If you only have one leg how the hell are you supposed to run away? If you’re wheelchair bound how are you supposed to duke it out with someone ablebodied? Anti-gunners don’t care. In their world perhaps Americans with physical impediments don’t exist or don’t matter, but in the real world those people are frequently victimized.
[Many have posted this already however this strikes a chord with me. My father-in-law is a below the knee amputee. My wife has radial nerve palsy which limits her use of her right hand. Lastly I had the muscular equivalent of a total hip replacement after my auto wreck. While I can run, I can not run far, fast, or for long. Swimming is a different story, but the impact from running starts to send sharp pain through the area they cut up.
The CSGV, Brady Bunch, and every other anti-gun organization out there want to disarm the American public for their safety. When in reality they are doing nothing but making sure people lack the tools and ability to fight back. With a firearm my wife stands a chance to be able to fight back against someone who is considerably larger than she is. She can effectively defend herself despite her disability. I have been in fist fights, they’re not fun are extremely nasty and the winner is usually the person who is the strongest. It is the ultimate in might makes right. Just because you’re right doesn’t mean you’re going to win a fist fight, and if you have any disability, it is going to count against you.
The Brady Bunch is claiming their laws help make us safer, yet when you actually analyze the statistics, it shows that is anything but true. –B]
