horsefeathering godammit, that is heartbreaking

this is why i told my wife we wouldn't get a gun for home protection. id rather pay for an alarm and take the risk that i have to get shot by some burglar in a very remote scenario than take a chance my daughter shoots herself.

I had that same conversation with my wife; she wanted to look into it and I flat-out said I'm not bringing a gun into my house. Luckily she didn't need much convincing.



My wife's best friend, a gun hugging, anti vaxxer, chem trail beliver, wife of cop, staunch Trump supporter just bought a gun to carry around with her while she shows homes in the NW suburbs(mainly Barrington, Crystal Lake area). I caused an argument by saying that you are twice as likely to shoot yourself by accident than ever need to use the gun from some criminal wanting to rape you.

Female realtor is like one of the only scenarios where it might be worth the risk.

Only if she takes a self-defense course. Although, I've seen a few women who took a self defense course challenge a guy to come at them and both times the guy easily just hugged the girl and she couldn't move even after taking the course.

Probably better to carry pepper spray on a key chain, than a gun in a purse.

Or one of these:

The (non-domestic) violent crime rate in Barrington is like 0%.

School shooting in Mattoon. One student shot, but was treated and released...and that's it because a Math/PE teacher took down the gunman. Shooter was in the custody of the school resource officer before police arrived.

I'm just sick of arguing with gun nuts. At this point, I'd welcome a gun ban because I think most of us gun owners are loons. I mean they go from 0 to delusional paranoia in less time it takes to clear a chamber.

There is some good stuff on twitter.

One I read said, "there is nothing we can do about lunatics said the nation that outlawed too much toothpaste on an airplane".

Are there any organizations or super pacs (I guess, for a lack of a better term) that you can donate to that are actively trying to get/lobby for stricter gun laws/restrictions, basically the ant-NRA? I'd love to donate to them, if there's any worthwhile to stop making some of these ridiculous guns and ammunition available.

Why wouldn't it matter that most Americans don't own a gun? One of the loudest arguments/sentiments/implications of stricter gun control is how it would threaten/anger seemingly scores of gun owners that dominate the country.

I can't wait till the next time I hear about how we have to have guns in case we need to protect ourselves from our own government. Not only was it a dumb argument before, but now that I know more than 3 of every 4 people don't own one, it's even sillier.

I get that I'm as much of an urban snowflake as there is, but, sorry, there's no way anyone's life in America in 2017 requires six different types of guns.
