It's really not about guns or gun violence in the long run with progressives. It's about fear. They fear an armed populace of right thinking, constitutionally aware people that just don't want to roll over at the drop of a hat. People that do right, live right but choose to take their own lives and destiny into their own hands instead of handing it over to some unseen and most likely corrupt authority, Big Brother figure. Progressives in their hearts are deathly afraid of individuality, of freedom, of people that stand for individuality. They HAVE to blame the guns because if they don't, it gives their enemies, which is us and people that think like most of us here, a tool to oppose them in their push for domination and control over the lives of basically, everyone. So, they live in fear of what we represent, freedom and a will to be what WE want to be, peaceful, but strong individuals. They are corrupt to their souls and for the life of me I don't know why, and I don't think they know either.
