...or maybe it's just evidence that he has sufficient IQ to know that laws are just words, and won't prevent someone from becoming a killer any more than "Just say no" ended the drug problem. I could as easily argue that for you to propose laws without any evidence that those laws will protect more people than they harm is also criminally irresponsible.
I, like most who support the right to use appropriate defense technologies, am most enraged by the suggestion that we somehow approve of their misuse, or don't want to reduce their misuse. Continuing to imply that we do is willfully dishonest, and will not help your arguments. Continuing to argue about motives is a waste of time.
Gun banners may achieve some small measure of credibility when they show that they are able to argue rationally and honestly.
