Morgan Freeman made an announcement today the this was not his quote. Regardless, the words still hold a great deal of truth.
Yeah, I was actually just reading that it wasn't him. However I'll keep the post up as I agree with the statements.
If you wish to quote a known source, Roger Ebert said something very similar to this after the Columbine shooting. You can find it right now on boing boing, but here's a non-hyperlink:
Freeman has very actively said quite the opposite and is an enemy of gun-rights.
Yes I'm quite aware of Mr Freeman's beliefs.
on the issue of gun rights I have one observation to illustrate in america one of the if not the highest killers is auto collisions yet cars were not created to kill people and yet kill tens of thousands every year. On the other hand firearms were created for the sole purpose of killing game or other human beings yet you do not have to go through the permit and license process that is required for a car to purchase and own a gun. If people really want to implement effective gun control it should be to control the education of those gun owners and certification of those aspiring gun owners. Having an instructor present to judge who is capable of responsible gun ownership is in my opinion the only way that we can effectively curtail gun violence in this country.
P.S. Preventing all violence is a problem that we should be trying to solve because you do not need a gun to kill someone and an empty gun is just another expensive piece of metal.
