If guns are bad, how come:
All high politicians – including Dear Leader and Gauleiter Bloomberg – are surrounded by heavily armed guards?
There is never a mass shooting at a police station?
There is virtually no “gun crime” in Switzerland, even though the Swiss are armed to the teeth, with full-auto military combat rifles in the hands of nearly every adult male between the ages of 18 and 45?
Guns save so many lives each year – including most recently the lives of numerous potential victims of a mass shooting in Oregon at the Clackamas Town Center Mall, where concealed carry permit holder Nick Meli confronted armed killer Jacob Tyler Roberts – who had already shot two people dead … and prevented him from shooting more people dead?
Concealed carry permit holders are less likely to be involved in an unjustified (non-defensive) shooting than a cop?
The Obama administration “walked” 2,000 high-powered rifles to Mexican drug cartels?
Some advocates of “sensible” gun control argue that no one needs – take your pick – a semi-automatic pistol or rifle (which means virtually all pistols and rifles that aren’t single-shot Derringers and bolt-action rifles) or a “high capacity” magazine or a weapon over a certain caliber or which has a certain “threatening” (to some) appearance – even if its function is identical to a rifle with a “less menacing” appearance.
