Dear Gun-Grabbers, What’s Best for ‘Society’ Is Not My Problem

Dear Gun-Grabbers, What’s Best for ‘Society’ Is Not My Problem

 

I remember when I was in boy scouts (before they let gay and transgender men in as scout leaders) as a lad we had a really cool Scout Leader (Mr. P, God Bless You Sir!) who every Friday would give us a Basic Civics Lesson and this one week he taught us about the “Family First” Rule of Society.

A MAN’S first duty is to take care of his family!

Treat his wife with honor and respect, Raise his kids right and most of all PROTECT them from the world outside their door.

If each and every man follows this rule, Society as a whole has a pretty good shot of turning out decent.

To Prove this point look at the current state of the FAMILY in America (including the high rate of divorce) and then look at SOCIETY.

Yeah, look like the two do in fact correlate!

Does Carrying A Pistol Make You Safer?

I am reminded of the words of Jeff Cooper:

 

“Owning a handgun doesn’t make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician.”

“The Only thing that can stop a BAD guy with a gun is a GOOD guy with a gun.”

“In the larger sense, however, the personal ownership of firearms is only secondarily a matter of defense against the criminal. Note the following from Thomas Jefferson: The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government. That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants.”

It’s puzzling that so many Americans are choosing to arm themselves at a time when the FBI tells usviolent crimeandproperty crimehave been falling dramatically for two decades.

John Burnett, NPR

“It’s puzzling that so many homeowners are choosing to maintain fire extinguishers at a time when the data tells us fire incidents have been falling dramatically” would sound about the same. Also, this has been the trend for three decades, since the early 1990s.

There is no correlation between homocide and gun ownership. Tools don’t do anything by themselves and their presence can not make you more or less safe. BJ Campbell has a tremendous article on this that thoroughly looks at the numbers and analyzes how a series of less-thorough reports got this wrong.

Feeling the Weight of the Gun

SlowFacts

I recently took a handgun class. I was there to renew my concealed carry license, but the rest of my classmates were applying for their carry license for the first time. Several of them had only shot a gun a few times. You could see it in their eyes. They were there to learn how to handle a handgun, a lethal tool. There is a lot to learn. 

This is a time of unprecedented demand for firearms. Given the limited selection in most gun shops, it is harder than ever to find the gun that is right for you. Before you buy it, you want to handle it, load it, and shoot it to see how it feels. After the classroom lecture in the concealed carry class, the instructor let students handle their unloaded firearms which were arrayed on a table. This was the first chance for some students to…
