Guns Don't Kill People, People Kill People

MY GUN - an inert piece of wood and steel craftsmanship.

Today I swung my front door wide open and placed my Remington 12ga
semi-auto shotgun right in the doorway. I left 9 shells beside it,
then left it alone and went about my business. While I was gone, the
mailman delivered my mail, the neighbor boy across the street mowed
the yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars
stopped at the stop sign near the front of my house. After about an
hour, I checked on the gun. It was still sitting there, right where I
left it. It hadn't moved itself. It certainly hadn't killed anyone,
even with the numerous opportunities it had presented to do so. In
fact, it hadn't even loaded itself.

Well you can imagine my surprise, with all the hype by the Left and
the Media about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people.
Either the media is wrong, or I'm in possession of the laziest gun in
the world.
The United States is third in Murders throughout the World. But if
you take out just four cities: Chicago, Detroit, Washington, DC and
New Orleans, the United States is fourth from the bottom, in the
entire world, for Murders! These four Cities also have the toughest
Gun Control Laws in the U. S. All four of these cities have long been
controlled by Democrats. It would be absurd to draw any conclusions
from this data - right?

Well, I'm off to check on my spoons. I hear they're making people fat.

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

"Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him; better take a closer look at the American Indian." - Henry Ford

Corruptissima re publica plurimae leges; When the Republic is at its most corrupt the laws are most numerous. - Publius Cornelius Tacitus

As long as you do not claim guns "save lives", I'm ok with the concept that guns don't kill people.

Please pass that along to Israel. Oh wait, if they adopted that thinking, there won't be an Israel.

The silent majority will be silent no more.

A gun is an inanimate object, a tool. Right? My point supports the OP in that he's apparently putting it out there a gun is an inanimate object. Therefore, it cannot kill someone. What makes that any different than my posit that a gun, as an inanimate object, cannot save a life either?

So all self defense shootings, law enforcement shootings and military shootings are just murder or attempted murder to you? Maybe that is why you don't write law.

I have many guns that are only guilty of shooting paper, steel targets, tin cans, etc. Such scary killing machines.

So guns do shoot, eh? And guns save lives, eh? If that is, in fact, real truth, then guns also take lives. Plain and simple.

If guns don't take lives, then they don't save lives. Plain and simple.

There's a person whose hand is on the trigger. Your guns don't shoot paper, steel targets, tin cans, etc. You shoot those guns at those targets.

Simple logic.
