“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one.” – Thomas Jefferson, 1764
This argument is so tiresome and the logic so overwhelming – law abiding citizens with guns are not the problem. If liberals disarm citizens then they will fall prey to criminals don’t care about city handgun restrictions. If Chicago wants to limit the number of guns on the street, start locking up those who use them in the commission of a crime.
With liberals it’s hard to tell who they believe is the real criminal; the thug or the law abiding citizen.
