The NRA doesn't want to harm kids;
they're mostly just frightened people who think they need guns to defend themselves.
Untrue. They merely choose to be prepared.
Although why anyone would think they needed an assault weapon to do that is beyond me... They must consider themselves very bad shots indeed!
Democrats lie and refer to ordinary guns as assault weapons, but that doesn't mean that people who use guns think that they are bad shots.
I doubt that you will find many people who advocate using an actual
assault weapon for self defense.
If we want to get a handle on the crazy over-arming of America, we must stop vilifying each other and seek ways to understand and cooperate with each other.
America is not overarmed, so there is nothing to get a handle on.
Less vilification would be nice.
Now that we'll finally have a president who knows how to team-build, respect other opinions, and seek consensus--rather than seeking to antagonize and alienate as many people as possible--we'll have a much better chance of making progress in that direction, and many others. Cheers!
That is not even remotely the sort of president that has just been elected.
And even if he had been such a person, after the way the Democrats treated Mr. Trump for the past four years, the Republicans are in no mood to make nice.
