Simple minded arguments against sensible gun laws

Lives are more important than guns

Today is the day after the Texas school shooting where 19 children were killed by an 18-year-old boy. C-Span callers against improving gun laws gave the following solutions to gun violence in America:

  1. Put locks on the inside of schoolroom doors. That will keep the bad guys out.
  2. Schools need armed guards.
  3. These shootings are the price of freedom in America.
  4. Fix the cultural breakdown and the kids on drugs.
  5. Where are the families of these shooters?
  6. Everybody needs to have a gun to make us safe.

These are simple solutions for people with simple minds who only want to keep their guns.  None of them will begin to decrease gun violence.
