Here, in mid-2013, anti-gun legislation and a current crazed anti-gun fad is in the air. Unsurprisingly, politicians are joyously seizing upon the recent mass public shootings as an opportunity to remove guns from the American public.
The most obvious response to this, of course, is that any law would only affect good people. It wouldn't affect bad people one tiny bit. Good people, if anti-gun laws were passed, would not have guns. Bad people would. To me, this seems wrong.
But getting back to the mass shootings, wouldn't a more direct solution be to make a law against going into public places and shooting all the people? It seems to me that that would address the issue much more specifically and efficiently. Problem solved!
Here's something else that the anti-gun nuts don't understand: The gun community isn't attacking you. You are attacking the gun community, and they have every right to defend themselves in every way possible.
