Ah, yes, because most people want to be histrionic it must be so! Most people during WWII felt it was ok to refer to Japanese as "slant eyed yellow monkeys" and allow them to be interred.. must have been ok, right? And yet again, you assume that MOST people feel this way, where is your proof? What study shows that most Americans think that gun violence is an epidemic? (although I really wouldn't care if they did)

A complete weasel answer. I gave a hard metric, I expect one in return. Your answer is bullshit that can easily be used to "move the goalposts" as you pointed out earlier. What HARD METRIC makes gun violence NOT an epidemic for you? Don't think I'm going to let you demand one from me and not get one in return.
