The argument that elected officials are responsible for the actual acts of killing and murder is not true. Elected officials can’t cause countless deaths in a span of seconds. They are not the objects that fire bullets into bodies. Guns are the weapons of destruction, and guns are instruments that kill people.
It is true that when common-sense gun laws don’t get passed, it makes it easier for gun violence to continue to be perpetuated. But, elected officials and politicians do not directly cause death. They are indirectly related to the prevailing causes, which are bad people with guns and guns themselves. Guns kill people.
