However, some gun rights activists are using this incident to stoke fear that the government is going to take away Americans' guns and their Second Amendment rights to bear arms.
No one is talking about banning guns.
Having people continuously say that the government or anyone reasonable within the government is talking about 'banning guns' or is going to take away people's guns as the first line in any discussion about gun violence in America is really ridiculous.
Aren't those reasonable, debatable questions?
Fear is not our friend. Fear is the fuel of our collective enemy.
