Four Myths of Gun Control

Nice piece from Jay Ambrose. Check it out:
Gun-control advocates snicker at what gun libertarians say - that if you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns, and that it's not guns that kill people, but people who kill people. But these slogans - while obvious simplifications, as all such slogans are - have a huge advantage over the largely uninformed, morally superior rantings of many of the loudest, most-in-your-face gun-control advocates. Though leaving out some nuances and qualifications, they are fundamentally true.

Compare them to "you have a small penis". I think our 'slogans' actually boil it down to the essence. Not perfect but pretty much unassailable.

Just plain common sense.

That was pretty good, and I sent him an email saying so.
I wonder how many of those he got, and how many saying the opposite?
