I do not really care about guns one way or another, I don't have an opinion on the matter. I think if people own them and are responsible, then fine. I also feel the Newtown tragedy is so horrible. But what I can't understand is why people are so outraged when a man walked into the school & killed 20 children with a gun. But no one cares when someone takes out a beautiful family every day through drunk driving wrecks. I know someone who lost 4 family members in one of the most horrific drunk driving wrecks that I have ever heard of. And it happens all the time in the larger cities. I think that over 100 people have been killed by drunk drivers in my city alone during a year's time. I live in LA. Why is there no outrage over banning alcohol? Is it because it's so old hat? Because it happens all the time & no one cares anymore? Because so many more people like to drink than like to carry guns?
What is the difference? Alcohol kills way more people. 20 children vs. thousands every year? I don't get it? And again, it's not that I'm not sympathetic. I cried for days over those sweet children.
