38. Until legal gun carriers start shooting up innocent people in statistically significant #'s...

 

Then you will not be able to stop “Any Gun, Any Time, Any Place”.

The fact of the matter is that 99.9% of the time the LEGAL LAWFUL gun carriers are not the problem. Through selective representation they have lower incidence of criminal misconduct than the general public (sometimes even the police) and rarely cause problems. Sure, there a few instances of incidents as with any demographic this size - but the number of incidents compared to the select population being obserrved are nearly statistically insignificant.

Moreover, with the ease of information propogation and the internet, the public is learning this. Unless there is a massive consistent uptick in lawful carriers abusing their rights/priveleges then the public will not be swayed from current acceptance of gun rights expansion. The public is witnessing the past decades of massive gun rghts expansion... and blood is not "flowing in the streets" nor have we devolved into the "wild west". The antirights memes and half-truths have been tried and found fallacious. As with many anti-rights movements that have fallen by the wayside, predjudice & ignorance against guns and their owners appear to be the only thing keeping the anti gun rights movement alive.

The hypocricy with which liberal people proclaim to be avid proponents of an anti-rights movement is always good for a laugh.
