How many billions will that border wall cost? If getting rid of guns would save tens of thousands of lives, don't you think it would be worth it?

Exactly! Perhaps if this gun violence continues and guns are not restricted or highly regulated, the US should build border walls around each and every state along with checkpoints.

People with guns look like wolves to sheep.

No way of discerning a good guy with a gun (open carry) from a bad guy with a gun either. At least not until the bad guy with a gun opens fire on civilians.

You see wolves everywhere, don't you?

No, I see people openly carrying long firearms and have no way to discern their motive for doing so. Can you?

No, but I also see people in cars and have no way of determining their mental state or their desire to plow into people on the sidewalk. Do I want to ban cars? No, because the vast, vast majority of drivers and gun owners are not bat-scat criminal crazy!

Like I said. Sheep. Perfect example.

The same people who worry about who is carrying a gun with no training, are the ones who have blocked young people from gun training. Luckily, the 4H and Boy Scouts still do it here.

Cars are used to transport people. What is an AK-47 used for in a Walmart or donut shop?

The Sandy Hook shooter had gun training.
