Ready, Aim...the Gun Control Debate Fires Up

Here is another article I wrote for the Red Dirt Report about the gun control debate.

Here are some excerpts:

"......Despite what these people might think, guns are not bad. People that use guns for malicious are bad.........Contrary to what seems to be a popular belief, guns are not the only way a person can kill another human being...............Getting rid of the guns in this country will not put an end to violent crime any more than getting rid of alcohol in the 20s and 30s put an end to people drinking..............."

  1. So let me ask a question, and let me preface by saying that I am pro-2nd Amendment and generally feel that there are more than enough gun laws on the books but in light of recent events some questions need to be asked. For instance, does a citizen really have a need for military grade assault weapons? Also should people be able to buy copious amounts of ammunition online with no regulation?

  2. My answer is yes because the same argument applies.

    The guns themselves, military grade or not, are still inanimate objects and thus can not be bad or good. Nor the ammunition.

    A rock is an inanimate object but in the hands of a person with evil intentions can be a deadly weapon.

    Murder was around and rampant in the world long before guns were invented and regulating guns or ammo is not going to change that.

  3. Interesting. I'm honestly not sure how I feel about assault weapons. Really what I want to know is why someone would want them.
