Guns

As with many conflicts, advocates of both sides are partly to mostly right.

Keep in mind this New York Times article (2015 Dec 3):

How Often Do Mass Shootings Occur? On Average, Every Day, Records Show

Gun control advocates are right to insist on strict control of gun sales and ownership.
Gun-owner-rights advocates are right that strict control of gun sales and ownership will not eliminate crime.

These views are not incompatible at all.

What is incompatible is NRA insistence on no gun control laws,
even when the majority of its own members and gun owners in general support reasonable gun control laws.
