What? Are lower crime rates not appealing to gun owners?
The U.S should be no.1 in the world for the lowest amount of crime. That's not going to happen when any loon can buy a gun.
See, you and your liberal ilk are dangers to liberty and freedom!
If the US would simply enforce the EXISTING gun laws, then not "Any loon"
could buy a gun. Understand that?
Also, if the the liberals wouldn't regulate freedom out of existence and demand everyone be subservient to a nanny state, then the citizens wouldn't
be so easily victimized by loons!
Let's dive deeper and dissect your fallacious liberal premise - that low crime rates don't appeal to gun owners. Followed by your equally flawed
support statement that the US should be no. 1 in the world for the lowest amount of crime.
For starters, the majority of gun owners ARE law-abiding. Shocking, I realize, because it flies in the face of what you want it to be. But it is
true, gun owners are some of the most law-abiding citizens in this country. Mostly because most gun owners understand and respect freedom, liberty
and the Bill of Rights.
Next, your supposition that the US should have the lowest crime rate... why? Why should they? Because you said so? What evidence do you have to
support such a foolish contention?
You realize that our police, fire and paramendics are called RESPONDERS, right? They respond AFTER a crime has been comitted. It is not the
government's job to protect you - you DO know that, right? It is YOUR job to protect yourself. Freedom loving, law abiding Americans know this and
this is why we cherish our right to bear arms and the right to protect ourselves.
