This has got to be one of the most incredibly stupid arguments against the 2nd Amendment we have ever seen.
Reading the entire blog will actually kill some of your brain cells so beware but we’ll share some of the idiocy here to mock.
From The Huffington Post:
The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right for a fair trial. Therefore, using a firearm to defend oneself is not legal because if the attacker is killed, he or she is devoid of his or her rights.
A criminal attacks a person who has a firearm for self defense as protected under the 2nd Amendment. What about THEIR rights?
Apparently using a firearm in self defense negates the criminal activity of the person committing a crime because the victim actually had the balls to defend his or herself.
And the hoplophobic left wing tool goes on:
Therefore, if we ponder and meditate on the recent events in news about guns, it would be obvious that the current state is incorrect. A gun for civilians is a weapon for a revolution and not for ordinary use. The belief that a gun is a useful tool to protect one is counterintuitive because guns get into the hands of people who use them for horrible reasons.
There are around 90 – 100 MILLION gun owners in the United States of America. Guns used by criminals is statistically insignificant by comparison.
Gun violence isn’t even a statistical blip on the radar compared to the number of gun owners and number of guns they own in this country.
As a matter of fact, if this ignoramus had actually bothered to do any research he would know that gun ownership is up while violent crime is DOWN. Hmmm… maybe it’s because criminals are cowards and know that more and more people are making the decision to protect themselves with firearms?
This is the kind of illogical and ignorant thought process of hoplophobes who can’t understand normal thinking. They completely negate statistics and facts all while pretending they have a clue.
It’s seriously hard to grasp how these people make it through an ordinary day doing the basic things that one needs to do in order to simply live.
