I get that Saint Louis, Missouri has a high violent crime rate. I understand that perfectly well. I even sympathize with them over it. Frankly, if it were just the criminals killing each other, I probably wouldn’t have much sympathy, but since they don’t confine their violence to their own numbers, it becomes a problem for the rest of the city.
Like I said, I get that.
Yet what the other side of the gun debate never seems to get is that it’s not the law-abiding gun owners faults that criminals using illegally obtained firearms are shooting up entire neighborhoods.
