Except you and facts are mutually exclusive. Emotion is all you got and an opinion that you're entitled to, but not you own set of facts.

The problems are societal and if they're not addressed NOTHING will change. A gun is a tool nothing more, nothing less.

Same group wants everyone to be helpless and let the government take care of our every whim. From health care, to education, housing, transportation and even feeding ourselves.

Well, after the last shooting I took direct, meaningful action. The Dayton shooter allegedly used an AR pistol and gun grabbers have been shrieking in the media about banning this type of weapon. Reports are that the ATF might rule against them as they did with bumpstocks. Or not. So I did the logical thing and bought one. On the Interwebz. (Eeeek! Online gun sales! Oh noez!) I値l pick it up from my friendly neighborhood FFL after passing a background check.

See, something is being done. Now I need a bigger vault.

Excuse me, but I知 going to my man cave now to do some reloading. It passes the time and is relaxing.

That reminds me, I need to pick up some .243 ammo for my rifle with the scope.

The greatest sniper in the history of the world used a bold action rifle without a scope.

He killed 700+ Russians during WW2 if I recall correctly.

This looks like an opinion to me. And you damn right I have emotion. As do the families of those killed by mass murderers. That's what's going to change the issues we have with the craziness that is going on right now.

Enjoy your new gun. I couldn't care less that you rushed right out and bought one. But there are millions out there who feel just like me, and we're working hard to address the issues.

Once again, cops kill more people in one year than all mass shootings in 10 years combined.

Do you agree that cops should be disarmed?

And what were the circumstances? Are you suggesting there is no difference in lethalness of a fire arm? If so then logically you should not have any complaints against restrictions. Such as rifles only with bolt action.
