Of course that's not the case at all. No one knows how to exaggerate like our gun guys.

A few days ago there was a terrible multiple murder/suicide, which, being fairly rare thereabouts, made international news. Her are some interesting details.
What's your opinion? Does that sound like the anti-freedom and anti-rights place they keep telling us about? No, it doesn't.Labour MP Grahame Morris said outside the police cordon: "The issue is that in 2008 police responded to a call that there was a domestic argument and Mr Atherton had threatened to self-harm - to shoot himself. At the time the police took his firearms from him and he applied to have them returned. Police made an assessment and they were returned to him."
Durham Police confirmed that the weapons were taken from Mr Atherton's house as a precaution, but as he insisted there had been no threat to harm himself, the weapons were returned. That decision followed national procedure, a force spokesman said. "It was one person's word against another," he added.
Why do the pro-gun folks keep lying like that? Why do you think they find it necessary to exaggerate the situation before arguing against it? How many times have we heard about the "gun bans" in England? How many times have they told us the registration would lead to confiscation for us "just like it did in England?"
What's your opinion? I tend to think our gun enthusiasts are usually just mindlessly repeating what they've heard from others. The argument sounds good and it supports their obsessive fetish, so they go with it.
