New Gun Laws

April 11, 2011 by  

Let’s stop with the fear-mongering over whether law-abiding citizens ought to be able to defend themselves in this world we wish were danger-free.  In the real world bad dudes carry – often with intent to harm – whether a building sports a “Gun-Free Zone” sign or not.

Some may not have all their wits about them – like the Jared Loughners of the world – others may have a vendetta they won’t hesitate to carry out at a workplace, church or school campus – anywhere – especially where there’s a sign disarming anyone who might get in their way – like an armed citizen.

Even more insidious, before long even badder dudes  –  radical Islamic terrorists – may have the upper hand within our own borders, especially if we as a nation continue to deny the very existence of their motive to do real harm both here and abroad.  Disarming ourselves fits quite well within their game plan, too.

It’s time we come to terms with the reasons people are concerned about their right to defend themselves and why Arizona Legislators are trying to accommodate them.

It’s not extreme to allow the law-abiding to carry.  What is extreme is disarming everyone but the criminals in the name of safety.  It’s not only extreme, it’s extremely dangerous.
