Good christ, but if that's what you call "freedom" I don't want any part of it.

2 million defensive gun uses in this country every year say that you ARE part of it, you just choose to remain oblivious. Just hope your number doesn't come up. If so your moral stand won't mean a hill of beans to the bad guy intent on doing you harm. You'll be at his mercy, and his alone.

Some of us can't pretend that these bad people aren't out there. I see reports of them every day. I move paperwork on them every day. I hear cops talking about them every day. I see them out on the streets after getting out of jail every day.

Sure, you're free to pretend that you're immune to all of this. You aren't free to tell the rest of us we are and legislate your myth (and subsequent irrational beliefs) onto us. I'll carry my gun, and won't feel a tad bit guilty about it.
