You left out murders using handguns, which are the most common weapons used in homicides. Funny that you'd do that. Wouldn't be because your argument doesn't hold water, would it? Knives, hammers, cars, airplanes, concrete blocks and countless other objects can be (and are) used in murders, but these objects have other uses that justify their existence. Besides, when it's feasible, they're modified or restricted in order to reduce their use in crimes. Only guns, which are designed specifically to kill, seem to be exempt. That's nuts.

When faced with gun control laws, the law abiding citizen has no choice other than to disarm or become an outlaw, but people with bad intentions are faced with no such moral dilemma. That's why the best friend of a rapist or a potential Adam Lanza is the gun control advocate who's working tirelessly to insure that his targets can't adequately defend themselves.
