Amid all the gun violence we're shown how to build an AR-15

Most AR-15s come with blood stains
I could not believe it when I read the headline: "EXPLAINED: How to Build an AR-15 Assault Rifle," courtesy of the Gun [nut] News daily from The National Interest. The sub-head is: "Yes, this can be done. We will explain." Keep this thought while we look at some of the deadliest gun violence events in history...
58 killed - October 1, 2017 - In Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Resort and  Casino by Stephen Paddock from his hotel room lasting 10 to 15 minutes; 49 killed June 12, 2016 by Omar Saddiqui Mateen, 29, at the Pulse, a gay nightclub, in Orlando; 25 and an unborn child killed November 5, 2017 when a gunman opens fire on a small church in Sutherland Springs, Texas; 17 killed February 14, 2018 when a former student unleashes a hail of gunfire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida
There are many more you can see at the above site, but the most important factor to be considered is the fact that in most all cases an assault rifle was used, some of which were AR-15s, the very one this nut case magazine above is literally showing us how to make. So some off-the-spool gun nut can go out and buy the parts, come home and secretly put the weapon together, then go out and shoot all his friends and relatives or his fellow students.

The article even tells readers that if they are on a limited budget, "I’ve got you covered." And then it exclaims just how simple it is "to build a dependable AR-15 at home for hundreds less than what you would spend on a pre-built model." I cannot believe the specifics this piece goes into in the detailed explanation of constructing one's own AR-15 killing machine. And finally, the writer boasts of being able "to create a ready-to-shoot AR-15 in just under 90 minutes."

But, if you don't want to build your own gun, the same people have a list of five guns they claim are better than the Glock. Since I have no idea how good a Glock is and really don't care, I just focused on the fact that this clearly illustrates the fact that the United States has one of the sickest gun cultures in the world. This country has 120.5 firearms per 100 persons, a monstrous imbalance.

And there are more than 393 million civilian-owned firearms in the United States, or enough for every man, woman and child to own one and still have 67 million guns left over. I don't understand why anyone would want to take the time to make their own gun...just go out on the street and you'll find them everywhere.

Please give me your comments on this issue.
