What a stupid rhetorical question. yes, I fear being murdered by a Decent person. And so does every gun owner who buys one on the reason of self defense. If you talk to lunatics they think they are decent people. They can rationalize any act to be allowed in their world view. Dehumanize your opponents and decent people do all sorts of nasty things.

(1764 Letter and speech from T. Jefferson quoting with approval an essay by Cesare Beccari)

And, as a gun owner I do not fear decent people, I prepare for lunatics. I am very glad that hundreds of thousands of decent people carry guns so that I am that much safer.
From the moment Americans learned of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre last Friday, the entire left -- editorialists, columnists, broadcasters, politicians -- used the occasion to promote one idea: gun control.

For the left, the primary reason for just about all American gun murders is the availability of guns.

I have no interest in debating gun control here. I only wish to ask the left one question: We have a massive system of drug control laws. Yet, the left is the first to argue that the war on drugs has been a failure. And whether or not one deems...
