Most people say it's their right to protect themselves. Well, then why do we have innocent murders like Oregon, and Cleveland?

I'm not really a fan of guns, but I think the issue is that guns were invented in the first place. Why we encourage people to own literal murder machines is beyond me. Like in my mind, a guy like George Zimmerman is wrong, in many ways, but relevant to this topic, he upped the ante on use of force. If you're going to have a gun, you shouldn't be able to shoot someone just trying to fistfight with you, that's insane and incredibly pussy. You should only shoot someone trying to shoot you. The "get the hell of my property" nut jobs are batshit too. I'm a firm believer in fighting with your own two hands. If you produce a weapon of any kind, you're soft, period. Guns are a thing though, and that bell can't be un-rung. I honestly have no answer. I mean, obviously not every gun owner is a bad person, and I think a good amount, if not the majority, have no bad intentions. But I just can't get over that you ultimately own this gun because you're scared. Maybe scared to get your ass kicked, OR maybe you're scared of... wait for it... other people with guns. So you need a gun to protect yourself from other people with guns. What a cycle... But the real issue as far as these horrible shootings is mental health. Smarter people than me will have to come up with the solution, but I'd just say that if you're a pussy and can't deal with life, just shoot yourself, don't take out normal people who CAN deal with life.0
