The problem with criminals is that they have all the guns!

Beretta Tomcat 

As a card carrying member of the NRA, a one-time Texan and generally a believer that people kill people, not guns, I am very upset about the enormous amount of anti-gun rhetoric that I have been reading in the aftermath of yesterday’s tragedy in Virginia.

Living in New Jersey, a state where I’m sure more criminals own guns than law abiding citizens, I feel as though I am surrounded by people who are so naïve that I often wonder if they still believe in Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and Peter Pan.

If law abiding citizens carried guns more often, rampaging psychotics like this young man in Virginia might just be “taken out” well before such a huge number of innocent people could have ever been killed.

When criminals decide to strike, knowing that their prey is unarmed and otherwise helpless only emboldens them and puts them in a position of ultimate power.

As Lord (John Emerich Edward Dalberg) Acton states….

“Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Why do we think that keeping guns out of the hands of law abiding individuals makes an ounce of difference relative to what criminals might do?

In my opinion, we need guns in the hands of properly trained people to protect all of us from situations like this!
