But America seems to be the place the whole world thinks of when apparently ordinary people use guns for grotesque acts of violence.

For one, CNN doesn't know what the "whole world" thinks.

Two, for CNN to say the "whole world" thinks that, even while aknowledging that gun-owning Americans oviously don't think that, makes the CNN writer a liar or at bst illogical.

Three, it doesn't matter what the "whole world" thinks, or even what "part of the world" thinks, because our rights do not come from "the world."

Four, "ordinary" people do not use guns for grotesque purposes. "Ordinary" people know their guns are for stopping people who intend to do "grotesque" things, or for stopping elitists who intend to do grotesque things to our rights.

Five : The reason this "world" they are talking about associates ordinary Americans with using guns for grotesque purposes is the media. It's the same world which ties itself in knots trying to avoid associating muslims with using guns, and bombs, and machetes, and whatever for grotesque purposes.

Six: How come the people who claim carrying an ID to prove you are eligible to vote is a terrible thing and a violation of human rights, are the same people who think every law abiding citizen who owns a gun should be fingerprinted, eye-scanned, microchipped, ear-tagged, papered, photographed, tracked, put on a reservation without access to talk radio, and forced to attend sensitivity training?

Both thumbs way up.

Except, may I suggest a slight adjustment for #5? - Not only just the media, but also entertainment media (tv, movie, gaming, some music, etc.)
