Taking Away Guns is Stupid

Do Not Ban Guns

Don’t get me wrong, I’m far from one of these NRA guys who wants to keep his gun on his hip all the time. I’m not one of these types who sits at home paranoid that I might have someone break in. On the other hand, the reasoning behind outlawing guns has to be one of the stupidest things I have ever heard.

You have people like Oprah Winfrey or others making the argument that by somehow outlawing guns will make criminals less likely to kill others. First off, they want to totally overlook one big word… it is called criminals. If I am a criminal, I own a gun and have intentions of using it on a person, why would I consider giving it up? I am not going to.

The only thing outlawing guns does is takes away those honest citizens ability to own one. The criminals will still have them, we won’t ever be able to change that. Much like drugs, the criminals will still be able to find access to them somehow.

If we really want to combat crime, we should take a more proactive approach. Banning firearms is not the answer.
