Uprooting the "Weapons Effect" propaganda for "gun control"

The federal government has assumed the power to shoot down any civilian aircraft that seems to pose a threat to public safety -- and thus to kill perhaps hundreds of civilians on a suspicion of terrorism. The same government forbids passengers and others from lawfully carrying defensive sidearms aboard aircraft -- because of the fear of accidental shootings -- when armed passengers and crew could deter and prevent terrorist hijackings.

Learn how those bizarre contradictory ideas -- now infecting Washington policy wonks -- make sense to those people who believe the "weapons effect" propaganda.

After you read that article, read Dr. Sarah Thompson's piece, "Raging Against Self-Defense," at:

For an easy-reading comic-style presentation of Dr. Thompson's key points, get the booklet entitled: "Do Gun Prohibitionists Have A Mental Problem?" click on:
