6/23/2012: Anchorage man shot and killed, another man injured

We don’t yet know if these two shootings were related, but we do know that if guns were not available to these people, it’s less likely we’d be talking about another dead human being.  When people who are not the well-regulated militia (the National Guard) do not have guns, and they have to fight using lesser methods, they tend to make better decisions about fighting.  Since hand-to-hand combat requires closer contact, the likelihood of being hurt goes up, and that’s why guns were invented.  Guns allow people to hurt other things without being hurt themselves.  Fists as a weapon are a less desirable choice for the fight itself, but they’re a much preferable choice for a society that doesn’t enjoy reading about murder and crime.
