    Copyright © 2018, More than 265,000 Illinois residents have a concealed carry license, about 2 percent of the state's adult population. But the state does not keep records on when these license holders fire their weapons, how often they do it, or if they wound or kill someone.

    REPOSTING FROM ANOTHER THREAD:

    Putting aside all other arguments RE constitutionality, natural rights, etc. - the primary weakness in the anti-gunner arguments is that they manage to fixate on the firearm and do not direct an equivalent degree of ire at the person misusing that firearm.

    No, it's 100% true....

    REPOSTING FROM ANOTHER THREAD:

    Putting aside all other arguments RE constitutionality, natural rights, etc. - the primary weakness in the anti-gunner arguments is that they manage to fixate on the firearm and do not direct an equivalent degree of ire at the person misusing that firearm.

    No, it's 100% true. If you have a millennium to spare do a search on EB on the topic.

    I doubt that 1 out of 1,000 anti-gunner EB posts or responses were about the attacker/killer.

    I believe the crux of that mindset is that the anti-gunners aren't disclosing that what they hate more than the guns, is the killing. What they really want is to stop the killing. There are uncounted numbers of anti-gunners who are simply putative pacifists in that regard.

    After eons of trying they have not been able to achieve that. Most of them would have to know that this just can't ever happen. The earth won't exist long enough to see a substantial change in human nature so as to make that time of tranquility possible.

    So, unable to get what they want by asking people to be nicer to each other they turn their attention to the instrumentality of their displeasure ... the weapon used.

    But as I've said before, what, 350,000,000 firearms? Billions of rounds of ammunition.

    If anti-gunners really do want to stop the shootings then they have to demand that the shooters - the individuals - doing the shooting be stopped and judicially processed.

    And their demands need to be louder than their "anti-thing" crusade.

    In the meantime, the anti-thing argument is just so played out folks. C'mon ... let's go after something that we CAN achieve. Criminal justice.

    Stopping criminal individuals. Can we not agree that this should be our No. 1 priority?

  • The anti thing is for optics and faux rage
