Gun Control Helps Criminals: If you want to know what’s wrong with gun control then you don’t have to look much further than this story…
“As his back door was kicked in Monday afternoon, a South End homeowner – confined to his bed because of a disability – called 911 with one hand and grabbed his 9 mm Glock handgun with the other.
Within seconds, a burglar was in the bedroom and inching closer.
“He didn’t stop coming toward me until he was looking down the barrel of a 9 mm,” said the 64-year-old homeowner, who didn’t want to be identified out of fear for his safety.
The burglar, disguising his face with a handkerchief, backed off several steps and called out to someone else.
“I thought he was going to take off, but he turned back around and he said, ‘I’m going to get you,'” the homeowner said. “That’s when I shot him.”
Injured and bleeding, the burglar and his accomplice ran out of the house. Police had not found him late Monday.”
If you’re for strict control, then you’re for taking the gun out of that man’s hand and leaving him at the mercy those criminals. There are a lot of good reasons to oppose gun control, but one of the most important ones is that gun control legislation helps criminals and hurts law abiding citizens.
Of course gun control isn’t going to keep guns out of the hands of criminals –because **duh** they’re criminals — they don’t care if the law says they can’t have a handgun. So who gets hurt? The law abiding citizens who want to do the right thing. But what happens when your wife, your daughter, your mother gets trapped in dark alleyway by some leering thug? If you’re for gun control you just shrug your shoulders and hope she doesn’t get hurt ***too much***. If you’re pro-Second Amendment, you hope she pulls a handgun out of her purse, cocks it, and says “I don’t think so” while the punks who were menacing her run away in terror. That’s the difference between people who are pro-gun & people who want to take guns away from the American people.
