Response to applegrove (Reply #34)

39. Why?

Why do the gun-ban people like to post an endless parade of "crime with a gun" stories? Well, you see, they want to demonize the use of firearms in order to further their prohibitionist agenda. And others want to counter this propaganda by pointing out the utility of firearms as tools of legitimate self-defense.

The NRA is "trying to change how people think"? How are people supposed to think? Are they supposed to think that it's better for people to become victims of violent crime than to use firearms in their own defense?
