Somebody else who "Gets it."

This is a discussion on Somebody else who "Gets it." within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Found this one while poking around on FreeRepublic.com a few minutes ago. We can limit gun violence by empowering responsible citizens to defend themselves...

    I think his analogy with the internet was good. I plan on using that next time I encounter an anti-gunner.

    All well made points we here know so well.

    I agree on that internet analogy - that's simple but a good one.

    I liked the following sentence:

    "We cannot ban mechanical objects and expect twisted human beings to cleanse evil from their souls suddenly."

    That is so true! Similarily, if we ban matches we will not prevent arson...

    When I read that line, I felt the same thing. Look at the UK and how their crime rate has soared now that honest citizens cannot own firearms. It is like leaving a dog to guard the hamburger!
