  •  "You shouldn't punish law abiding citizens" (7+ / 0-)

    A fairly consistent pattern in this update is the glaring fact that about a third to one half of the gun DEATHS, not just incidents, but deaths involve someone shooting a family member or coworker, or a murder-suicide.

    My problem with the claim I quoted is that most gun murders involve people the gun owner knows, and were "law abiding gun owners" until they weren't anymore.  So it's a facile argument to say regulating guns attacks law abiding citizens b/c most gun crimes aren't committed by criminals, they're usually committed by formerly (at least for the most part) Law abiding citizens.
