Gun violence must surely be the worst feature of American culture with 2.97 deaths per 100,000 population (England 0.07). Virtually every country with a worse record is located in Central/South America. It is a threat to civilisation that doesn't come from jihadists, but from a whole section of population who regard gun ownership as engrained and confused with the idea of American liberty. Obama is absolutely right to focus on this issue and I wish more politicians were similarly prepared to confront the gun lobby.

If someone illegally uses a gun as a weapon they do receive extra punishment.

If someone legally uses a gun as a weapon, like in the case of self defense they don't receive any punishment.

Not sure what your problem here is.


The law is "with a deadly weapon".  That can mean a pool cue, bat, brass knuckles...

So, they don't specifically target guns.  Now, why don't the gun control advocates call for enhanced sentences for gun crimes?

  

Because it's just a clever, pithy saying based on comedy show talking points shortcutting logic and reason and making the issue worse. ~ Queshank
