'Gun-control' is Wrong for This World

Everyone has their own perspective, but some beliefs are more accurate than others. That is certainly true about 'gun-control'. Do we have too little 'gun-control', or too much? Do we have too few firearms regulations or too many? Our answers say a lot about us, but the facts about 'gun-control' can be confusing.

If we live with angels, then there is nothing to fear so there is also no need for 'gun-control'. In contrast, if the world is filled with criminals, then gun control doesn’t work because everyone ignores our gun laws. We don’t live in either of those worlds. We don’t have to guess about the real world because we can look for ourselves and see what works and what fails.

We disarmed law abiding people who wanted to carry a concealed firearm in public. We disarmed them by charging them hundreds of dollars for their carry permit. We disarmed them by costing them days of training. We disarmed them by the bureaucracy taking months to get them their license. About 11 million people said it wasn’t worth the time, money and hassle. About 5 million more of us were disarmed in states that deny almost all concealed carry applications. By a conservative estimate, 'gun-control' disarmed 16 million good guys. .....

"Gun-control' is predictably the chosen mantra for those seeking control and, if they had their way, total disarmament. It is invariably the gun that conveniently gets all the blame whereas it is bad people who commit crime by many means - but then it is so much more convenient to punish good people and deprive them of their means of self defense, than to control criminals.
