There’s an outdated joke that goes like this: before the invention of toilets, people used to build very wide shit-holes. If you asked why are they so wide you’d get an answer: “because we want to be able to pull out lambs that fall into the hole!”. The gun control issue in US reminds me of this. One argument that pro guns say is that if everyone had guns it would be safer, but it seems strange to me as I think it would be safer if everybody gave up their gun (which might be very optimistic). But then again, I’m a schmuck with very little knowledge about the issue. I just wanted to tell that silly joke!
