This is going to be a short piece to talk about the intelligence of gun control. Now, there’s an oxymoron for you. Yesterday it was reported that Chicago police reported that there were 90 homicides in August, yes, last month. Well, that’s not so bad considering that there were 472 shooting victims for the same period. You can read the news story here.
Are you kidding me? How can it be that the city with some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country can have 472 people shot in just one month? It is unbelievable that there could be that many bad-guy guns on the street because everyone knows that everyone is law abiding and will use their guns responsibly. (Excuse me while I pull my tongue out of my cheek)
Logic says that when the good guys are armed there is much less chance of them being assaulted. While bad guys are typically not in competition to be valedictorians, they normally are smart enough to figure out that if their intended victim is carrying a concealed handgun, there is a greater likelihood of getting shot. I don’t care if it is a .22 or a .458, no one wants to get shot; it just wrecks your day.
How prepared are you to defend yourself and your family? Just having a gun isn’t enough. Just like owning a car isn’t enough. If you don’t know how to drive it becomes a hazard to yourself and everyone around you. A gun is the same, just owning it isn’t enough. Get trained, get prepared.
