The more you learn about what is actually going on in the world, the less you follow along with the herd mentality of what they want you to think. Our founding fathers were brilliant and really tried to design a system that would protect the peoples rights. That is why our constitutional rights are not clearly emphasized in our educational system. If the motives for gun control was truly to save lives, we have many other things that should be outlawed because they can be and are used to kill people too. Cars, knives, poison, bats, ropes, just to name a few examples. You can probably think of a few things yourself.
