I have also never known anyone killed with a gun, except a woman 40 years ago whose crazy husband killed her, and a friend of my husband’s who killed himself.

The violence you are shown on American Pravda happens in the broken northern cities, where police are banned, and where the streets are filled with thugs because all the sensible people have moved away.
