Yeah, they are ridiculous. But they are supposed to be. I can take that.
NM, I read the 3 page piece from the kind, mild, worldly, reasonable individual from ABC. My question is what is the true cost of gun ownership? I know what I think he means. And why do American fear so much? His words not mine. That is what my sister asked me rather pointedly when she found I was carrying on a daily basis. Nothing when I'm carrying I told her.
Do you suppose they were as friendly when Jack the Ripper was tearing up London? The whole British Isles are about the size of New England and they have 4 distinct groups that have fought for centuries. They still are fighting actually.
It was a feel good piece describing the miniscule odds of being in a situation requiring a gun. But it is like winning the lottery, someone is going to need that gun. And he refuses to acknowledge the times they are used to diffuse a situation and not reported or outright protect someone. He is after all working for the MSM. he did not want to get into statistics, just that we should all become kinder and accept our fate if/when the wolf comes to the door. For the benefit of the larger society, just let the wolf have his.
BAAAAAAAAA! I'll keep mine thanks.
I am sure it has been mentioned here somewhere. But can you imagine the Black Market that will spring up and the criminalization of more people? And the boost to drug gangs and other groups who will profit from this and then we have to spend more money on incarceration and enforcement? What is that the cost of no gun ownership by Gov. breaking the Constitution?
