Why Gun Control Is So Contentious in the US

"There are people who want to own guns for recreational or self-defense purposes, and on the other side, I don't think anyone wants to see someone walk into a crowded movie theater and kill people," said Art Markman, professor of psychology at the University of Texas.

It's a poop argument, the 9/11 hijackers used Boeing aircraft to kill thousands, yet no one is asking Boeing to quit manufacturing assault airplanes, LOL!

Right, but not just anyone can own, operate and fly one. Besides, how often does an event like 9/11 happen? You do the math.

Same holds true wit mass shootings. They are statistically rare.

Actually, the 9/11 hijackers didn't own, operate or fly those aircraft...they manipulated the controls, but none of them were an owner, airline or licensed pilot. Do the math.

As for guns, people have a right to keep and bear them, the theater stole those people's right to arm themselves by putting up a "gun free zone" sign. The 9/11 hijackers didn't have a right to hijack those planes.

In honor of the survivors of the Cinema 9 massacres, I'm building my next AR15 in honor of them, just awaiting the postal service to deliver the remaining parts. I was thinking about having a bat man logo lazer engraved on the buffer assembly and painted the correct colors, how does that grab your teats?
