    Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams are the two biggest enemies of the race baiting gun grabbing leftists in this country. They are both well educated black men who came from poverty to be successful in their endeavors as well as possessing an intelligence level far above most of us. Thanks for posting, but as Mr. Sowell stated, the anti's will ignore the facts that do not fit their narrative.

    well pro gunners ignore a fact too. When you ban guns or have serious restrictions on guns, gun murders *can* go down. What happens is that the overall murder rate remains basically unchanged as most murderers are going to murder no matter what.

    In the minds of anti gunners, how would gun murders *not* go down if guns were banned?

    And the reason that that line of thinking "works" (well enough for their talking points, anyway) is that "banned" equates to "disappear from society" in their minds.

    The sheer Grand Canyon-sized gulf between what a law can do by banning a gun (whatever we may mean by "banning") and the reality of removing such guns from society to the degree that a murderer cannot get one is utterly lost on those delivering and hearing these arguments.

    Banned = gone.

    Just like how heroin, cocaine, and meth are banned and are now absent from our nation.

    Right?

    tx Blackout: I don't understand your point. Anything "can" happen at any given time but that does not necessarily relate to a direct cause and effect relationship. Every living being drinks water and every living being dies. Is that a cause and effect equation?
