Firearms are a tool. Like any tool, guns can be used for good or for ill. I’ve seen guns used in positive ways thousands, if not tens of thousands, of times in my life. On the other hand, I’ve seen them used for ill less than 10 times.
The media certainly plays up the negative uses of firearms, but rarely shows any kind of positive use. Its obvious the main stream media has an agenda, and that is to create a sense of fear around guns and people who own them.
