    Hold up a second...

    You said that guns were a deterrent.

    If that was the case, then there should be no crime at all because we have the highest guns-per-capita in the world. But we do have crime. So that means guns aren't a deterrent.


    Of the 153 mass shootings (defined as a shooting where more than 4 people are killed) from 2005-2014, only 15 were in "gun free zones".

    Besides, with the highest guns-per-capita in the world, we shouldn't have any crime because according to you, guns are a deterrent.

    So it's just a link to an Op-Ed column in the Federalist. That's supposed to prove, what?

    Look dude, I can't help it if you make arguments that eat themselves. That's your deficiency to work through; I'm just trying to piece together what it is you actually believe.

    Well, I agree with a lot of this regarding conservatives and leftists. But I'm a libertarian, I never trust government solutions. So I don't find it particularly applicable. I'm pro-gun rights, but I'm also pro-choice. I'm against the war on drugs. My positions are consistent. Ronald Reagan. Government is not the solution, government is the problem
