Maybe someone should remind the Russians that more Russian people were shot deliberately and as a matter of official government policy and political expediency, by agents of the People's Commissars of the Soviet Union than have been murdered on the North American continent since the beginning of time.
Stalin alone was responsible for the deaths of at least 20 million Russians, and that includes no one killed during WWII era. Of those about half were actually shot. Shot by their government, on purpose.
So before anyone starts going all ape-feces about mass shootings in the U.S., just realize that the government in Russia is still basically the same one that Joseph Stalin had, run by the same kind of people and with the same basic principles.
Yes, that includes the period of time when the U.S. was actively exterminating the indigenous people here.
So whatever you think of guns being dangerous in the hands of citizens, it is far superior to what happens when guns are ONLY in the hands of socialist bureaucrats.
