There are no shortage of firearm dramas on the news: a horrific shooting where the victim died, the crazed shooter shot down a gunman at a football game, the mass shooting in Las Vegas. But perhaps the most horrifying statistic associated with the firearm carnage being portrayed in these stories is this: 91 people die every day from gun violence in the US.
For these 91 victims, there’s simply no getting around it: their deaths were senseless. A gun like the one used in Orlando is an unregulated, lightly regulated and easy to obtain — and once it’s out of their hands, the individuals responsible are rarely held accountable.

It turns out that the most dangerous gun designed for people is an unregulated one. The gun used in Orlando was called the “ghost gun”: a semiautomatic that simply fires without trigger action. For people who like to pretend they can shoot fireworks, they are a fun toy that’s not nearly as dangerous as the stock consumer versions. But they’re a bad toy nonetheless.
A whopper of a hole? Yup, that’s the hole at the bottom of a vanilla ghost gun. Anyone walking into a gun store looking for a Zombie Grant Buster with 50 rapid fire shots should be automatically sent to fire an over-size screwdriver into the hole. Yes, that’s right: An American gun that fires without trigger action isn’t too scary if the person who pulls the trigger is without insurance.
