My father told me, earlier, that if others hadn't followed the law, and had been carrying guns, then this latest shooting wouldn't have been so bad. If the guy couldn't have gotten hold of a gun, it wouldn't have happened at all. I do not understand the obsession with owning as many guns as possible.
This makes sense, I mean you can't really argue with this, can you? If you're a woman buying a gun for protection against a man who means you harm, I suppose just hide out for 48 hours in a strange town until you can get a gun, while you're there anyway.
