This is where the liberal mindset comes in and has taken over common sense. One of the core beliefs of the liberals is that there is no good or bad, right or wrong, only grey. This way it makes it easier for them to blame the inanimate object, i.e. the gun, than the person who commits the crime. Just notice that whenever a crime is committed with a gun it is the gun that is blamed and NOT the criminal. And it is not just liberals think this way. Mitt Romney said of the strict gun laws in Mass. that he supports them and that he thinks "they protect us."
