We might hurt someone's feelings or we might be predjudice if we make someone take responsibilty for their actions. It's like they think, there's no other way to kill each other, than guns. Or the argument of children who accidentally shoot themselves. More children drowned in bathtubs every year than get killed by guns.
I wish they would let the public know if the killer had a weapons permit or not, like they do with car and motorcycle accidents and how they infer the cause of death was a result of not wearing seatbelts or helmets.
My favorite one is "If I have a boot on my foot and I kick you square in the a$$, who kicked you, me or the boot.
