Guns in America
I have always leaned toward the take all the guns away stance. It seems to me that there is no reason why anyone needs to possess a tool of murder. However, it is, clearly, a pointless position. When Jesus wrote the constitution, he plainly said that every American can, and should, posses whatever tools they need to protect themselves. (Clearly this was a needed thing in America. The 3rd Amendment says that a soldier has to ask permission before staying at your house.)
In light of that fact, I appreciated this article. It demonstrated the pointlessness on the margins of the Gun Debate.
I will say, however, that as an American there is one reason why many of us hate AR-15s. The reason is that in 2012, two weeks before Christmas, a mad man killed 20 children with one.
