The ridiulousness of guns being blamed for violence as if they are living, breathing entities making their own decisions wasn’t lost on some:
@SenBlumenthal I suppose that putting the blame on an inanimate object absolves you of the responsibility to address the root cause.

@SenBlumenthal is there a true difference between gun violence and violence in general? It seems to me violence is the key word, not gun.

If a homicidal driver were to commit a hit-and-run in his or her vehicle, would Blumenthal call for an end to “car violence”?
