Nra or not, guns are not safe. Living in a city or a semi urban area, you will never need guns. If we are afraid of other people and feel the need to carry guns, we cannot justify or explain this behaviour with our “rights”. This fear is induced by inequality produced by capitalist system. When one is poor and other is rich, there will never be justice. Now this applies to every macro and micro scale. We must own guns to defend our families, our homes, our countries? Against whom? The ones we oppressed.
This system is not sustainable in my opinion. More guns will not solve anything and we see how one asshole could commit such a heinous crime when guns are readily available to his disposal. I’m not gonna suggest that people will not commit crimes in the absence of guns but at least we can stop terrorists like this asshole who murdered 50 innocent people. It is not enough to ban semi-automatic rifles tho. All gun sales to civilians must be banned immediately and if possible a recall should be issued on every firearm.
Never gonna happen until we elect better people, not better politicians.
