For too long people have to die in order for politicians to see what they have to do. There has to be stricter gun laws in the United States

I have been around a lot of guns in my life and I have yet to see a gun that was laying on a table just start shooting and kill someone! It takes an idiot to up it up and pull the trigger for that to happen. My cousin was killed by an "accidental" gun discharge but if the idiot had not pointed it at him and playfully (yeah right) pulled the trigger he would still be alive today. Gun control is not the answer because these idiots that are killing people are not using guns that they purchased legally. Let's face it, the criminals will always out gun the cops and stupid people will always do stupid things!
