Ah, the old bumper sticker line. “I’ll give up my gun . . .”. I used to fantasize about modifying those stickers by just one word. “I’ll give up my prick when they pry my cold dead fingers from around it”. Oh so apt, but I was chicken.
Coffee Man, as long as our borders are porous, guns will always be available. Mexico’s porous border allows the cartels to have grenades from South Korea, full automatic AK47 machine guns from China, and hand guns from Italy. Only 50% of Mexico’s guns come from the U.S. but with porous borders, guns can cross both ways.
Availability and accessibility are far apart. It’s the fetishizing of a (dangerous) object that I worry about. Every person I know who’s been shot has been the victim of an accident.
