The idea of gun control measures is based on the obvious factual evidence showing that guns are misused for violence in this country, that guns are too easily accessed, and that there is no good use for certain types of guns. Somehow this common sense is then taken as the evil government trying to create a totalitarian police state.
Yes, exactly the same...
So what exactly changed in the late 90s which caused school shootings and murderous rampages to become so common? A new bullet? Gun prices dropped?
