side of an argument as Ted Nugent,
it might be time to reevaluate.
So what do these guys all agree is the solution to the problem of gun violence in America?

|Because armed vigilantes would definitely|
make dark, crowded movie theaters much safer...
|Maybe, but usually from other guns,|
so I'd say it's kind of a wash...
Rather than try and limit where people can carry their assault rifles, his solution is to wait until someone goes bananas in a populated area and just hope to hell that some fine citizen happens to be packing? Couldn't we just tell people they can't have assault rifles in the first place? It just seems like a time saver.
|I'm not sure I'm comfortable with a plan that|
relies entirely on John McClane showing up.
|Pictured: What James Madison had in mind|
when he wrote the 2nd Amendment.
We put limits on guns because it makes sense and because it's not the 18th century anymore. I don't mean to say that guns are necessarily the entire problem. I mean, obviously they are, I'm just not saying it. But can we at least all agree that it's kind of hard for something to be the solution to the problem it poses in the first place?
