What Are We Talking About When We Talk About Guns?

“We’re going to have to have a conversation.”
We’ve all used it, the shorthand for “I want you to feel better, but I’m not interested in fixing this problem, because it is hard.” We kick the can and go along, surprised but not shocked when we’re standing in front of the can again. It’s happened long enough. We need to break up.
We need to break up with guns.
I know. We like them. Guns are fun. At times, they are even necessary. But we cannot keep ignoring the terrible things that they do just because we like them. 
For some of us, it is much easier to end the relationship. Some of us see guns as the asshole who keeps turning up to parties, who can be fun, but is often just as destructive. We want him gone. But others grew up with him, maybe even served with him, and he’s fine when they hang out one-on-one. So how do we to kick him out of the friend group without hurting anybody’s feelings?
Well, we’re not. Breakups don’t work like that. Which is why the gun “debate” usually starts with bar…
