It's not about gun control, but all about control.
Probably a better chance to survive a gunshot wound or two center mass than repeated blows to the head with a Louisville Slugger...but who really cares when stopping an attack?Some just don't get it. When it comes to defending myself and mine, guns are just a courtesy to my enemy. They're a more humane way, certainly not the only or my preferred way. When it comes to that, I'll not be be inhibited by humanity.
Facts is facts. With a gun, you can shoot and they can fall but in reality, you're still just guessin'. When you can feel through your own hands, the life leaving the bad guy's body, then there's no question.
Shh... don't tell anyone, but we STILL keep a Louisville slugger close at hand...just in case...
It goes back to the premise that firearms aren't magical, protective talismans. They are mechanical objects that just work as designed.
Yeah, just ask Joseph ‘juno’ Giunta, Albert Anselmi & John Scalise. Oh wait, we're too late for that.
