“When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns”


We hear this all the time.  It’s the NRA’s mantra.

But look closely at the phrase.  It implies, “if nobody was allowed to legally purchase or own a gun, then the bad guys will kill us.”




Say firearms purchases were made illegal and any current firearm you own was snatched away from you.   What would you do?

That’s right.  If you wanted a gun , you’d go buy it out of some guy’s trunk down by the bridge, just like everybody else.  It’s the government.  You can get around it.

I mean, marijuana’s illegal, and I hear THAT’S pretty popular.
