Is social media more dangerous than guns?

90% of life is "showing up"

Maybe so. Certainly the youth suicide rate has been increasing and many can point to social media bullying.

I think it is. Without a doubt.

Then again, I'm over 50, so my opinions are biased and close-minded, according to another topic here....

No... both guns and social media are simply tools. One used to kills things at a distance... the other designed to serve as a means of connecting people both near and far. Both are equally useful when applied for their purpose. Both also easily used by opposing parties for controlling the other.

The only difference is that respect for the damage a firearm can do can be easily taught to even a child. Social media on the other hand hides its potential danger in plain sight. It’s power lies in the ability to manipulate countless without much effort.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...
