Anti-gunners believe that all gun owners are, at the very least, potentially stupid. They believe a gun is an accident waiting to happen (save guns in the hands of the police but don’t get me started). Because people are stupid. Emotionally unstable. Psychologically incapable of judicious application of lethal force. Let’s face it: some gun owners answer to that description.
That’s no excuse for violating the Second Amendment’s prohibition against government infringement on anyone’s right to keep and bear arms. People are stupid about voting, too. The question here: is it true, as Comedian Ron White told us, “you can’t fix stupid”? If, for example, we taught gun safety in school, could we prevent at least some firearms stupidity?
