    "You know what really grinds my gears?"

    I can't stand how the anti-gun reporters jump on the fact that the UK (or wherever) has less gun crime but ignore the higher overall violent crime rate. Of course fewer guns in circulation would result in less gun use in crimes. But, history has shown us that the overall rate of violent crime (gun related or not) goes UP everywhere guns are banned.

    The thug who wants to mug me may be less likely to have a gun, but he KNOWS I won't have one. So he's emboldened to use a knife or a pointy stick with dog poo on the end as his weapon of choice.

    Dammit.

    All anti editorial crap follows the same format. Lies, then twist the truth, lies some more, some fake stats (lies again) and then plenty more BS.

    The responses were great. Much more reasonable & intelligent than the author of the article. Nice that there (at least as far as the copy of the post went) weren't any "silly" pro-gun posts. The kind of responses given to this guy make us look very good.
