Try the Happycrow “gun issue” litmus test!

Just a quick post to slightly expand on a Facebook discussion.

Here’s what the “gun issue” is about:  preventing murder.

And here’s two very factual statements regarding guns and murder:

1. Guns have been used to murder a lot of innocent people.
2. Guns have been used by a lot of innocent people to prevent murder.

Do you have a strong opinion regarding guns, their regulation, and their ownership?  Do you have a plan of action to solve the problem?

Does that plan take both of these factual statements into account?  Or does it address one while dismissing or only paying lip-service to the other?

If you answered WHY YES, HAPPYCROW, IT DOES, then you are a reasonable participant in our national dialogue on guns. Please continue, and post a comment; I’d like to hear what you have in mind.

If not, please consider thinking a lot prior to spouting off on this emotional and volatile subject.

Also, yes, I have considered the 2nd-amendment angles and citizen-vs-state angles.  For years, and quite seriously.
