You do not go with the gun control debate you want, you go with the gun control debate you have
December 21, 2012 by William K. Wolfrum
The main problem of any rational gun control debate in the U.S. is thus:
One side wants zero gun control regulation and view guns as intangible objects that define their Liberty. Liberty is an intangible concept.
The other side wants rational and responsible gun control regulations and view guns as tangible objects designed to kill tangible objects. Tangible objects such as humans.
Many more people reside within the middle of these two sides. But they are not invited to the debate.
