  •  The problem (7+ / 0-)

    is that the lines between the "law abiding" and the "criminal" are more skewed than most are willing to admit. All criminals were once law abiding, and most perpetrators of gun crime were law abiding citizens when they decided to buy their guns (and most of the time, those guns were bought for law-abiding purposes).

    Also, people seem to overestimate their own ability to protect themselves (or anything) with a gun. If someone wants to kill you bad enough, you are going to be dead. The majority of gun owners do not have anything near the training and judgment that they think they have. These are not Seals acting with precision. In reality, most of these people are only able to defend themselves with weapons in their wildest dreams.
