Banning Guns Won't Solve The Problem

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Mr. Exum, you have hit the nail on the head.  I could not have said it better myself.  Banning guns will not solve this problem.  Evil will find a way to do business no matter what.   

How did the gun ban work out for ya, Chicago?  How about you guys in D.C.?  The places that don't allow guns, only allow criminals to flourish.  All of these despicable acts of evil all took place in locations that did not allow guns.  These "gun free zones" are the perfect playground for evil doers to ruin lives. 

I have a proposal that I think is fair.  I will ban guns in my house once the White House bans guns in their house.  If the White House is comfortable that a "no guns allowed" sign will keep them safe at night, I'll do the same.  Maybe the evil doers will leave their guns in the car.  

Of all people, I would think our upper level politicians would realize that guns are necessary to keep evil at bay.  I certainly don't see any of them giving up their security details.
