  •  The pro-gun argument goes like this (4+ / 0-)

    No background check would have kept guns out of the hands of this irresponsible and irrational gun owner, and no assault weapons ban is likely to reduce the threat from people like this (they'll keep the assault weapons they have).  Why bother with legislation?
    Well, we have to start somewhere - over the long term, we can reduce the amount of weapons and reduce the number of incidents of gun violence, gradually.
    The only thing gradual will be increases in the number of gun control laws - it will open the flood gates, eventually disarming Americans and their ability to protect themselves.  They won't stop here.
    Yes, that's correct.  As it should be.
    Then, criminals will rule the country.  Or, good citizens with arms will.  Which country do you choose?  
    I wouldn't want to live in either, frankly.
