I don't carry a weapon and would never carry one. What is wrong with all these machos who think they cannot leave the house without it ? Guns kill.
No, Amanda, guns do not kill. I've kept a Colt revolver in the nightstand drawer for almost 20 years and it hasn't killed one person, as far as I know. I take it out of that drawer once a year; take it to the range; put about 24 shots through it to confirm it's still functional (it's going on 50 yrs old, soon); clean it; oil it; and then it goes back into the drawer.
People kill, Amanda. Yes, they use guns but also they use shovels, knives, poison, automobiles, blunt instruments, you-name-it.
You get the picture now, don't you, Amanda? Guns do NOT kill, Amanda, people kill.
Your comment, "Guns kill." shows your limited thinking on the issue, if not your ignorance.
