    A proposed federal law to outlaw all guns would be more effective at disarming law-abiding citizens than at disarming the criminals who abuse them. If guns were outlawed, the criminals would not stop carrying guns, but the good, law-abiding citizens would. It would do nothing about the illegally obtained handguns in the possession of criminals. In The NRA is Right, Josh Sugarmann states that "One tenet of the National Rifle Association's faith has always been that handgun controls do little to s...

    When an individual commits a crime the legal system prosecutes the criminal and ultimately incarcerates him. The very foundation of such a sequence of events is meant to degrade the offender and remove any social rights he had while on the outside. For example, prisoners have this vague notion that they are entitled to any basic rights while in prison. This concept has outraged law-abiding, upstanding citizens for decades. Prisoners are sent to prison or jail because they committed a crime, some...

    An Argument Against Gun Control As long ago as 1789, the creators of the Constitution realized the importance of guns in American society.

No loopholes, or legal caches exist in this statement. The Founding Fathers allow for no restriction of the private ownership of firearms. Yet, in recent years anti-gun politicians hav...

    Gun control isn't about guns its about control. Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants, they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. This is the premise that a nationally known organization, the NRA stands behind. They believe that our forefathers included ...
