The story above is just one example of how gun lovers in the US have corrupted the elderly and those who are most vulnerable to respond with violence.Now that's pretty hard core, but I think I know what they mean. Being less fanatical myself, I have no problem accepting legitimate defensive uses of a gun, but what I believe is, overall they do more harm than good. On the whole, guns like this little .22 in the hands of civilians will be misused far more often than they'll be used to save the day.
I think this is what's meant by "corrupting the elderly," convincing vulnerable people that they'll be better off with guns, when that's just not the case.
What's your opinion?
