After Abortion Gun Control Is the Most Divisive Issue We Face

 Next on the list of issues with passion that divide us the most after the leader abortion

Where pro-life and pro-choice view each other’s positions as total aversion
Is the issue of the clash of the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms
With that of gun control measures to reduce the toll of deadly harm
54 percent of Americans believe there should be more restrictions on the right to own guns
30 percent believe the 2nd Amendment rights are absolute and 15 percent believe removal from the Constitution should have begun
On mass shootings 55 percent feel the mental health crisis is to blame
While 33 percent feel gun control restrictions give them free reign
With rising violent crime rates and gun crimes in urban areas not enforced to the full extent
With defund the police and resignations much longer wait times cops responding to 911 calls to be sent
Our cities  begin to look more and more like the Wild West
Without enough sheriffs and marshals to the gunslingers arrest
And perchance an unlucky felon is arrested for a violent crime
Released on cashless bail to again and again ape his acts before serving any time
The higher the percentage of residents of a state
That carry guns the lower the violent crime rate
Felons may not obey the law but stupid in risk taking they are not
Breaking and entering a home or trying to rob a gun owner a greater risk of being shot
