Can we all agree that guns are a tool for killing? That’s good mutual ground to stand on when discussing run rights. Be it hunting, criminal intent, an unwitting child, an angry teen, a psycho that believes they’re a super-villain, guns are the number one way to make something die. So it stands to reason that more guns and easier access would be taking a stop back (we’re trying to get rid of nukes, not give countries more of them, it’s the same logic), when all we want is to live freely without fear of being shot or killed. So how do we solve this problem? Tax the shit out of guns and ammo, just like cigarettes and booze. It’s important to push high taxes on things that kill people because it costs our medical system a fortune in preventable deaths and illness, and the money’s got to come from somewhere. Eventually people will stop because they just can’t afford it anymore. You can’t make it illegal, Americans would go ape-ship if they couldn’t carry a gun–they’d think the Illuminati were starting their world takeover. So just make it extremely hard to access. Guns don’t need to be sold at every single retail shop, it’s not a cup of coffee, it’s a weapon. It should go without saying, but a psych-evaluation, and gun-safety classes should be mandatory too.
