You appear to live in a fantasy bubble where everyone you disagree with is an “anti-gun extremist”. I’ve never put forth this argument, yet you keep accusing me of doing so. I merely disprove your argument time after time that private ownership of guns reduces crime and your idolised “gun gurus” have feet of clay.2aguy said:This fact, according to you, should have increased the gun crime rate in the United States as the rest of the world experienced crime rates going down....since, again, your argument is more guns will increase gun crime and regular crime.
Just because you seem unable to grasp my position I’ll say again, I like guns, I used to own three handguns when it was legal to do so in the UK and spent a lot of my spare time on the shooting range. In that respect, I’m possibly your worst nightmare, someone who’s not afraid of guns but sees the value in gun registration, licensing after strict background/medical/psychological checks and extensive compulsory training in handling and safe storing of firearms. In other words, responsible gun ownership.
I do not see the value of letting every Tom, Dick or Harry carry guns around without any restrictions; the situation you have in the USA. I do not subscribe to the myth that, “the only thing stopping a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
