    There are plenty of people who still fight. Go to youtube,people fight at school,walmart, weddings and funerals. The only common factor is the lack of an intelligence quotient that could reach room temperature on a cold day.

    In most of these cases the perpetrator has never handled a gun. When they get into a confrontation they pull out their piece close their eyes and fire randomly, a lot of the times it's the innocence bystander that pays the price.

    Why does everyone now have to settle everything with a gun. I'm not anti-gun by a longshot. I guess they think they are big men toting and waving a gun around, but in reality they are scared of their own shadow little men warbirdlover
