Punching Holes in the Gun Control Argument

The best argument against gun control is simply the facts.  When logic and fact are used, the anti-gun crowd goes to their only weapon which is irrational fear and emotionally driven scenarios.

The entire country was horrified when the children at Sandy Hook Elementary School were murdered by an evil young man.  However, in typical liberal fashion, the anti-gun crowed pounced on the opportunity to exploit the tragedy parading the survivors and the parents like props.

Liberals have done everything they can to take advantage of this tragedy, taking a page from Rahm Emanuel, the current Mayor of Chicago, who was quoted as White House Chief of Staff saying, "You never let a serious crisis
go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." 

So, we have all heard about the evils of guns, how they kill, destroy and have no purpose in a civilized world.  We have been called out by Jim Carry as,"heartless *%##*&*@s unwilling to bend for the safety of our kids."  A ban on "Assault Weapons" and magazine capacity reduction has been proclaimed as as the most important measures to assure that another Sandy Hook would be less likely to occur again.

Unfortunately for the liberal anti-gun crowd, there are those pesky facts that destroy their arguments.  A study just recently released shoots so many holes through gun-control arguments you would think someone riddled it with a semi-automatic with a standard capacity magazine.  Here are just a few examples of the facts found from the Bureau of Justice Statistics:

Fact #1: Firearm-related homicides declined 39% and nonfatal firearm crimes dropped 69% from 1993-2011.

Fact #2: Fewer than 2% of state prison inmates who used a gun in a crime bought their firearm at a flew market or gun show.  40% obtained their firearm from an ILLEGAL source.

Fact #3: The murder rate in schools DROPPED by almost a third between 1993-2011. 

Fact #4: Regarding mass homicides, from 1980-2008, murders that claimed at least three lives accounted for less than 1% of all homicide deaths.

The report proves a decrease in gun related crime over an 18 year period of time. Ultimately the statistics are just a few of the hundreds of other documented facts that support lawful gun owners and shred the efforts of gun-control advocates.

To win this battle against the 2nd Amendment, don't forget to arm yourself with the facts.  The facts will win out over the liberal irrational fear and emotional dribble.
