The logic of gun control

2013-04-23 14:42

Guns as any dictionary will show are designed to launch a projectile. Like a bow, sling-shot, cannon or blowpipe is. What screams at anyone who reads gun control articles is the unjustified fear inflicted on all.  That is irresponsible of anyone who should be trying to educate or help people by at least conveying facts rather than regurgitating the unfounded rhetoric and propaganda of gun control.

Logic and common sense just flies out the window when guns are discussed. To be replaced by often repeated emotional slogans and gun controls favourite propaganda statements.

Then we have the most puzzling aspect of gun control. Guns are the only object on this earth with the power to control people and make them do something, so removing them will change peoples minds on what they want to do. Rehabilitate criminals and restore the mentally deranged.  Suicidal people will be instantly cured.  Murderes will stopped in the act and robbers will all find gainful employment.  How logical is that but when you believe gun control can work, logic does not matter.
