The point with having guns in a context where fascists already been having a gun culture for ages is to have a line of deterrence. Fascists only know the language of violence, as a group at least. They are fanatical people on the same level as groups like Daesh and

But what's better deterrence against guns are the (somewhat) non-lethal means to render guns useless, as guns are also old tech, and since them we've had the spread of cheap chemical and laser technologies. But all these asymmetrical warfare fanboy considerations are still secondary to the reality that social conflict is rooted in hate dynamics that should be tackled by completely different approaches than street fighting.

I feel sorry for this mom. Losing her son to a bunch of shit men is sad. Maybe forgiveness may work against hate, at least at the individual level. Tho I wouldn't put too many bets on that.
