19. One firearm death is one too many.....

 

We can hem and haw over what firearm numbers we are talking about to make our points.
Accidental? Suicide? Homicide only? Crime only? Total deaths?

The fact is, that one firearm death of any kind is one too many.
No one in our system today, is culpable for the safety of the individual with the firearm or protects the innocent who do not have a firearm.

The majority of Americans DO want gun control - based on polling data.

http://www.politifact.com/punditfact/statements/2016/jan/05/laura-ingraham/laura-ingraham-say-claim-90-support-gun-background/

This highlights an odd discrepancy: While people overwhelmingly support specific gun policy ideas, like universal background checks and banning suspected terrorists from buying guns, the support is not as robust when it comes to actually expanding gun control.


"People don't seem to like the idea of ‘gun control,’
but they still want the government to do more to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill,"
said Adam Winkler, a law professor at the University of California Los Angeles and author of Gunfight: The Battle over the Right to Bear Arms in America.


I may try entering into the wolves liar, when I have some time to discuss gun control at length.
Mental Health diagnosis definitely has its challenges with HIPPA

I am glad you support fire arm safety and enjoy your guns.
No one wants to take away anyone's guns.
However we need to monitor the sale of the guns and prevent firearm deaths, if possible.

I also go out and support gun control events and sign every petition that is sent to me.
Lives spared from needless gun violence should be everyone's goal.

So instead of pointing out our differences, how can we move to a consensus to protect the 2nd and the rest of Americans?
That is the challenge.
Its not to bend the will of the opposition to one side of the issue.

Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.
