Why are some people so obsessed with firearms?

Most of these crazy gun obsessed people seem to have some kind of hero complex. They dream of using this weapon to save somebody. Or they dream of using it to prevent the government from taking their property.

But the truth is that it is very unlikely that their weapon is at home to shoot a ball in self-defense.

This same weapon is much, much more likely to be used by the owner or another person in the house to injure someone by accident, or to injure themselves or another person intentionally in a moment of great heat.

Being a responsible firearms owner, that is knowing these facts. But the crazies deny these facts.

Why do the Liberals hate firearms and the second amendment?

They were singing that same song in the '70s when I was a kid and there were a lot fewer "active shooters" at that time.

They could ban firearms today, and criminals would continue to get and shoot with people with them, as in Britain.

The only ones disarmed would be law-abiding citizens.

How is it that Japan is never slaughtered or has a high homicide rate? Since their country is strict about firearms.

European country with the lowest number of violent crimes: Switzerland

European country with the largest number of firearms: Switzerland

Moreover, Japan's culture, people and government are very different from those of America or of all European countries. It is a tiny peninsula that is almost entirely homogeneous and has a culture of work, did I mention work? The United States has gangs that have more firearms and manpower than the police and they get most of their money off the black market. None of this exists in Japan.

How can one oppose the background check of online firearms purchases and gun shows?

I do not think many people really oppose background checks, as you might think. It's all because of the representation (and the disadvantages).

Freedom and independence are at the heart of American thought. We became a nation with the government we had (at the time) because we opposed a big government. The state of mind is essentially the following: "It's my property, my decisions and my life, do not tell me what to do."

I think the problem for most people "opposed to background checks" is the idea that, over time, all these small increases in the restrictions on the purchase of firearms will lead to gun law (the only things that can really protect us from a tyrannical government.) and an increase in government with a diminished ability to defend ourselves against those who want to harm us.
