We in Britain believe guns are so dangerous that only criminals should be allowed to have them. If you think this sounds unhinged, you are quite right. But, crazed as it is, such is the thinking behind this country's current law on firearms.There are some [expletive deleted] individuals who want to repeal the recently passed concealed carry law here in Minnesota. Unfortunately, when I see one of their bumper stickers I'm usually doing a pizza delivery and thus unable to perform the appropriate visual gestures.
It is almost impossible for a law-abiding person to obtain or keep a gun, thanks to severe laws diligently enforced by a stern police force. Yet criminals, who care nothing for laws, can and do easily obtain guns and ammunition - which they use with increasing frequency.
Our first question to these persons, or anyone else who is attempting to enact legislation to disarm us should be, "are you planning to mug someone?" Or alternately, "are you planning to murder someone?"
If they object to this form of response to their irrational beliefs, point out to them that they are the ones who are calling for violence against innocent people and that they are the ones who are attempting to use the power of government against the very people whose rights it was established to uphold and protect.
And if they call you, or gun owners in general, nazis, then feel free to introduce them to some fellows from Milwaukee who will be happy to disabuse them of that notion.
