This belief is held in spite of documented evidence that shows just the opposite. There is no correlation between an increase in gun ownership and violent crime. In fact, the results are just the opposite of what the progressive left claims. Another case of “don’t confuse me with the facts.”
Also, violent criminals are much more likely to be violent and criminal if they think that the victim is helpless. They are not as stupid as the liberals, progressives and Democrats. It starts with bullies in school. It is demonstrated by the cops who would rather pull over an old lady going five miles over the speed limit than a low-rider with his stereo deafening the neighborhood. It continues in the world of thugs. How would a burglar answer the following question? I ask my students this when gun control comes up in class.
“If you wanted to break into a house and steal someone else’s property would you hit the house that has a sign saying ‘Gun Free Zone,’ or the one with an announcement ‘Insured by Smith and Wesson”?For those living in the bubble of modern education, Smith and Wesson is a gun manufacturer.
I believe in freedom and responsibility. I think you should have the freedom to live in a gun free zone. I would love to live next door to you so that you look like the target of choice. You could be my insurance policy. I prefer the freedom guaranteed in the Second Amendment to the Constitution. I also think that you should be responsible for the loss of your property and possibly, life. I am willing to be responsible for my misuse of a firearm.
