting himself with it. You might end up shooting a neighbor kid who is sneaking into your yard to get a ball he kicked over the fence. You might be shooting targets and a stray bullet goes into somebody's house. You might get drunk one night and end up shooting a dog in your confusion. If you live in a city, you might fire the gun in totally legitimate self defense and the bullet might smash through a neighbor's bedroom window and kill them in their sleep. You might pull a gun out when a burglar enters your house and end up turning a burglary into a shootout that could create all kinds of danger for the people around you. You could even flip out one day and start killing people.

    Or, of course, the opposite could happen. You could save a neighbor's life by warding somebody off who was going to do them harm. You could use your gun to scare a bear away that otherwise would have hurt a kid. Etc.

    There are a million ways you having a gun could dramatically affect the lives of your neighbors. Some positive, some negative. The balance between the positive and negative varies dramatically depending on what kind of person you are, your attitude towards guns, how densely populated the area is, etc. No doubt, the gun is more likely to affect you than your neighbor, but it affect's your neighbor to an extent as well, so to me, that meets the criteria for something society has a legitimate say in.

    Oh, your silly scenarios are just crap. Seriously. I know what kind of person I am, I know where I live, and I know how to handle responsibility.

    Wrong again.

    I can see why the Onion article was so over your head.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I don't really get what you're arguing. What would you knowing yourself have to do with any of this? Did you understand my post? Do you have a response to the argument?

    You are such a victim.
    You must struggle every day with the imagined persecution.

    Again, if you can't see the problem, solutions are pointless to present.

    Mass shootings involve psychos, victims and guns. We can control one of three easily, and two of three with effort.

    Clearly, we disagree on the meaning of the word "you."

    no one else seems to find your onion citation to have any merit. it was silly because it whined about a problem and had no solutions. its point was to try to demonize gun ownership without having the courage to call for gun bans that it wants
