I never implied that there was any such thing as this mythical "cure" for gun violence. I would sooner argue in favor of the existence of Leprechauns than try to make people believe that fairy tale.
I'm saying disarming the populous exacerbates the problem of gun violence. I'm not saying it will be "cured" by arming the populous, I'm saying that not disarming the populous will prevent such an exacerbation.
I'm saying preventing law abiding citizens from getting guns in order to protect themselves form the criminal element only serves to make matters worse.
The only people who buy the myth that gun violence can be "cured" are those who buy into the myth that gun control is this fantasy cure-all.
There is no cure for gun violence, but by making it impossible for people to defend themselves, and forcing them to rely on an inept and corrupt police system, only serves to make matters worse and strengthen the criminals who are not nearly as inept, and have corrupted the police system.
I notice that information is missing here. I wonder why.
I also wonder how a responsible and porfessional press corps could omit such a thing.
As I said -- all of this just shows how desperate the anti-gun side is to ban 'assault weapons', and to what lengths they will go do justify such a thing.
George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.
