You really don't have anything do you? You're just a bag of air and NRA talking points.
I was going to respond differently, but I went to reread your initial post to me. I apologize if I misread, but most of my posts have been to counter this whole gun banning vs. the actual cause. I didn't read your beginning posts because I entered this thread in reply to a specific comment I saw. I see your point, knee jerk reactions aren't a proper answer and you are right, the root is what needs to be fixed. I focused on what I believe you saw as me ignoring these cause which isn't the case. I've made plenty of statements that banning a weapon isn't the solution, but finding a solution to the core is where we need to be. Hopefully that clarifies a bit and is taken better than the prick response I received.
