Closing The Loopholes

I just ran into a great piece outlining a few mistakes that pro-2nd amendment types make when arguing with anti-2nd amendment types. I have made of few of these mistakes myself, and I've recongized a few others when I heard them. Check out the whole list and you'll be better prepared to defend your views. Here's an example:

THEY SAY: “We’d be better off if no one had guns.”

WE SAY: “You can never succeed at that, criminals will always get guns.” (FLAW: the implication here is that if you could succeed at eliminating all guns, it would be a reasonable plan.)

WE SHOULD SAY: “So, you want to institute a system where the weak and elderly are at the mercy of the strong, the lone are at the mercy of the gang. You want to give violent criminals a government guarantee that citizens are disarmed. Sorry, that’s unacceptable. Better we should require every citizen to carry a gun.”
Lots more where that came from.
