Anti-liberty and anti-citizen.Nonetheless, I think it's generally true that when guns are involved, potentially murderous conflicts are likely to turn murderous more often. When you are looking to kill someone, a gun is a great help, which is why we send armies into battle armed with great big rifles and not pieces of pipe. If there were no guns in the United States, I believe that the murder rate would probably be lower.http://www.thedailybeast.com/article...hey-don-t.html
What?But, she is a employee of Newsweek.But while I believe that the completed homicide rate would fall, I don't think that the attempted homicide rate would be lower.
Appears to me to be a member in good standing with the He-Woman Man Haters Club.I'm pretty physically passive, and so squeamish that I find even very mild movie violence unbearable, but I too have fantasized about having a tank so that I could go after that testosterone estrogen-addled teenage jerk who just cut me off in traffic. God knows what's going through the brain of the testosterone estrogen-addled teenage jerk when it happens to him.
That highlighted in green is the only thing I agree with.Those boys are indeed damn fools. But it turns out that most adults men keep the idiot in them under wraps, not because they lack an adequate weapon, but because they have changed in too many ways: their brains have changed, they have more sad experience with where those confrontations lead, they have a better conception of the future (and better reasons to stay out of jail), and they have other measures of success which make it less necessary to prove that they're the toughest guy on the block. Putting a gun in the adult's man's hand doesn't make it any easier or harder to control that idiot; indeed, you could say that adulthood manhood is the point at which you can look at a gun in your hand and immediately think of all the reasons you should avoid using it.
