Quote of the day–The Minnesota Daily

What do people even need handguns for? Protection, right? However, if no one could buy or carry a handgun legally, no one would need a handgun to protect themselves.

[I’m thinking 6th grade.  Maybe as high as the 8th grade.  The thinking can’t be attributed to someone beyond that level.  What about people that don’t need a weapon because of their size, or other weapons such as knives, clubs, or illegally obtained firearms?  Whoever wrote this needs to grow up and answer Just One Question.–Joe]

  1. The correct statement is of course; “If no one could buy or carry a handgun legally, then only criminals and tyrants would buy and carry handguns, therefore horrible mischief would ensue.”

    We need them every hour.

    And this is to say nothing (and why would anyone, after all, in this political environment dominated by ignorance?) of the U.S. Constitution.

  2. To quote Tim Lambert:

    “If the law disarms attackers, then it can make self defence possible where it would have been impossible if the attacker was armed.”

    Rephrased so accurately by Sarah of Carnaby Fudge:

    “If the law disarms citizens, then it can make self defence impossible where it would have been possible if the citizen was armed.”

    I’d say… SIXTH grade.

    And college professors.
