41. Right...

What good did guns do us on 9/11? There are instances where it's possible someone with a gun might make a difference, if they know how to use one, if they know who to shoot at, if things don't get so out of control that it becomes a random bloodbath. If we aren't dealing with bombs strapped to peoples bodies - people who are all too ready and all too eager to die for their cause.

It might have been different, it might not have been. Our citizens being well armed hasn't really done much to reduce the murder rate in our own Country, not with millions of unregistered weapons, school shootings - and so very many murders over the years. From muggings gone wrong, to drive-by shootings, to trigger-happy cops.

Let's be honest now, if Mr. Trump had been there, armed or not, he would have found the best hiding spot he could, wet his pants, and cried.

What we need isn't more guns. What we need is more common sense, more generosity, more good will among humanity. What the world really needs now is more love, not more bullets.
