He says, "Oh, you've swallowed the 'gun free zone' meme of the right."

This is just logic and common sense. Criminals seek the greatest amount of return for the least amount of risk. If one is inclined to go out in a blaze of horrific glory, what better way to do so than max body count thru people's most prized relationships - their kids?

I know that asking libs to refute logic is a waste of time, but what else does one have? I do note that instead of offering a logical counter, he dismissed the argument out-of-hand.


He says England imposes a five year mandatory prison sentence for anyone caught with guns (loaded or unloaded) or ammunition (with or without a gun). As a result, "the gun homicide rate dropped considerably since 1998," the year the ban went into effect.

I don't know where he gets his statistics. This is part of the problem, I think. Accurate and unbiased statistics and nothing less will inform responsible legislation about gun control.



Same place every libs gets their facts - out of their backside.
