This is a part of this debate I’m really getting sick of. The NRA and their supporters have this ridiculous all or nothing attitude about EVERYTHING surrounding this.
I was listening to NPR last night on my way home from work and they played a clip from Joe Biden speaking with someone (can’t remember who) regarding gun regulation and the conversation went along the lines of (and I’m paraphrasing here)
Biden: How many people would have to be saved for it to be an acceptable number.
Other Person: See - you jump right to the most …
Biden: You’re the one being ridiculous, if 10 people instead of 30 are killed, then you made an impact.
Other Person (really snarky tone): Well, 28 people died at Virginia Tech.
I really don’t see what the other person’s point was, Biden hit the nail right on the head, and these NRA supporters act like ANY additional regulation is unnecessary because it wouldn’t stop ALL gun violence.
That’s like saying we should stop arresting drunken drivers because it doesn’t stop all people from driving drunk. It’s absolutely absurd and so illogical it hurts.
