What's your opinion? Don't the same guys who say that home invasion is so likely that they need a gun, also say most gun violence is gang related? When we say there are too many legitimate gun owners doing bad things, they say it's not true, that most gun violence is drug and gang related. When we say you don't need a gun in the home,they say oh yes, the chances of home invasion by armed madmen is too high.Statistics and various studies show that yes, it might, but they also show that having a gun in the home is also potentially very dangerous, so the net aggregate outcome (and economists have strong armed us into thinking that net aggregate outcomes are the only criteria that are acceptable, bless their pointy heads) of having a gun in the home is that someone in your home is more likely to be shot and possibly killed than that the gun will be used to thwart a home invasion.
Sometimes I think the pro-gun guys just say anything they want. What do you think?
