...this is one of my biggest gripes about wading into fact- and data-laden poo-flinging arguments with anti-gunners about crime rates and murders-per-100k and so forth. The correct answer is "Where the hell do you get off thinking you can tell me I can't own a gun? I don't care if every other gun owner on the planet went out and murdered somebody last night. I didn't. So piss off."Bravo.
Sometimes I think we try too hard. We really DO have all of the facts, figures, and statistics to back up our side on the gun issue. More powerfully though, we have THE RIGHT to own, carry, and use our guns; and more importantly, we have the RIGHT whether codified in the law or not.
Because we have the right to life, and the right to defend that life, period.
