Mark Stewart on Gun Control

 

 


Best defense against bad guys? Good guys with guns

Q: Do you support an absolute right to gun ownership?

A: Yes, all mentally competent adults have an absolute right to gun ownership. This is prudent, for the best defense when someone is trying to beat your buddy or rape your wife is a GUN. The San Bernardino Shooters, Oregon Shooter, Aurora shooter, Sandy Hook Shooters, and Charleston Shooter would have taken out no more than two innocent people had even one good protector been present and able to use a gun. The best defense when a mentally imbalanced shooter is firing at innocent people is GOOD GUYS WITH GUNS. And the best defense when a sober-but-evil terrorist has a weapon is also a clear-thinking American WITH A GUN. North America has had seven highly public terrorist shootings since 2009. To me, the absolute saddest are the three that happened at military installations: Fort Hood, the Washington Naval Shipyard and the Chattanooga Army recruitment station. These are places where in normal times our Military Police carried guns.
