TTAG reader Aaron emailed a link to this image accompanying Tenn. rejects more gun purchase applications at The Daily News Journal of Murfreesboro TN. I understand why he finds it so upsetting: the sign maker (one Lee Foster) assumes that Americans who own guns lawfully don’t care about safeguarding innocent life. In the main, the exact opposite is true. In fact, the firearm in the single best tool a law-abiding person can use to protect innocent life when facing an attack by someone who doesn’t respect the sanctity of human life. The road to hell may be paved with good intentions but that doesn’t excuse driving with your eyes closed. Ms. Foster and her ilk are going to hit something. But that’s the way it goes.
