Your health care system is one of the worst among industrialized nations. Your education ranking falls annually. Around half of your residents are living in poverty. Mental illness is demonized. Women are blamed for violent crimes. Rapists are rarely prosecuted and face consequences. Your economy is in shambles. Your unemployment rate is staggering. You are a divided nation.
Yet the issue that impassions you and gets you riled up is GUNS. Are you for real? Why cling to your guns and ignore the real problems? Can someone explain the thought process here? It's truly puzzling.
If we are that bad then why are all these illegals trying to get in? Hmmm.

because people arent dying in their face over education OR poverty...that old man down the street starved to death because NO ONE gave a damn, type of example. ....if he died in someone's face of starvation, more impact would have been felt. If a group of kids died of starvation, it would wake people up. Not until a tragedy strikes do people really decide to listen and try to do something, but often it's too late.
I don't, but it's hard to ignore the vicious gun control battles. Why don't the majority of citizens get equally impassioned about education? Or eradicating poverty?
Will thank you for painting us all with the same broad brush. That doesn't reflect too well on you.
Hello? Do you not see the 4.3 million welfare posts, the presidential debates that were going on pre-november, the 40 posts on rape that have been posted in the last 2 days......like guns are the only thing people argue over. *rolls eyes*
