I find it disturbing that we only want to talk about gun violence. All sorts of violence disturbs me. Timothy McVeigh 168 people, 19 of them children age 6 or less, using fertilizer. I abhor violence regardless of what weapon is used. Self defense is a reasonable and ethical response to violence, and statistics show that firearms are used, usually without firing a shot, 40 to 80 times as often for lawful self defense as they are to take the life of another ( one to two million times a year according to Gary Kleck, versus 12 to 13 thousand times a year according to CDC statistics).
