    • This is an interesting post. Yes, Australia had a mandatory buy-back of all firearms in the country. Yes, their gun violence went down. However, the violent crime in the country went straight up. Taking guns away from law-abiding citizens is a death sentence for those people. The NRA is completely funded by it’s members, not the government. When you say that the NRA pays off the government to stay out of this issue, that’s completely false. Because, well for one: that’s illegal. Two, the NRA doesn’t need to do that because they know that gun control won’t pass through congress. They know that guns are not the problem. The majority of congress knows that guns are not the problem. The majority of the nation knows that guns are not the problem. You take away guns, then people will use knives. You take away knives, people will use cars. You take away cars, people will use illegal guns. This is an unwinnable fight for gun control activists because guns are just the tool for killing. Why not blame the person instead of the object that that person used?
