#1) You can always count on the police to protect you: That's just a fact. Police are proven 100% effective at protecting innocent people!
#2) There's no evidence to suggest the government would ever overstep and try to take away your rights: A government has literally never done this. Don't be so paranoid!
#3) Guns make journalists wet their pants: If you live near a journalist and he hears you own a gun, he may wet his pants. You don't want something like that on your conscience.
#4) Guns are NOT cool and awesome and fun to shoot and useful for protection: Just trust us on this. We're journalists.
#5) Criminals have guns and use them to do bad things: You don't want to be like a criminal, do you?
#6) Nobody's going to break into your house when there's plenty of free stuff to loot at Target: Relax. Seriously.
#7) Your much manlier neighbor already has a gun: You can just borrow his if you really need it!
#8) Gun handling is best left to the professionals: Like Alec Baldwin.
I guess it's time to unload my sidearm and lock it away.
