Why is it that when criminals use guns in the commission of crimes, people want to take guns away from law abiding citizens who didn’t do anything wrong?
90 million gun owners with over 300 million guns in this country KILLED NO ONE LAST YEAR. In fact over two million innocent people used guns to save lives. In most of those cases, the gun owner simply had to pull a gun to stop an attacker, never having to pull the trigger. If you take guns away from law abiding citizens, you remove their ability to defend themselves and their property. Criminals do not abide by gun control laws, so criminals remain armed in a population of people who are unarmed. It is a criminal’s paradise. Homes and people are easy targets. Sorry but not this person and not my home. I'm not going to live in fear of what might happen or what nut job might be armed. Their arguments remind me of being a kid and "calling" something. "Guns are for criminals" "Only criminals have guns" "If someone attacks me then that is what was supposed to happen, it was my time". I refuse to let a criminal "call" my life or my belongings. Why should he/she get a choice and I don't? Please tell me in what universe that logic makes sense.
In the spirit of Cedric the Entertainer, you can live by the Hope Creed. Me, myself personally I live by the Wish factor. Me and my daughter will be like the mother in Alabama who shot the name who broke into her home and had the audacity to try to come up the stairs while looking at her and her knife and axe wielding daughters. Sir we don't want to have to hurt you, but we wish you would come up those stairs. The police even said they would be writing up a much different report if she hadn't been armed. Like my mom always said, it's better than to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. #imjussayin
