Can a Legitimate Case Be
Made for 'Gun Control'?

From Dan Gifford. November 21, 2019

When presidential candidate Joe Biden said that, he nailed the core of anti-Second Amendment activism. Perhaps the most frustrating part of writing an article about Second Amendment "gun control" issues is that the subject is thoroughly plowed ground. There is nothing new save the new faces mouthing the same well-known discredited "truths."

You know the "truths:"

  • A study proved a gun in the home is more likely to shoot a family member than an intruder.
  • Citizens have no business possessing "weapons of war."
  • Background checks keep guns out of the hands of bad people.
  • Government professionals must be legally empowered to forcibly take firearms from those said to be angry or unstable.
  • Gun ownership is compensation for genital shortcomings — and so on.

Those and others you know well are the "truths" of those who see Second Amendment rights defenders as underclass "deplorables" who "cling to their Bibles and guns" despite a sea of contrary fact. .....

[Ed: This article was just published in the California Rifle & Pistol Association's November-December issue of Firing Line. DRGO constantly evaluates and publicizes the illegitimacy of "gun control research". We were delighted to see Dan Gifford address this likewise.]
