the more helpless (unarmed) you are the safer you are from criminals.
Washington DC's murder rate of 69 per 100,000 is due to gun control and
Indianapolis' murder rate of 9 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun
"NYPD Blue" and "Miami Vice" are documentaries.
an intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot
with a .44 Magnum will get angry and kill you.
firearms in the hands of private citizens is the gravest threat to world
peace but India, Pakistan and Korea can be trusted with nuclear weapons.
Charlton Heston as president of the NRA is a shill who should be ignored,
but Michael Douglas as a representative of Handgun Control, Inc. is an
ambassador for peace who is entitled to an audience at the UN arms control
ordinary people in the presence of guns, turn into slaughtering butchers,
but will then calmly revert to normal when the weapon is removed.
the New England Journal of Medicine is filled with expert advice about guns,
just like Guns and Ammo has some excellent treatises on heart surgery.
one should consult an automotive engineer for safer seatbelts, a civil
engineer for a better bridge, a surgeon for spinal paralysis, a computer
programmer for Y2K problems, and Sarah Brady for firearms expertise.
the "right of the people peaceably to assemble," the "right
of the people to be secure in their homes," "enumeration's herein
of certain rights shall not be construed to disparage others retained by the
people," "The powers not delegated herein are reserved to the

"the right of the people to keep and bear arms" refers to the
the 2nd Amendment, ratified in 1787, was designed to allow the states to
have a National Guard, which was created by act of Congress 130 years later
- in 1917.
the National Guard, paid by the federal government, occupying property
leased to the federal government, using weapons owned by the federal
government, punishing trespassers under federal law, is a state agency.
private citizens can't have handguns, because they serve no militia purpose,
even though the military has hundreds of thousands of them, and private
citizens can't have assault rifles, because they are military weapons.
it is reasonable for California to have a minimum 2 year sentence for
possessing but not using an assault rifle, and reasonable for California to
have a 6 month minimum sentence for raping a female police officer.
it is reasonable to jail people for carrying but not using guns, but
outrageous to jail people for possessing marijuana.
minimum sentences violate civil rights, unless it's for possessing a gun.
door-to-door searches for drugs are a gross violation of civil rights and a
sign of fascism, but door-to-door searches for guns are a reasonable
solution to the "gun problem."
the first amendment absolutely allows child pornography and threats to kill
cops, but doesn't apply to manuals on gun repair.
Illinois' law that allows any government official from Governor to
dogcatcher to carry a gun is reasonable, and the law that prohibits any
private citizen, even one with 50 death threats on file and a million-dollar
business, is reasonable. And it isn't a sign of police stateism.
free speech entitles one to own newspapers, transmitters, computers, and
typewriters, but self-defense only justifies bare hands.
gun safety courses in school only encourage kids to commit violence, but
“safe sex” education in school doesn't encourage kids to have sex.
the ready availability of guns today is responsible for all the school
shootings, but the “awkward availability” in the 1950's and 1960's was
responsible for the lack of school shootings. (Today, there are 22,000 laws
dealing with gun restrictions, only a few government forms, waiting periods,
checks, infringements, ID requirements, and fingerprinting, while
before 1968, guns could be sold at any hardware store, gas station,
and by mail order.)
we must get rid of guns because a deranged lunatic may go on a shooting
spree at any time and anyone who owns a gun out of fear of such a lunatic is
there is too much explicit violence featuring guns on TV, and that cities
can sue gun manufacturers because people aren't aware of the dangers
involved with guns.
the gun lobby's attempt to run a "don't touch" campaign about kids
handling guns is propaganda, and the anti-gun lobby's attempt to run a
"don't touch" campaign is responsible social activity.
the crime rate in America is decreasing because of gun control and the
increase in crime requires more gun control.
100 years after its founding, the NRA got into the politics of guns from
purely selfish motives, and 100 years after the Emancipation Proclamation,
the black civil rights movement was founded from purely noble motives.
statistics showing high murder rates justify gun control, and statistics
that show increasing murder rates after gun control are "just
we don't need guns against an oppressive government, because the US
Constitution has internal safeguards, and we should ban and seize all guns,
therefore violating the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Amendments of that Constitution,
thereby becoming an oppressive government.
guns are an ineffective means of self defense for rational adults, but in
the hands of an ignorant criminal become a threat to the fabric of society.
guns are so complex to use that special training is necessary to use them
properly, and so simple to use that they make murder easy.
guns cause crime, which is why there are so many mass slayings at gun shows.
guns aren't necessary to national defense, which is why the army only has 3
million of them.
banning guns works, which is why New York, DC, and Chicago cops need guns.
the Constitution protects us, so we don't need guns, and can confiscate
them, thereby violating the 5th amendment of that constitution.
women are just as intelligent and capable as men but a woman with a gun is
"an accident waiting to happen."

most people will abide by, because they can be trusted.
a woman raped and strangled with her panties is morally superior to a woman
with a smoking gun and a dead rapist at her feet.
guns should be banned because of the danger involved, and live reporting
from the battlefield, which can keep the enemy informed of troop
deployments, getting thousands of troops killed and perhaps losing a war, is
a protected act that CANNOT be compromised on.
the right of online child pornographers to exist cannot be questioned
because it is a constitutionally protected extension of the Bill of Rights,
and the claim that handguns are for self defense is merely an excuse, and
not really protected by the Bill of Rights.
the ACLU is good because it uncompromisingly defends certain parts of the
Constitution, but the NRA is bad, because it defends other parts of the
police operate in groups with backup, which is why they need larger capacity
magazines than civilians, who must face criminals alone, and therefore need
we should ban "Saturday Night Specials" and other inexpensive guns
because it's not fair that poor people have access to guns too.
guns have no legitimate use, but alcohol does, which is why we issue cops
beer instead of guns.
That police and soldiers are the dregs of society who were unfit to get any real job, which perfectly qualifies them with the high moral standards and keen intellects to handle these complicated tools and be our guardians.
