Guns are not the problem

No one can deny how tragic the events in Las Vegas were. Any event that results in the loss of human life is tragic; however, we should not allow these instances to dictate our norms as it relates to guns. Beyond that, those who want to restrict guns are on the wrong do so without considering data.

78% of Americans do not own a gun, so the argument that we should restrict guns doesn't make logical sense because a majority of people aren't interested in owning a gun. We also know that the national murder rate dropped to a 33-year low, but despite these statistical facts, those on the left have been quick to critize this terrible event for political gains.
