Sure we do, But not too many people use a Porsche to do the school run.
From what I've seen and read in some of your latest attempts at an answer, you seem to go out of your way to be obnoxious, and if you don't understand that just perhaps I should simplify it . And say your just looking for an argument for the sake of it.. If your an example of the american population, It's no wonder your country's going down the crapper.
Personally, I'm tired of people who live outside, thinking that what they read and see on the news is correct. I wouldn't think of telling someone from another place about where they live, believing that I know. The closest I can come to knowing is from going somewhere, talking with people who have lived there or lastly, hearing about it from people who traveled there but it's still not the same as living there.
I can understand why people from other countries ask "Why the hell would I want to go there?", if they only read or watch the news reports about the US. If I could go back in time and prevent whatever caused people to go off the rails, I would. I would like an end to the gunfire I hear on a regular basis that occurs only blocks away from my house but that's not the only reason MKE is unsafe and other cities have the same problems.
Is it not OK to have a difference of opinion? I use facts and experience to form my opinions, but it seems that some copy/paste links to back up their opinions.
I don't disagree that the US has too many guns, that too many gun owners are far too gung ho about them and the number of people who use/store them unsafely is insanely high. I have also posted that I think law enforcement should be able to find a way to lock down whole blocks and prevent people leaving the places where they live, so illegal guns can be taken, but again, the lawyers would have a field day. As I have also written, the US has a lot of idiots who just won't do what they should WRT storage and that's a large reason many guns fall into the hands of criminals. It's easy to find the data and that's what I have used before making these comments and there's no good reason for these problems to occur.
However, I disagree that all guns should be taken from all gun owners. The vast majority cause no problems with them and gun control, as proposed by some, would penalize people who have done nothing wrong but when/if they do, they need to pay the price. One argument that has been made against legal concealed and open carry is that it would return us to the Wild West days where gunfights were common. Well, 'legal' has nothing to do with it and here we are......
I'm very disappointed in the people who just can't or won't stop doing the crap that's in the news on a daily basis. They could make better choices, but they don't. It seems that they only think about how they can get a gun, drugs, booze, steal a car, rob someone or get in a fight with someone.
Sorry if you think I'm being obnoxious, I just want people to be better but there's damned little in the American conversation about what's happening that places responsibility for this on the shoulders of the people who are causing the problems- it's always someone else's fault.
