how to counter this anti-gun argument?
As a result of the Virginia Tech shootings, I've been in a discussion with my very anti-gun sister. She wants all guns abolished in the US. I made the point that if all guns were removed from the US, then criminals would use axes. If axes were gone, then criminals would use knives. If knives were gone, they'd use bats, etc...
An argument she made against this goes something like this:
"An unarmed person is much more able to defend themselves against an ax than a gun. A gun can be used to kill multiple people from 50 feet away in a short amount of time. But an ax must be used up close and people have time to react and either stop the threat or run away. Yada, yada, yada..."
While I disagree with her, I'm not sure how to respond to this argument. Can could someone please help me out? Thanks.
Make A Different Point...
Then only the criminals would have guns...
