A couple years ago, a Milwaukee man was charged with discharging a shotgun in a rural area. His lawnmower wouldn’t start and in a fit of anger, he shot it. Yes, he brutally murdered his lawnmower. As the man approached with intent to kill, the lawnmower’s fate was sealed. Left-wing liberal mentality had legislated an unreasonable waiting period for gun ownership and hence the defenseless lawnmower could not fight back.
Could this tragedy have been avoided if lawnmowers had been given the right to carry concealed weapons? Where do we draw the line between an individual’s right to slaughter lawnmowers and justified self defense? I never did understand the delicate nuances of turf law.
It is a documented fact that guns do not kill people. Usually, it’s something like a 165 grain hunk of lead propelled through your body at 980 feet per second. The gun is simply an innocent bystander.
There are several hundred federal regulations on firearms and thousands of weapons-related statutes on the books. You’d think that should be enough to dissuade casual use of gunpowder, but more than 30,000 people are killed each year by firearms in the United States. Gun laws just don’t seem to work. We don’t need more gun laws. What we need is fewer stupid people.
