It’s truly sad that some people are so obsessed with gun ownership and blame all violence on guns. People kill and maim with many instruments. People who continue to complain about guns are hindering the need to deal with violence, and some people foolishly can’t separate that fact.

Statistics show that most violent acts with guns are with guns that were stolen.

In fact, we have more gun laws now than ever before, and people still kill with them. People kill with bats, knives and many other things. Countries that don’t allow people to own guns have murders. It’s sad that the real issue is being ignored because some people have tunnel vision about guns when they should focus on the violence.
