Re: A very thought out opinion on gun control.
Hello everyone,

The other day, a friend of mine from New York stumbled upon a pro-gun article titled "An opinion on gun control."

Being from a Blue State, he naturally questioned why people (AKA guntards) defend guns as much as they do. We have had discussions before about guns, gun control, and possible legislation being pushed. I imagine this is what led him to do some searching for an understanding of the pro-gun community.

Note that this article is rather long; but it is very, very thought out. After finding and reading this article my friend came to me and stated that he understood why guns are defended, and admitted he believes to have switched opinions on guns and gun control.

Please read and share this, I feel this is very important.
Let me know what you think!

Note: No, I will not paraphrase for you. If you are too lazy to at least skim over the main points, you are merely hindering your own ability to aquire the knowledge... AKA Ignorant. This article is very informative, and I would encourage everyone regardless of "side" to obtain this information for themselves.

EDIT:
Again, PLEASE SHARE THIS with everyone you can.

I skimmed your article and disagree.

Every other western country has strict gun bans, and in those countries gun homicides are nowhere near the level they are in the US.

It is true that guns will always be obtainable through illegal avenues (And this is why pistols should remain legal as a means of self defense). However, banning most guns keeps many would-be shooters (those with no criminal history and no knowledge of how to obtain an illegal gun) teetering on the fence away from them.

There seems to be a correlation betwern gun bans and low gun-related homicides.

A crazy person is somebody who does the same thing over and over expecting different results. Throwing guns at gun violence ain't gonna solve it.

Except the area I reside in has a very very low concentration of flouridated water. Not to mention most in my area drink spring water from one of the 5+ springs relatively close. My reply was based solely off of observations of people in my area. Sorry for not clarifying.

Edit: Not that any of this matters, the topic at hand is gun control and the propoganda being spread. Thanks for your reply.

Re: A very thought out opinion on gun control.
I am the "Blue State Friend" mentioned by the OP. While I was previously very much for gun control Correia's blog post forced me to contend with a lot of my long held beliefs, so I find myself leaning on the pro gun side. I don't think there is a "one size fits all" solution to this issue. And, there are also demographic challenges to consider. I am not sure that the inner cities, especially the densely populated areas on the coasts, benefit from rural America's more lax gun policies.

I definitely think that emotionally charged public policy is the wrong way to go.

Larry touches on this briefly, the mental health issue. I think that is more to "blame" for these recent string of tragedies than guns are.
