Yea, and every other decent law abiding person is considered a criminal for even thinking about shooting back at the varmints prowling the streets. The politicians spew their drivel about 'stopping the madness', 'halting the violence' 'getting those evil guns off the streets' blah blah blah. Yep, and only people who abide by their stupid laws on firearms ownership end up paying the tab. Hamstrung by laws that favor criminals, hand wringing dweebs crying about non violent solutions, and the fear of prosecution if they take responsibility for their own safety, they end up food for predators. Sounds like a GREAT plan.

Just like people that have the misconception that passing a law against something, will eliminate it. the same is true with gun ownership. Honest Citizens don't use their firearms to commit crimes. And crooks don't buy their guns through legal means. so the whole exercise is pointless. During a gun prohibition, only Honest Citizens will suffer, and have their guns taken. Crooks will keep theirs, since they have no record of ownership.---class, this is all so simple.

It is brutally simple. So simple, in fact, that it flies right over the heads of so many, who profess to be 'intellectuals'. Amazing..............

Some times over thinking things can get in the way of common sense. trust yer instincts. If, over a period of time, they prove to be undependable, find someone to follow.
