I honestly do not understand how or why anyone who can reason would believe that gun laws will ever prevent gun crime. It is right there in the name: “gun crime.” By its very definition, crime implies that the perpetrator does not care about the law.
Then there is all the anecdotal and statistical evidence that proves gun laws actually increase the rate of gun crime – not decrease it. There is a reason that Australia reversed its gun laws. So this is strike two on the intellect meter for all those touting gun control as the answer to our problems.
The last strike is the total lack of understanding of even the most basic elements of natural law, natural rights and of liberty. NO ONE, not an individual, not society, not even the government has the ‘right’ to take ANY means of self-defense from a free person. That is a violation of natural law. And ANYONE – yes, ANYONE who argues otherwise is a tyrant – period. The only people who will EVER seek to remove your right to defend yourself are people who seek to control you. Just look to history to see if I’m not telling you the truth.
So, where do these people get off calling those of us who understand all of this “stupid?” The real stupid people here are the gun control advocates and, to barrow from something one of Sam Elliot’s characters once said:
