You have summed it up very well. I agree with your comment "A gun is an inanimate object. A gun doesn’t think; it doesn’t feel; it has no intentions or aspirations; and despite what the Emeryville Chief of Police says, a gun does not have “offensive” or “defensive” tendencies." That is one of the most if not the most important fact that people need to realize. It takes the actions of a person to make it either good or bad, depending on how that person uses it. In the hands of a lawful responsible person it can become a good thing and can be used to stop a criminal or unlawful person from committing violence on others. In the hands of criminals, who do not follow the laws, it becomes a weapon for destruction or offensive criminal behavior
