Guns don’t kill people. People kill people. I’m sick of hearing guns don’t kill people, people kill people. The logic behind that is so flawed. And the results of people who say it and/or believe it are more and more people dying. People die because people use guns to kill people!
Take a look at the adjacent picture. It’s soldier with an assault weapon. Guess what? He has that weapon for one reason only. Because it kills people. Furthermore, it kills people with a much lower likelihood that the soldier will be injured or killed compared to if he only had a single-shot rifle. Or a handgun with six bullets. Or a knife, with no bullets.
So don’t even go there that guns don’t kill people. These guns were made to kill people. Period.
And people kill lots of people. Especially here in America. Thanks to the gun culture in America, where we have an alleged constitutional right to have guns made for war, Americans can kill lots of Americans with assault weapons in a very short time. Here in America. Supposedly the greatest country in the world.
But what are we really great at? Being the number one country in the world for having more Americans killed by other Americans than any other country’s citizens kill their own citizens? Is that what “American exceptionalism” is about?
Guns don’t kill people. People kill people. That’s a lie!
I published this one over on God versus religion. But I want to include it here as well. I’m so disgusted with my fellow Christians, at least they call themselves Christians, for insisting on their constitutional right to have mass murder weapons that are used to kill children and other innocent people.
I need to put it out there that I don’t believe for one second that this kind og thinking comes from Jesus. Owning guns is not – I repeat not – a sacred right.
