Banning guns makes sense Homemade Firearms Only if you ignore the little fact that you can make one in your garage. Technology refuses to agree with the gun control agenda. Comments McThag says: on 12/16/2013 at 11:35 AM And that's a COMPLICATED gun by comparison to what you can make. Daniel in Brookline says: on 12/16/2013 at 10:53 PM I disagree. Even if you ignore the homemade guns, banning guns STILL doesn't make sense.Banning guns makes sense if --1. You believe, contrary to data and common sense, that more people die from shootings than are saved from using a gun to scare off an assailant, AND2. You believe (again, contrary to the facts) that people are more likely to hurt themselves with their guns than they are to use them properly, AND3. You believe (contrary to all recorded human history) that, with no guns, strong people won't take advantage of weak people... or that, if they do, it's somehow okay.What else am I missing here? (Please help me out, people.) What combination of things must be true, for gun control to make sense? Comments have been closed on this topic.
