My view on why “GUNS DON’T KILL PEOPLE, PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE” is flawed:
The reason why “Guns don’t kill people, People kill people” doesn’t work is because ‘People’ get drunk, ‘People’ get high, ‘People’ get emotional, ‘People’ get scared or ‘People’ get insane. (Or all of the above simultaneously) This leads to slaughter, carnage and pain (as well as many many many accidents). From my perspective, it seems that those standing on the right, or standing on a God Book, seem to be in denial of the above fact, and presume everyone to be somehow completely functional, all of the time, and somehow completely perfectional, all of the time. A society based on this flawed logic is distrustful and frightening. (and tragic from a Humanist perspective)
