I admit - I love America. I love the country, the people, the diversity, the food, the craziness. I know it has its faults but in general I love it. Except for one major thing. Guns.

Now, I can understand if one considers the timing of this article inappropriate, but I confess I feel a certain calling to write it; my pro-gun beliefs are firm, and if one considers someting to be morally acceptable, I could suppose that guns are in need of an advocate. A rational one.
