Again, where is the more polite society? Guns don’t kill people, except when they do, and they make crime easier to commit. We need to melt them all.
Guns make robbery easier. Got a gun? It won’t help you. It will make things worse. I’m glad the Subway restaurant in this story did not have a gun. Now, what part of an armed society makes for a more polite society again?
Why would an intelligent person own a gun? They’re just not that helpful. Now this person is dead. It will be interesting to see if we’ve learned anything from this unfortunate incident, or Newtown, or any other gun use by the “well regulated militia” that isn’t.
Criminals love guns. It makes their job easier. That gun you might own? If you’re a responsible gun owner, you’ll have it locked up, ammo stored separately, so it’s almost impossible for you to ever get to it if you needed it. AND, your gun is a nice little score for a criminal, so it can actually ATTRACT them. See how you’ve made society worse by choosing to own a gun? See story. Yay guns!
Of course, a society armed with firearms isn’t more polite, it is less polite. This is just another example of gun owners making life worse, not better.
Guns sure made this situation better, didn’t they, Mr. LaPierre?
He was shot by someone using a firearm that the NRA fought to get him. He was shot, because the owner of the firearm knows that shooting someone is a lot safer for them than close, physical contact. Guns make crime easier to commit.
Oh, but this wouldn’t have happened if the guy who got shot had a gun, because having more people with guns so clearly results in fewer people getting shot. Clearly.
But before this happened, the NRA told us that this man has the “right” to own a weapon. I guess we can be thankful that he was too drunk to do much once he broke into the home, where he ended up laying on the floor with a homeowner’s firearm trained on him. Yay, more guns. We’re lucky a shootout was avoided this time.
Let’s not forget that gun owners support the ownership of guns. This is what happens when guns are available in a society. This is not better than this not happening at all.
