It’s the ‘good’ people with guns we have to worry about


The National Rifle Association would have us believe that it is “bad people with guns” who cause the tragedies proponents of gun control are trying to limit, but in my view this misses the point. A criminal, regardless of laws and regulations, will always find a way to get a gun. It’s “good people with guns,” some of them, anyway, whom we have to worry about — people who, in the absence of a gun in their immediate possession, would be limited to less lethal means for taking out their rage on others.
