Sometimes these people just say anything.
This man is an idiot. I don’t think having faith or not having faith is the problem, lax gun laws and easy access to purchasing them is. Wherever guns are commonplace, in any society, there will be a higher incidence of shootings, compared to societies where it is not in the culture for civilians to routinely have access to them...that must be self evident. As far as differences between states in the USA...don’t the gun laws differ from state to state, and could that not account for the disparity?
