    There are other ways than shooting to protect yourself and your family. Also, is there no John Wayne-looking man in your entire family?

    What about dog insurance?

    If you want to protect your home get an alarm installation or some big lights.

    Edgar is frightened that the zombies might attack. Also, swarms of peterbald kittens might maim him.

    Luckily, a gun is effective against all of those.

    When did I ever suggest I was "genetically superior?" Intelligence has a genetic component, but your rhetoric makes it sound as if I think I am some type of Aryan superman or something. Genetics and family background should be de-emphasized in a meritocratic libertarian society.


    I'm not anti-gun or anti-second ammendment (as I have gone on and on about in rich and personal detail in this thread) I just think that it should be harder for mentally unstable people to get their hands on weapons which quickly kill many.
    That is fine, but that is not what many consider "gun control," as this thread clearly demonstrates.

    Because those would work so well against a burglar with a mossberg 500.

    That is a return to the you've got one cause they've got one argument.

    Maybe this too varies from country to country, but I have often heard that - at least here- professional burglars hardly ever carry firearms (in order to avoid an escalation of violence if they should be confronted with the homeowner). If they don't immediately threaten the homeowner, he or she has no right to shoot at them just for breaking and entering, so nobody gets hurt. At least that's the idea.
