Living in a country where 100,000+ die from “peace-time” gun violence every year, you'd think it would be an easy decision to make – get rid of the guns and fewer people will be killed by guns.
There is no point in going over all the pro and con arguments.
The bottom line is, until the American public changes from:
Unless you support the status quo on gun-ownership I will not vote for you
Unless you support strict gun-control I will not vote for you
nothing will change.
