I think the thrust of our argument should be that a gun is a deterrent to those who would do us harm. When that deterrent is absent violent crime flourishes. Liberals admit this when they refuse to back up their rhetoric by putting up a gun-free zone sign on their homes. The gun-free zone is, in fact, a magnet to lunatic mass- murderers looking to secure their place in history. Given the facts I think liberals can be defeated by putting forward the charge that liberals don’t mind sacrificing a few more children on the altar of Progressivism if they can exploit the tragedy for their own selfish ends.
