I found this over on GT. The link doesn't work, but I thought I would share.
The link doesn't work because it's an abbreviated link (see the '...'?). Go to the original posting on GT and right click and copy the whole link or just click on the link and copy/paste the link from the browser window instead of the post.
Good article, by the way.
My response to Keith Burris on this article:
Mostly liberal and socialist anti-gun zealots do not understand the difference between a firearm and a criminal. The natural, individual right, which predates the U.S. and all 50 state constitutions guarantees us the ability to keep and bear arms. Some of these zealots are hypocrites to boot, trying to avoid, change or ignore the 2nd and 14th amendments. One from California, a female, who will go nameless here, HAS a carry permit, yet would like to take away all our handguns. She has government protection and/or personal protection, and therefore is not totally stupid. She recognizes the need for self-defense and the defense of her family against harm. The hypocrisy is to carry and deny all other law-abiding citizens the same right. Our nation was done a disservice when in Katrina, homeowners were stripped of their firearms, just at a time when they really needed them. Our forefathers and framers of the constitution were not stupid when it came to personal freedom and responsibility. I am NOT so sure of our elitist, liberal and more socialist members of Congress and the current top democratic candidate for President. I would like to have the leading candidates on both sides try to explain WHY violent crime is going DOWN in the 40+ states that have firearm carry laws, but is inordinately high in D.C., New York, Chicago, and other cities where citizens have been denied their 2nd amendment rights. Even the elitist group of the National Academy who did their retrospective gun study failed to explain just why gun control did not correlate with crime reduction. Could it be that the idiots simply took the guns away from most law-abiding citizens, and the criminals kept theirs? They did not really believe or trust their own mountain of evidence. It is interesting that the main concern of the framers of the U.S. Constitution was the tyranny of government over the citizens. So, with apologies to Pogo, I have met the enemy and he is US.
