As always, the prog-libs find something or some one else to blame all their woes (real and imagined) on.
Guns are no different. An inanimate object that is imbued with the power to cause people to become victims and purp's. Gangs, "gansta's," criminals, family decay, bad schools, the national debt - all the result of someone or something else besides irresponsible people like themselves.
They all want to live free of guilt and responsibility, to deny self-will and self-governance. To be cared for by others through the extortion of the labor and wealth of someone else.
They're all pathetic.
