I favor taking the guns away from the bad guys.
Sounds like ROBBERY!
Is there jurisdiction for that??
If a bad guy is on his way to the corner
to get a sandwich and he is set upon by a pack of dogs,
does he have the right of self-defense,
or was forfeiture thereof a tacit, secret part of his sentence, Jack ?
You favor putting guns in the hands of the bad guys.
No. Thay will attend to that, themselves,
as thay always have. Thay need no help and thay will do so,
of the state of the law or the law of the state.
Guns were hand-made, long before electric tools existed
or engineering plans were available for modern guns.
REMOVAL from America
of violently felonious recidivists can reduce misconduct.
Crime comes from bad people, not from tools
Should umbrellas be blamed for rain? pens for forgery? spoons for obesity?
The Repressionists want to disarm citizens, saying that guns
are sometimes used to facilitate crime. They fail to understand
that the actual weapon is the HUMAN MIND
, whose cleverness
has not been controlled nor restrained (even in prison).
This mind expresses itself perseveringly, into the manifestation
of its felt needs or desires, and it has FOREVER
to do the job
that it selects (e.g., the art of the gunsmith/gun merchant).
In the 1920s, it was pervasively proven by citizens privately making bathtub gin,
or using Speakeasys (and is proven now by marijuana users) that Prohibition is futile
