Robyn Ringer, in her blog posting Unfettered Access to Guns Makes No Sense, says:
Restrictions must exist in regard to who can own a gun. Allowing criminals, the mentally ill, and children easy access to guns makes no sense. And restrictions must exist in regard to the types of guns that may be purchased. Allowing the ownership of guns that can shoot down airplanes or cause massive numbers of casualties in just seconds or minutes makes no sense.
It’s actually Ringer that makes no sense. If someone is allowed “unfettered access” to gasoline and matches then they should have the same access to firearms. Either you can trust them to roam the streets or they should be locked up or, in rare cases, executed. Molotov Cocktails can take out tanks but you don’t hear the anti-gun bigots trying to restrict access to gasoline and bottles. It’s just guns their irrational minds cannot tolerate. These bigots need to be answer Just One Question. But of course they can’t answer it.
