You cannot say, as the NRA does, that a gun is an inanimate object and does no harm and that all the blame for the daily mass gun homicides in America is solely the responsibility of deranged people. This the mantra of the NRA. It is America’s biggest lie.
Gun homicide is an equal partnership between human and gun. One without the other can not commit murder with a gun. There would still be homicides in America if the gun was completely removed from society and the 2nd Amendment repealed from the constitution. But there would be a much lower kill rate; very much lower. So tighter regulation of guns would save lives. It is the first duty of government to protect citizens.
That alone is why at least assault rifles need to be eliminated and removed from private ownership across the US and Nevada needs to start regulating guns to a sensible level without upsetting too many die-hard gun fans.
Sorry for interfering and commenting on the US constitution. I know that Americans hate Europeans interfering in this way but in the name of the 59 dead and 500 injured yesterday in Las Vegas, I feel compelled to get it off my chest.
Now back to cats…..
