1. Banning guns works, which is why New York, DC, & Chicago cops need guns.

2. Washington DC's low murder rate of 69 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control, and Indianapolis' high murder rate of 9 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun control.

3. Statistics showing high murder rates justify gun control but statistics showing increasing murder rates after gun control are "just statistics."

4. The Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban, both of which went into effect in 1994 are responsible for the decrease in violent crime rates, which have been declining since 1991.

5. We must get rid of guns because a deranged lunatic may go on a shooting spree at any time and anyone who would own a gun out of fear of such a lunatic is paranoid.

6. The more helpless you are the safer you are from criminals.

7. An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.

8. A woman raped and strangled is morally superior to a woman with a smoking gun and a dead rapist at her feet.

9. When confronted by violent criminals, you should "put up no defense- give them what they want, or run" (Handgun Control Inc. Chairman Pete Shields, Guns Don't Die - People Do, 1981, p.125).

10. The New England Journal of Medicine is filled with expert advice about guns; just like Guns & Ammo has some excellent treatises on heart surgery.

11. One should consult an automotive engineer for safer seatbelts, a civil engineer for a better bridge, a surgeon for internal medicine, a computer programmer for hard drive problems, and Sarah Brady for firearms expertise.

12. The 2nd Amendment, ratified in 1787, refers to the National Guard, which was created 130 years later, in 1917.

13. The National Guard, federally funded, with bases on federal land, using federally-owned weapons vehicles buildings and uniforms, punishing trespassers under federal law, is a "state" militia.

14. These phrases: "right of the people peaceably to assemble," "right of the people to be secure in their homes," "enumerations herein of certain rights shall not be construed to disparage others retained by the people," and "The powers not delegated herein are reserved to the states respectively, and to the people" all refer to individuals, but "the right of the people to keep and bear arm" refers to the state.

15. "The Constitution is strong and will never change." But we should ban and seize all guns thereby violating the 2nd, 4th, and 5thAmendments to that Constitution.

16. Rifles and handguns aren't necessary to national defense! Of course, the army has hundreds of thousands of them.

17. Private citizens shouldn't have handguns, because they aren't "military weapons", but private citizens shouldn't have "assault rifles", because they are military weapons.

18. In spite of waiting periods, background checks, finger printing, government forms, etc., guns today are too readily available, which is responsible for recent school shootings. In the 1940's, 1950's and1960's, anyone could buy guns at hardware stores, army surplus stores, gas stations, variety stores, Sears mail order, no waiting, no background check, no fingerprints, no government forms and there were no school shootings.

19. The NRA's attempt to run a "don't touch" campaign about kids handling guns is propaganda, but the anti-gun lobby's attempt to run a "don't touch" campaign is responsible social activity.

20. Guns are so complex that special training is necessary to use them properly, and so simple to use that they make murder easy.

21. A handgun, with up to 4 controls, is far too complex for the typical adult to learn to use, as opposed to an automobile that only has 20.

22. Women are just as intelligent and capable as men but a woman with a gun is "an accident waiting to happen" and gun makers' advertisements aimed at women are "preying on their fears."

23. Ordinary people in the presence of guns turn into slaughtering butchers but revert to normal when the weapon is removed.

24. Guns cause violence, which is why there are so many mass killings at gun shows.

25. A majority of the population supports gun control, just like a majority of the population supported owning slaves.

26. Any self-loading small arm can legitimately be considered to be a "weapon of mass destruction" or an "assault weapon."

27. Most people can't be trusted, so we should have laws against guns, which most people will abide by because they can be trusted.

28. The right of Internet pornographers to exist cannot be questioned because it is constitutionally protected by the Bill of Rights, but the use of handguns for self defense is not really protected by the Bill of Rights.

29. Free speech entitles one to own newspapers, transmitters, computers, and typewriters, but self-defense only justifies bare hands.

30. The ACLU is good because it uncompromisingly defends certain parts of the Constitution, and the NRA is bad, because it defends other parts of the Constitution.

31. Charlton Heston, a movie actor as president of the NRA is a cheap lunatic who should be ignored, but Michael Douglas, a movie actor as a representative of Handgun Control, Inc. is an ambassador for peace who is entitled to an audience at the UN arms control summit.

32. Police operate with backup within groups, which is why they need larger capacity pistol magazines than do "civilians" who must face criminals alone and therefore need less ammunition.

33. We should ban "Saturday Night Specials" and other inexpensive guns because it's not fair that poor people have access to guns too.

34. Police officers have some special Jedi-like mastery over hand guns that private citizens can never hope to obtain.

35. Private citizens don't need a gun for self-protection because the police are there to protect them even though the Supreme Court says the police are not responsible for their protection.

36. Citizens don't need to carry a gun for personal protection but police chiefs, who are desk-bound administrators who work in a building filled with cops, need a gun.

37. "Assault weapons" have no purpose other than to kill large numbers of people. The police need assault weapons. You do not.

38. When Microsoft pressures its distributors to give Microsoft preferential promotion, that's bad; but when the Federal government pressures cities to buy guns only from Smith & Wesson, that's good.

39. Trigger locks do not interfere with the ability to use a gun for defensive purposes, which is why you see police officers with one on their duty weapon.

40. Handgun Control, Inc. says they want to "keep guns out of the wrong hands." Guess what? You have the wrong hands.

Significant portions of this article are excerpted from Michael Z. Williamson's excellent and witty piece, "It's amazing what one has to believe to believe in gun control" Our thanks go to Michael for his insightful contribution to the gun control debate.

What happens when you are driving alone and a car cuts you off, with another behind, - three or four BGs in each car. They want your car - or worse ! ( If this seems an "exaggerated" situation for the USA - then I'm sorry, but it sure is common here in Brazil.)

Many would have us insure our cars and just give in quietly. This has very often resulted in death anyway, - the subject took too long getting out the car, he reached to undo the seatbelt ( mistakenly reaching for a gun ) etc etc.

There have been numerous cases of residences being invaded, where the family "greeted" the BGs with "take everything but please don't hurt us". The BGs took everything, - including the virginity of any young daughter and the lives of all !

The age when a civilian only needed to defend his/her-self against one or two "punks"at an ATM machine have long gone.

In my "humble" opinion, today the civilian may need to be even better trained and armed than the cop ( cops are civilians too - off-duty) for reasons allready stated on this thread - lack of backup ( perhaps allready on the way ) etc.

To those who would say that in a situation above ( the carjacking/kidknapping - whatever ) the person who reacts will probably die because he/she's SO outnumbered, I ask:

Would you rather be killed taking a few with you, or "kneeling" on the ground with a shot in the back of your head ( a common practice here when off-duty cops or armed civilians are "found" during armed robberies ) ?


How many people fear that if they are 'made' [carrying a gun] by criminals...they will be the first to die?

I fear being killed because dead witnesses don't testify! The victim always represents a threat to the criminal and some criminals will seek to solve that problem. That is precisely why we need to carry!

"Do you know hoe to use that?"
"Yes pointy end goes in the other man"~ José Antonio Domínguez Banderas

When I teach or train disarms I stress you must win if you don't get the weapon then smash/stick it in the other guys face and keep it up until they give up and you get the gun. If you go for the gun and fail your pretty much dead. You must win this fight. If you get the gun shoulder bump or smash them in the face with it. Then retreat creating space and find out if it's loaded, on safe, out of battery etc. If you can't make it work use it as a bloody big rock and beat them until they stop! A couple of pounds of steel in the face is most persuasive. If they need more convincing keep hitting!

I stress pointing the pointy end ,the business end while striking. If you get an accidental discharge at least the bad guy gets it instead of you! Whoops!

Thanks for that Robb! We had the same trend in Canada long before gun control was stuffed down our throats, violence and gun crime was on a nine year decline. The trend continued and the anti crowd claims they fixed a problem.
