As chet wrote, people need guns to protect themselves, thus is why people need guns.
Dutch wrote that there are crazy people out here owning guns, who shouldn't.
Which is exactly why gun owners need to be licensed, and the second amendment amended or scrapped entirely, it's outdated, antiquated.
BTW, Ted Cruz went with Donald trump in attacking Chicago, citing gun violence, alluding that Chicago has a high crime rate by use of guns. I never hear any republicans citing Cleveland Ohio, which has a much worse crime rate than Chicago, and also, it's not brown people committing these drug and gun crimes, if one scrutinizes the crime statistics. It's mainly white people committing these gun crimes, and black on black crimes, which is why this country is so f'ed up.
White Men Have Committed More Mass Shootings than Any Other Group
The government needs to be spending money in these neighborhoods on education and providing meaningful employment opportunities to the citizens. But our government keeps on ignoring these citizens. Lori Lightfoot is wrong in thinking of using data analytics to fight crime, she needs to be lobbying the state and fed. to get funding for jobs and education in these crime ridden neighborhoods.
It's usually angry white people who commit these mass shootings. The Texas shooter was white, and acquired his weapon/s without going through a background check. Now authorities are looking for the asswipe that sold him the gun/s. And now in Texas, a backwards thinking bunch of fools, can open carry in churches and schools, how asinine is that?
