I'll be honest, as much as common sense gun control makes... sense, the idea of restricting your ability to defend yourself does bother me. It seems less like a desirable outcome and more like, "Yeah this is **** but you like kids not getting shot, right?" Relying on government officials to keep you alive is kind of balls.

On the real though, I think that people who feel defenseless without a gun (yes I know you didn't exactly say that, bat) are huge pussies who probably couldn't even defend themselves with a gun if they needed to.

I don't know if there's a study on this, but I feel like it has to be true that they look for more trouble knowing they have a gun

Does it not make you feel at least a little like a government ward that your safety is dependent on people who are legally not required to protect you but only to investigate your death after the fact?

I don't really mind depending on others for safety

they should be legally required to prevent gun violence through regulation

I don't have a gun and I don't mind relying on the police, and I don't disagree with gun regulations, but the idea that my own safety should be farmed out still reeks of 1st world complacency that is only possible so long as Western civilization remains stable. It's a mentality that is allowed to exist because it can be allowed to exist rather than what would be reasonable in any other time and place in history. TBH it's perfectly reasonable that people would be slow to adjust.
