Surely if that was their aim, they'd just do it right off the bat. No need to piddle around. I think the US knows very well just how poorly their attempts at prohibition have been (drugs and booze? c'mon, there are more guns in the US than drugs, I'd think).
Why do so many Americans not trust the government and yet state it's the best place on the planet to live?
There's got to be SOME association there, one would think that feeling you live in the best nation would go hand in hand with feeling you had the best government too.
It seems that most people want to stop irresponsible use of guns, especially those who are properly trained and practice for sport. The bad ones always make it worse for the good ones. But those same people fear that the government will strip them of their rights. They want more control but don't want more control?!
Is it that people feel the PEOPLE committing crimes need to be corrected and not the laws themselves?
How can that possibly work? If we could determine people's mental weaknesses that closely, there would be no crime and no plea of insanity.
I just don't get it. It seems the focus is that if each side argues about ridiculous fallacies, then nothing gets done and everyone carries on as usual, except the problem continues to escalate.
For a nation full of forward thinking people, how do those, who are stuck in the dark ages and simply won't accept that change is needed, have such a voice?
Seriously, I just don't see how its even an issue of debate, especially one that constantly results in a stalemate. I might say Americans are gullible consumers or that they can be lead like sheep but seriously, this can't just be a matter of people's blind ignorance, or is it?
