Top Ten Reasons Gun Control Freaks Are Insane

To really believe in gun control, you have to believe these nifty little lies:

(10) That guns are not an effective means of self-defense, which is why police carry them.

(9) Washington, DC's low murder rate of 80.6 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control, and Arlington, VA's high murder rate of 1.6 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun control.

(8) That a hijacker could easily take a gun away from a pilot, but the hundreds of passengers aboard would then be unable to take the gun away from the hijacker.

(7) That if there'd been a gun aboard American Airlines Flight 11, someone could have been hurt.

(6) That we should outlaw bullet proof vests so criminals can't use them, and private citizens should be then proud to be killed in the crossfire, knowing they are doing their part for society.

(5) That a baseball bat is good protection against a burglar, provided his gun fires baseballs.

(4) That it's safer with less guns, which is why lunatics shoot up schools instead of gun shows or police stations.

(3) That an intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .44 Magnum will get angry over your retaliation and kill you.

(2) That firearms in the hands of private citizens are the gravest threat to world peace, and China, Pakistan, and North Korea can be trusted with nuclear weapons.

And the best reason gun control freaks are insane is:

(1) That guns are the gravest threat to society because 83,000,000 gun owners didn't commit a crime yesterday.
