The point that you're completely missing is that your "cure" is worse than the "disease.">

   Nobody is saying that anything is a cure, it was to point out that guns can't prevent mass shootings if mass shootings occur in places where people DON'T have guns! Because the victims are defenseless and unarmed, hence the mass shooters target them because they, you know, WANT to kill people.

Your solution to gun violence is to arm everywhere like police stations? Greaaaat.>

 Ridiculous, I never said that. It's pretty obvious that these things occur in places without much security.


And what's wrong with that? Your entire argument consists of privileging ownership of guns over the fact that 30,000+ Americans die from guns every year, a rate far, far higher than any first world country. Is gun ownership worth that to you? 80+ lives a day?>

  What's wrong  with the war on drugs? If you're asking if making drugs illegal solved anything, not only did it not not help, it filled our prison with nonviolent drug users (Including medical marijuana.) and addicts, and there's also the fact that you can still get drugs INSIDE prison! And if Prohibition didn't work, why do you think that gun bans do (And they actually DID have a decade-long assault ban.)? Also, you're being disingenious when you say priviledged gun ownership, guns have been legal for Centuries. And most of those 30,000 deaths are not homicides, most are suicides (Suicide is not a crime.)  and many of them are self-defense or accidents. And yes, just because people MISUSE guns doesn't mean that other people can't or shouldn't have them. Alcohol kills thousands per year too, but there's no hatred for that.
