When NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre stated, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” I absolutely agree with him. Continue Reading

The “bad guys” commit crimes and have a criminal record to prove it. Taking the means to defend ones self from the “good guys” is very good for the “bad guys”. The “bad guys” will always have the guns they aren’t legally permitted to have right now.

Were the kids in Columbine “bad guys”? The kid at Red Lake? Chi Vang? The kid at New Town? The rogue L.A. cop?? Its not “bad guys” who snap and do these mass killings…with GUNS. The mass killings are virtually never done by CAREER CRIMINALS. Without fail, you almost always hear from people who knew the killer, who describe him as ‘a quiet guy, who never bothered anyone’. Your “good guy/bad guy” talk is largely…baseless garbage.

So your saying that the Red Lake, Newtown, Columbine etc. killers were good guys. I don’t think that description is going to fly. In all those instances there were major warning flags that were ignored There are a tremendous number of “bad guys” with guns stopped by “good guys” with guns.

He is saying they did not have criminal records until the point of where they snapped. It is not as cut and dry as good guy vs bad guy. How do you identify good vs bad when you sell them a gun? How do you know good is not going to turn to the darkside and become bad?

Does this work for you? To shoot and kill people is bad. If you do that you are bad.
I don’t give a rats butt about semantics and splitting hairs over definitions. Those mentioned are cowards who killed innocent, unarmed people, children. You don’t see the cowards attacking targets who have a chance to fight back do you? Quit making excuses for these losers.

Going to the dark side happens in the voting booth all the time. How else do you think Obama got elected? Should Obama voters be disqualified from voting in the future?

do you know the odds of actually using a gun for self defense? Did you know you are 4 times more likely to harm yourself or loved one than to use your gun in self defense. Did there are only around 100 murders in the state of mn anually and this includes gang and drug related crimes.

And that’s exactly why the current panic to pass bans on magazines and certain types of firearms as some of the legislators in St Paul seem intent on doing is ridiculous. Furthermore of those 100 annual murders in Minnesota not all committed by firearms. Some are committed with cutting instruments or blunt objects plus a few other means and as you said some of the murders are gang related and drug related and all the firearms bans in the world won’t stop those.
