As I read the comments on the CNN website regarding this recent shooting in Illinois, I despair at the lack of perspective shown by the "gun grabbers." I don't know what gives them the impression that anything good can come out of disarming the people. We have had an armed citizenry since this country was founded, and the increased violence in it is not a function of gun ownership, but rather, the decline of our civilization.
I'm also annoyed at their bizarre speculation that if GG's were armed when one of these shootings went down, the crossfire would be even more deadly. They make silly arguments such as "while we're at it, let's go ahead and allow mortars in our yards." We live among a thoroughly brainwashed society, and too many people just can't draw logical conclusions from what they observe. They're more concerned about being perceived as nice people or fitting in with their liberal friends. They not only choose to be victims, but want to take away everyone else's choice while they're at it.
