If we are the greatest nation in the worldGood point, Eric, the opposition wants nothing to be done and do everything they can to keep the status quo, or make the situation worse.
our way of life is better than in any other country
we are a society of equitable laws
our most important resource is our people
the most precious among our people are our kids
we have the best and brightest minds in the world on our side
we order our society by the will of the people
why do people keep shooting each other and we can't seem to do anything other than post shit on Facebook decrying another tragedy has occurred?
We can't stop natural disasters.
We can't stop disease.
We can't keep time from taking our loved ones away.
We have decided consciously not to fix this.
All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.

Which is what the "pro-gun" side fears most.
