Why not pursue “social engineering” in the aspect of firearms responsibility?
Something a lot of Americans have moved away from, I would say out of their complacency.
Would not education in responsible ownership and use be a much more effective way of mitigation versus new laws and restrictions on our freedoms?
Firearms ownership is not comparable to smoking, alcohol consumption, or drug use. There is no direct effect to ones health unless they are irresponsible and reckless. Chemical consumption is far more risky than firearms ownership and not in the same class.
You are starting to get it now.
I commend you up to that last paragraph where you missed the point that both smoking and playing with guns are dangerous anti-social habits. And yes chemical consumption is risky if not tightly controlled by government, but there are killer infections like H1N1 about that will attack your family in your home and we do not allow you to play with the weapons that are needed to fight off such an attack. We rely on professionals for that.
