Firearms Refresher Course: A Sane Answer to the NRA.

1.       NRA: An armed man is a Citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

Answer: A citizen is a man who holds rights and fulfills responsibilities; a man who holds a gun is nothing more than that: a man who holds a gun.

2.       NRA: What part of “shall not be infringed” do you not understand?

Answer: What part of “well REGULATED” do you not understand?

3.       NRA: 64,999,987 gun owners killed no one yesterday.

Answer: 60% of murders and 30% of accidental deaths were gun related yesterday.

4.       NRA: The American Revolution would never have happened with gun control.

Answer: Wrong. The American Revolution would have never happened without courageous men who persuaded others with their ideas, not their guns.

5.       NRA: You only have rights you are willing to fight for.

Answer: The rights we have were earned by Americans fighting for them with courage and moral force, not the false power of lethal force.

    I find it disgusting how America demonizes sex more than violence. Case in point, it seems that in a lot of areas it’s much easier to get a gun than to get porn. How about that woman who got caught in a sting operation in Alabama for selling sex toys? Or how about how easily the Columbine kids got there guns.

    I grew up in Pennsylvania and moved to NYC (to go to college) in Fall 1999. When I was getting ready to go, people were suggesting that I take a gun with me. I said, “Why the hell would I want to do that? What do I need a gun for?” Oh… right! PROTECTION! I like Michael Moore’s Bowling for Columbine about gun control and the episode of The Simpsons which also addressed that issue quite well.
