You do your argument no favors by misrepresenting my position. I support the right to keep a gun at home for self protection.
First of all, my argument needs no favors.. It's like a fence post set in concrete.
Secondly, we all know you are for allowing our government to infringe in whatever way they see fit our enshrined right to bear arms. Your proclaimed stance of a narrowly defined right to keep a pistol in the closet is just a tool you use to deflect criticism.
You know as well as anyone that giving any ground on this issue leads to an inevitable end.
I don't own a single handgun. Shall I use that to deflect any accusations of my being a gun nut? I don't need to, because I do not care what anyone thinks of my defense of barring the government any ability whatsoever to infringe the right of American citizens to own firearms and ammunition.
Now, on the topic of whether you should have even brought attention to this story, have a look at this..
in reality among all child accidental deaths nationally, firearms were involved in 1.1 percent, compared to motor vehicles (41 percent), suffocation (21 percent), drowning (15 percent), fires (8 percent), pedal cycles (2 percent), poisoning (2 percent), falls (1.9 percent), environmental factors (1.5 percent), and medical mistakes (1 percent). Since the difference between accidental deaths due to medical mistakes (1 percent) and accidental deaths due to firearms (1.1 percent) is only 0.1 percentage points, perhaps we should consider a ban on pediatricians along with the ban they propose on firearms and large-capacity magazines.
Read and weep.. Where is your concern for tragic drownings, suffocations, etc.. ? hmmmmmm?
Agenda, agenda, agenda.. Pathetic.
