Proof that Guns are Evil, In and Of Themselves

The Chicago Tribune:

EQUALITY, Ill. — A coroner in southern Illinois says a dropped gun fired a bullet that accidentally killed a 59-year-old woman in her home. Gallatin County Coroner Tony Cox says Lawana Hancock of Equality died last week after being shot once in the lower back. Cox says an autopsy shows the bullet traveled through her left lung, then went upward through her neck and lodged in her jaw. The coroner tells The (Harrisburg) Daily Register that Hancock’s husband and a friend were at the house at the time.

    What kind of gun? Certainly nothing manufactured in the last 50 years.

    But, the gun did not load itself, did it? They did not have the safety on. Nor the chamber empty. Some people are stupid. Some people are not concerned about their safety and end up killing themselves and others. Is alcohol evil because people have addictions to it and with excessive use, can cause people to kill while driving drunk? The gun is not evil, the owner was just careless, and payed the price of that carelessness.

      Amen friend. Finally someone with common sense.

    The gun is evil. It was designed to kill people, and a nation which defends guns defends murder.

      That’s one theory.

        “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country.” –Adolf Hitler, dinner talk on April 11, 1942, quoted in Hitler’s Table Talk 1941-44: His Private Conversations, Second Edition (1973), Pg. 425-426. Translated by Norman Cameron and R. H. Stevens. Introduced and with a new preface by H. R. Trevor-Roper. The original German papers were known as Bormann-Vermerke.

      Read the 2nd and 3rd Amendment. You ask: What is the 3rd? Protects against having to quarter government soldiers. How do you suppose we do that without guns? MA., CT., NY., CAL. and Chicago have the strictest regulations on weapons and they have the highest crime rates. The proof is in the pudding. Take a look at Buffalo NYs amount of murders in the past year. Also on the rise. If you ban guns only criminals will have guns. Also, making guns illegal will now make criminals out of otherwise hard working, taxpaying Americans who own guns for all the right reason.

    What if I fell on a knife? Let’s ban knives, why don’t we? Or if I burnt myself on a stove. Let’s ban stoves, why don’t we? Or if I was swinging my fists around for some reason and hit myself in the face? Your argument is utterly invalid. You are giving human attributes to an inanimate object. A gun is a machine. Everything it is made to do is in context. If I shot you, that would be bad (though you are very, VERY naive and have a horrible habit of bias and generalizations in your arguments, I still value your life.). When Navy Seals shot Osama Bin Laden, that was good. Context.

    Newer guns have safety features that stop the gun from firing when it is dropped.
