"Gun control" is collective punishment

Collective punishment. I've said before how much I dislike it, and whyhere, here, and here.

Your fear, helplessness, or anger doesn't justify collective punishment. Nothing does; nothing can.

Anti-gun "laws", anti-gun bigots dishonestly call them "gun control", are nothing but collective punishment. Punishing innocent people for something someone else did-- something they didn't do and wouldn't do-- just because it's too hard to do anything about what happened. And just because the solution isn't what they want to do.

It's just another reason (in a large and growing stack of reasons) I despise anti-gun "laws".

I recently saw a question asking whether gun owners felt guilt over the latest school shooting by an evil loser. No, I don't. I didn't do it, and I wasn't there to try to prevent or stop it. Whether or not I have a gun has no bearing on any school shooting-- my guns were irrelevant. Disarming me wouldn't make anyone safer, except bad guys in my presence. How can anyone be stupid enough to see that as a positive thing?

How can anyone be stupid enough to advocate or support any anti-gun "laws"?
