These days, gun control advocates promote “gun violence prevention.” But they still call civilian disarmament “common sense.” Confiscate firearms from people who’ve been accused — but not convicted — of domestic violence . . .
Why that’s common sense! Pay no attention to the Fourth Amendment behind that curtain. Ban “weapons of war” from civilian possession? Common sense! Limit ammunition capacity to 10 rounds? Common sense!
In other words, don’t trouble yourself with firearms-related facts or analysis. Just shut off your mind and use “common sense.”
Scarily enough, that’s the way most Americans think. I mean, don’t think. Fortunately enough, firearms freedom is based on actual common sense.
Here are a few “common sense” statements underpinning of Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.
Guns are safe – Tens of millions of gun owners keep and bear arms without injury to themselves or others. Every single day, for their entire life.
A gun is the best tool for self-defense – Guns are easy to operate, and they’re more effective for preventing or ending an attack than any other commonly available weapon.
“Gun free zones” encourage criminals – Criminals are more likely to rob, rape or kill in an area where they know their victims are disarmed.
Gun control doesn’t work – Criminals don’t obey gun laws.
