You keep implying that gun owners are tricked by Hollywood or advertisers or whoever.
But, your statements show either you are intentionally arguing a falsehood; or you are the one mislead into believing all criminals are some kind of Jean Valjean sympathetic character.
The news THIS morning in Chicago shows that is not the case.
*Five shootings left seven people injured overnight, as Chicago's unseasonably warm weekend continued to be a violent one. The shootings followed an afternoon and evening in which eight people were shot, one fatally. Earlier in the weekend, 15 people were shot, four of them fatally, between 6 p.m. Friday night and Saturday morning.
Some people believe that all gun ownership is responsible for gun violence; if that is your view then argue that point.
But, trying to say there are not dangerous criminals in the world is ridiculous.
