As for the old trope that a gun actually makes you less safe and they make shoot yourself or something you love, that is simply untrue. It’s an old wives’ tale that doesn’t hold up to the data. I know it is cherished Pablum from the left, but it still is not at all true. What nonsense! Look at the freakin’ stats!
I was once asked why I posted all the stuff about guns helping people, when it is common that people shoot their own kids or themselves if they have a gun in the home. I said “Uh, because is not true?” Yeah, that’s why… The questionner was a victim of “the old Jedi mind trick.” Still might be, but I sure hope not.
