On average, Democrats use guns for shooting the innocent. We call that crime.
On average, Republicans use guns for sporting purposes and self-defense. . . .
So it seems to me that gun control can’t be solved because Democrats are using guns to kill each other – and want it to stop – whereas Republicans are using guns to defend against Democrats. . . . Democrats are unlikely to talk Republicans out of gun ownership because it comes off as “Put down your gun so I can shoot you.”
The NRA gets a bad rap in some circles but you never hear of an NRA member going out and shooting random people.
Meanwhile, Democratic constituencies are shooting each other like the Olympic Games of murder, which for some reason leads their representatives in Congress to insist that Republicans should have to give up on gun ownership.
