The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth
Buzz from The Mouth of Madness rebuts an article by Tom Plate in which he states:
These students were not killed by a Korean, they were killed by a 9 mm handgun
and a .22-caliber handgun.
Plate relates his own experience of being robbed at gunpoint and how his "rapid response" of surrendering was the best thing to do.
Buzz eloquently responds...
Mr. Plate, I am glad you choose not to own a firearm. You are one of many
American citizens that would be unable to use one properly. Too timid, too
defeatist, too meek to defend yourself. In your hands, a gun would be a
liability. Don’t pretend that you portray everyone though. There are men in this
country that are able to defend themselves, and even those around them.
Training, discipline, and intelligence are necessary to properly wield a firearm
in a dangerous situation. Believe me, I am not suggesting we arm the entire
populace. No, there are too many out there like you, Mr. Plate. Don’t assume
everyone should think like you, I for one am glad that many of us do not.
People either incapable or unwilling to defend themselves should be the ones we fear most when they try to impose their cowardly beliefs on the rest of us.
