Banning Guns To Prevent Killing Is Like Banning Silverware To Stop Obesity. It’s Just Plain Stupid.

I hate it that innocent people get killed by shooters. It makes me sick to think that some idiot just randomly takes lives. But do I think a law banning rifles is going to make those idiots think ” Golly, I really have no choice now, I’ll just have to quit harming people” – not a chance.

Taking the rights of people to be armed the same way killers are is just a set up for more killings. Now the killers can rest assured that those they go after won’t be any threat. Now the law abiding “no rifle” citizen is an EASIER target for the bad guys.

To solve obesity, maybe we should ban silverware. This way the people who overeat will be forced to stop eating! Right? Same idea.

It’s also worked wonders banning drugs, right? I mean gosh the drug problem is nearly gone! Only 60k overdose deaths from heroin last year . What a relief!

I’m not pro-drugs, but I am pro common sense.

Let’s use some common sense, not knee jerk nonsense reactions.

I’m out.
