More Guns in Virginia

From: "Chris Brose" <krleese@cox-internet.com>

Subject: more guns in Virginia

[Here's one I sent to the Letters to the Editor at the Virginia Pilot in response to the 11/27 editorial about more guns being purchased and carried. http://www.pilotonline.com/opinion/op1127edc.html
Letters are sent through the website, so no header. -author]


The writer of the anonymous 11/27 editorial is truly paranoid. He(she) assumes that (a) people are buying guns because of terrorism, and (b) more guns make it more likely that that traffic incidents will escalate into mass murders. Not.

The 9/11 attacks made a lot of people face their own mortality, but few people are getting guns now for the purpose of fighting terrorists. People have simply realized that they are responsible for their own safety and are being more proactive.

And that traffic incident nonsense has been tried in every state where concealed carry has been debated. And in more than 30 states where concealed carry is legal, such escalations HAVE NEVER HAPPENED. So fear of such escalation is irrational... making the author paranoid.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again. EDWARD GIBBON [On ancient Athens]
