In response to comparison of “If Guns Kill people then…” I find it very interesting that..
– In order to fly a plane.. you have to take all these classes and record all these flight hours, pass a written and flight test… before you can get your license to fly.
– In order to drive… you have to also pass a written and driving test…. before you can get your license.
– In order to practice medicine to SAVE lives… you must have all this educational background… participate in an internship before you can get a license to practice medicine. The same is basically true for many other major professions…
– Some law enforcement positions require a psych evaluation, and all sorts of formal training before you can be an officer of the law
But in order to own and operate a gun as regular joe citizen, except in the state of Texas believe it or not, all you gotta do is.. apply for the license, pass a background check to own a gun and walk into Walmart and buy a firearm.
Something whose SPECIFIC DESIGN AND PURPOSE… was to cause harm or kill.
It’s a big enough of a travesty that ANYone feels like they should wield that much power… but when you factor in the purpose of a firearm… its way way too easy to obtain one.
