Regardless of statistics of gun and knife violence, suicide and homicide rates across the biggest cities and most densely populated countries....there remains one unchangeable truth. If someone out there wants to kill someone, you can be damn sure they'll find a way to do it. No matter how many bans or restrictions any government puts into place or on what...they cannot legislate or put on a ban on human nature. We know that there are bad people out there, regardless of race, age, gender, ANYTHING. We all share a common human nature. This is not to say there should be no law. But it IS to say that pointless squabbling over how someone is killed is, in no uncertain terms, is missing the mark. There will always be people killing one another, there has been throughout all history, barring all morals and codes, this is the way it is. But when one suggests that the evil of these bans and indeed, the evil of gun violence, is somehow a power struggle, or a derivative of identity politics, is utterly sickening. The evil of these events and laws is the lack of understanding of human value. Being a human, sharing human value, being a participating member of the human race, is the most sacred of treasures. When people try to suggest that the evil of these laws and debates and such is no more than constitutional right or advertence of the evils of murder, it is wholly unAmerican. Where is it that you think the founding fathers and writers of the constitution found the inspiration for such laws and statutes? They made these laws to begin with because they understood that the value of life came at a cost. The price to practice and understand these values was the result of a hard-fought war, in which American and British blood was much spilled until at last, the first Americans won the right to protect, by gunpoint, their kin and country.
