8. People whom live in such hyper-exaggerated fear of their surroundings

need to have their perceptions challenged once in a while. This is the USA, not Iraq, Somalia, or some war-torn third-world country. We should be so lucky to live in a relatively peaceful, stable country. Yet the NRA puts out this vision of our country as a lawless anarchy with roving gangs and drug dealers threatening a cowed law abiding populace and lawmakers respond to that in several states by continuing to add on to the already quite long list (in some places) that they want to see guns allowed, seemingly to the point that there are virtually no restrictions and guns are allowed everywhere. I mean, what's the logic of allowing people to carry guns in churches? Daycares? I think that advocating for background checks, licensure, etc. are tough sells for the public but I don't want to see us get to the point where a bunch of people show up anywhere and everywhere with guns. I'd also like to ask, when *would* be a good time to address the issue of gun violence in our society? How long do we need to keep our (gun)powder dry?
