11. Norway has a very low poverty rate and low gun violence rate compared to the US

You are saying somehow gun violence causes poverty but the reality is poverty causes gun violence.

You have it backwards.

It is not a talking point. It is the truth.

I believe in strict gun control. I believe every gun owner and gun user would need a license with fees and educational classes and recurrent testing. I also believe every gun should be registered and have an engraved ID number (unless it is a historical gun) that is registered. Any gun that is found not to be registered and/or not attached to a licensed owner should be destroyed.

That is what we really need and goes way past Mrs. Weathervane's "common sense" gun laws.

However that has nothing to do with the fact that poverty is a root cause of gun violence and not the other way around.

You can



All you want but you are still wrong.
