We can use all the facts we want, but it still doesn’t seem to change the gun controller’s mind. Maybe this analogy will. Fingers crossed.
There are facts we’re not being told on TV about our 2nd Amendment Right to Bear Arms, so I want to talk to you about gun control in America.
Why did all of the big media focus their attention on the attacks in Orlando and completely ignore the fact that the following weekend 52 people were shot in Chicago? Is it mere coincidence that Orlando has very liberal gun laws and received media attention while Chicago, who has the strictest gun control in the nation, received little to none?
Despite our second amendment there seems to be an agenda for even stricter gun control.
Yet this agenda blatantly ignores the simple statistics that the experiment of gun control in other countries is already underway and failing with horrific result.
I carry a gun because there are two types of creatures on this planet – there are predators and prey. No one watches a cheetah chase down a gazelle and denies that the gazelle has the right to use its horns to protect itself.
Yet there are people who would deny that same right of self-defense to other human beings.
These same such people seem to think that the way to stop the cheetah is to cut the horns off of the gazelle; that somehow if you make it easier for the predator the predator will simply go away.
It doesn’t work that way. If you make it easier for the predator you get more predators.
I carry a gun because when predators know they’re less likely to have an advantage they’re less likely to be a predator.
The FBI found that when states allow concealed carry murder rates are immediately reduced.
Cities in America that pass laws requiring households to have a firearm see the number of home invasions drop dramatically.
I carry a gun because the ratio a gun is used in a homicide is significantly less than when it’s used in self-defense.
Firearms are used up to 300 times more often to save innocent lives than to commit a murder.
Guns prevent up to 2.5 million crimes in the U.S. every year often without a shot ever being fired.
I carry a gun not because it’s a weapon but because it’s a shield.
200,000 women every year use a gun to defend themselves against sexual abuse.
I carry a gun because almost every mass shooting in the last 50 years took place in a gun free zone.
Law-abiding citizens are forced to give up their right to protect themselves while every criminal breaks the law including gun-free zone signs when they decide to murder.
I carry a gun because a gun-free zone makes it easier for predators to target their prey.
