What Gun Control Folks Want

Posted on the 06 April 2011 by Mikeb302000
Joe Huffman posted a little story about a sorority which raised money for the Brady Campaign. It, and some of the predictable comments, inspired me to comment like this.
It's not enough for gun control advocates to not buy guns themselves. The whole point is to prevent others who are unfit to responsibly handle gun ownership to not be able to buy them. Why do you guys always morph that into taking your rights away? It's nothing of the sort. Most gun control folks, myself included, have no problem with lawful and responsible gun ownership. I realize you object to the government deciding who qualifies, but how the hell else can we do it. You've not been doing too good a job policing yourselves and keeping all those guns among the law abiding. With your lax gun laws and your wrong-headed attitudes about guns you're continually feeding the criminal world with them. It needs to stop and the sorority sisters you mentioned are trying to help.
What do you think? Do the pro-gun guys purposely misunderstand what we're getting at? As soon as any gun control initiatives are mentioned, they start crying about losing their rights, as if the simplest restriction immediately leads to total gun bans.
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.
