As I was trying to catch up and clean out my email inbox today (over 600 emails is just too much!!!), I came across this post by Dr. John Persico. This is the simplest, most logical argument I have seen for stricter gun regulation and he puts to bed the myth of the “good guy with a gun”. Thank you, Dr. Persico, for this excellent assessment!
Gun control is only a first step. Some of the Second Amendment advocates are right about one thing. There are some of us who want to take their guns away. Not all of their guns, but some of their guns. Licensing, background checks, restrictions on types of firearms, restrictions on clip size, none of these will stop the mass killings in America. There is a simple reason for this. There are too many guns in America available. Look at it this way.
Assume that there were 100,000 cars in a given area. Assume that for every 100,000 cars there would be an average of 100 accidents per year. This assumption can be verified by statistical analysis of car accidents in a given area. Some places will have more accidents than other places, but all places with cars will have some accidents.
