“Guns Don’t Kill People, People Kill People.” The Problem Being?

There’s a reason that Hickok45’s son is sitting in a chair with the camera towering above him for this rant. The man is taller than the tall tales anti-gunners tell to justify their crusade for civilian disarmament. One of the more popular counters thrown back at them: guns don’t kill people, people kill people!

The extravagantly bearded gun guy thinks that’s a dumb argument. No one — well hardly anyone — thinks a gun will kill someone of its own volition. Methinks he’s missing the point.

The expression reminds antis — and The People of the Gun — to focus on the killer, not the means. I don’t like it as much as “when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns,” but low information voters need easily understood slogans. I say GDKP, PKP stays. You?
