How are guns making us safer?
If Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, George Washington and our other founding fathers could see the way that guns are used now, do you think they'd still believe that gun ownership for all is a good idea? Think about the gun deaths you've read about in the news recently, including the two children who were killed here in Washington state and the numerous mass murders. Do you imagine that any of the above would be anything other than shocked and horrified?
The NRA propaganda says that gun ownership for all makes the U.S. a safer place. How many people were saved by NRA members in the Virginia Tech Massacre? Zero. How many were saved by NRA members during the recent shooting spree in Colorado? Zero. How many victims were saved from any other gun-related tragedy in recent memory by NRA members? I can't think of a single instance in which an NRA member stepped forward to rescue anybody in such a situation.
If the NRA is claiming that its members are defending our citizens, why don't we ever see them do it?
