So if we're talking about 0.1% (or less) of citizens, we're talking about the fringe elements who are going to do what they're going to do regardless. Your solution is to punish everyone else.He's holding pro-gun results up to some perfect world, ignoring that in the real world a lot of people are killed when they're disarmed. As the saying goes God made men, Col. Colt made men equal. How else can an elderly, disabled woman fend off even one young thug intent on doing her harm?That isn't hyperbole. Just look up the Strait case in Tulsa recently. A 90-year-old WWII 101st Airborn vet and his 85-year-old wife were attacked by a couple thugs in their own home. The only one with a gun was one of the thugs, a BB gun. The result? The husband shot in the face and clinging to life, the wife raped and beaten to death. Is that the kind of "perfection" we want in an disarmed world?!? I hope not, and that's why I continue to support concealed carry, eliminating firearms registration, Castle Doctrine and/or Stand Your Ground, all of it.I live in the real world, not on paper.
