Guns don’t kill, people do. I understand the sentiment, but a gun makes it a lot easier and an assault gun with many rounds of ammunition has made too many massacres possible.
Let’s be honest here. There are restrictions on guns now. You can’t go out and buy a machine gun or a rocket propelled grenade for personal use... Read More...

The elventh month, the eleventh day
