On Letter: Guns for all


Bart Johnson 2 years, 8 months ago

The criminals who are actually a threat to your safety aren't worried about the legality of carrying firearms. When good people are disarmed by gun restrictions, the criminals become a greater threat because they know their victims will be disarmed.

This is so obvious I cannot understand why anyone could disagree.

I disagree on the basis that most people who have such a strong compulsion to gun-tote probably aren't all that good as people.

And of course we keep hearing on the news where one of them got upset and shot someone, or one of them reached in his pocket for change and shot his wife, or one of them leaves the loaded gun where children got it and killed themselves or someone else.

Stupid isn't in my definition of "good people" - it's irresponsible and not smart and not good.
