The right to self defense, while pretty much a recognized right, doesn't say you can defend yourself with a gun.
This is true, but if it is life or death no one is going to be worried about breaking a law if it means they will live.
please tell me I don't need to live through every single time a gun is legally used to shoot someone or somebody is going to start posting threads of every time a firearm is discharged illegally.
Guess which sides will have more threads?
quote:the right of every American to own the pistol this woman had and used has been upheld and there is no threat to change this. No one is arguing this point so yes this is a strawman. It's a nonissue.
Straw man? What about self defense laws in England? NYC and Chicago?
