Do you accept the premise that violence exists and will always exist despite the method of transference of evil. If so then you should be able to understand that a "Responsible Gun Owner" has accepted the obligation and right to protect themselves and all those principles, people, places, and things they hold dear in the event that someone is intent on bringing harm. The problem is that the evil in this world manifests itself to you Jon, in physical objects. This tangible object can be banned & destroyed and gives you a nice feeling, however you haven't destroyed the violence.
Guns are not the issue, they are not violent towards anyone or speak ill of you or me. They are a tool created to put food on the table and to defend oneself. People decide which tool to use and unfortunately some people choose the wrong one.
