Just a quick note:
We don’t have to guess as to whether or not most things will work in the real world. The world isn’t nearly as mysterious as people think. We can look into things like “more guns make people safer,” and find, though research of the real world using the scientific method, what the answer is. And the answer is clearly “no,” but people who have already chosen guns, like any other humans, hate to be wrong, and so they defend their pre-chosen position against all facts and logic to the contrary. I was relatively pro-gun when I was younger. Then I learned the facts. I’m not pro-gun anymore.
