that's like saying your risk of dieing in a fiery auto crash drops if you dont use a car.
But, but, but she had called 911 and police were on the way to her house. She's supposed to be safe now that she's dialed the cops. Why did she think it necessary to shoot him?
This is a marxist (if not outright marxist) leaning administration. The fact that a mom in Georgia, or anywhere else in America had to use deadly force to protect herself and her children does not matter to them, other than as an oppertunity to demonize the so-called "Guns and Bible" crowd (BHO emphasis not mine). Most free thinking Americans (yes there are a few)instinctively understand that the goal of the radicals in this administration is eventual confiscation of all privately owned weapons.
I would argue that 'Fast and Furious' was a backdoor (literally) effort to create a scenario where the government could make the argument that we need a ban on all weapons. Modus Operandi......BHO starts with a ban on privately owned assault weapons....then he works his way down to handguns and shotguns. Simple.
My hope is that freedom loving Americans who believe in 2nd Admendment and the right to defend yourself against intruders (and a tyranical government) will rise up to stop this assault on the 2nd Admendment.
We had better.....
... you bought the car specifically to stop someone else kidnapping you, throwing you in the back of the car, then lighting the car on fire. And you had no other practical use for the car. Then it would be exactly like that.

In the meantime, the total risk of dying by homicide or suicide is significantly higher in a house with a gun:
Does it make you guys feel better to create this straw man liberal who opposes a person's right to self defense? Have you seen any of these liberals on this board? You're arguing with people who don't exist on this board.
Both have merit. But at this point the second amendment trumps either side.
Nothing trumps the right to self-defense.
