    Larry Correia refutes the gun controllers once and for all...

    This is a long read but well worth it. It pretty much covers it all. Educate yourselves and understand it.

    I didnít want to post about this, because frankly, it is exhausting. Iíve been having this exact same argument for my entire adult life. It is not an exaggeration when I say that I know pretty much exactly every single thing an anti-gun person can say. Iíve heard it over and over, the same old tired stuff, trotted out every single time there is a tragedy on the news that can be milked. Yet, I got sucked in, and Iíve spent the last few days arguing with people who either mean well but are uninformed about gun laws and how guns actually work (who I donít mind at all), or the willfully ignorant (who I do mind), or the obnoxiously stupid who are completely incapable of any critical thinking deeper than a Facebook meme (them, I canít stand).

    A long read but excellent. Thanks for posting. More people need to read articles like this. Oh I forgot. The anti gun people cant read the truth. All they can do is look at pictures of scary gun features and run.

    This was a great read for someone like myself, who despite having been around firearms and using them for years, only recently decided to carry. It really cements the reasons -why- I decided to carry in the first place, as well as providing valuable information from a truly experienced source.

    Things like this reinforce my decision to carry, and buoy my own modest efforts to support the 2A with regular communications to my legislatures. I've since passed it around to several people. Many of the people I've focused getting it to are highly intelligent, but skeptical of firearms. One of them even owns one, but believes in severely restricted ownership and rights, and is completely against schools having any armed staff.

    As I told him, and as exactly worded to my reps, the only people who can mitigate or stop a threat to a school or public place are the people already there, having someone with far more real world experience saying it too may help change their opinions.

    Because in the end that's what I hope can come from things like that article. You can't fix the willingly ignorant, but the uninformed, or those affected by media sensationalisim, or those with the intelligence but not the knowledge...they all have the potential to be brought into this more mature understanding of firearms and protection, and if they are, then the willfully ignorant can continue to be led by the more informed.

    If you haven't read Larry's fiction, I highly recommend it. It's evident he's a fan of firearms and his spin on the supernatural is very entertaining (Cor-Bon "Pow'R Ball" with a pure silver ball to hunt werewolves).
