Columnist explains anti-gunners' mindsets.
Anti-gunners are continuing their efforts to pass various gun-control laws. As J.R. Labbe wrote with regards to the latest efforts by Representative Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) and Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) to ban certain magazines, “This latest manifestation of the ‘do-something syndrome’ surprises nary one gun-rights supporter and explains why sales of high-capacity mags have jumped in recent weeks.”
Labbe goes further suspecting that many gun control advocates are of the opinion that the police will respond in a dangerous situation, whereas many who own guns “don't want to leave it to a local deputy to make it to the house in time to stop the intruder who is jimmying the window to their kids' bedroom.”
Labbe also adds, “In a self-defense situation, I don't ever want to be in a fair fight.” Here at SOF, we agree.
