On Nov. 8, 1998, my parents were both killed by a single .22 caliber gunshot wound to the head. My father fired both bullets. At no time did it occur to me to blame the weapon, nor has it since. My father murdered my mother and then turned the weapon on himself, leaving no note or message of any kind. So I guess I have a unique perspective on the topic of guns and “gun control.”
Although my father murdered my mother with a .22 rifle, do you think it matters to me how he did it? More importantly, if you think he wouldn’t have done it without a gun, you know little of human nature.
