Gun Control

"Guns don't kill people; people kill people" is more true than gun control advocates
admit. Look at the number of murders committed each year without guns. Stabbing
deaths occur as often as gun deaths in this area and elsewhere. Would those who favor
gun control also call for knife control?
Do you think persons intent on murder are not imaginative enough to kill without guns or
knives? I recall the 1982 murder of a woman with a sledgehammer by her estranged
husband at a nearby shopping center. Watch how quickly the art of poisoning returns
should other weapons be outlawed.
Prejudice Against Guns
Face it: People who want government enforced gun control are prejudiced against guns
and gun owners. Having already made up their minds that guns are inherently evil, they
reject facts to the contrary. They forget that ordinary citizens own guns primarily for
hunting, target shooting, and as collectibles, as well as for self-defense.
Worse than being prejudiced, those wanting laws to control gun ownership are
dangerous! For the doubtful possibility of saving some innocent lives, they would deny
ordinary citizens their right to keep and bear arms. These are the same people who would
use the force of government to deny you other human rights as well, which do not fit
their ideas about society. That is anti-liberal!
