Strangely, many Americans still believe having a gun will keep them safe, dear reader.
And in our current blame culture, survivors of the USA's latest mass shooting are now implicating the authorities who were out to save them. People who arm themselves with guns cannot blame gunmen or guns for deaths as they then involve themselves. And in a coutry where having a gun is seen as normal, this could account for more people than it does not. Instead, they seek to divert attention to the heroes who save them.
Guns do not protect, they kill.
