Fun to write

This is a response to a comment on a Newsweek editorial.
Blaming the NRA or guns on inner city violence is like blaming the spoon Rosie O'Donnell uses on her being fat. Let's put the blame where it belongs on the black market and drugs.
You might also want to take another look at Dred Scott as one of the primary cites was the following: "It would give to persons of the negro race, ...the right to enter every other State whenever they pleased, ...the full liberty of speech in public and in private upon all subjects upon which its own citizens might speak; to hold public meetings upon political affairs, and to keep and carry arms wherever they went." Not exactly a rousing endorsement for gun control, rather it highlights the fact gun control is racist and very often sexist and classist. Just look at all the people who would ban guns ensuring the rapist has no problem with his victim.
Let's talk about those European gun laws a little, Nazi Germany disarmed the Jews in 1938, 6 million die in the next 7 years and 14 million assorted non supermen with them. When we expand our look at history to Asia we find more examples. The Turks kills a 1.5 million Armenian Christians. Lenin kills a few million dissidents but Stalin kicks it up a notch and kills 35 to 70 million people, none of whom are allowed the right to arms. As Lenin said one man with a gun can control a hundred without. Mao kills 50 million Chinese citizens, Pol Pot kills 2 million in the real killing fields both in pursuit of a collectivist utopia. We aren't blameless in the genocide sweepstakes either; we killed millions of Native Americans and many thousands of blacks none of which were allowed firearms by law. After reconstruction we killed thousands more and as usual laws were created specifically to keep some minority from the means of effective self defense. Gun control more often than not leads to genocide in numbers that leave regular crime and criminals ashamed of their inefficiency.
