Family Security Matters
We want guns when seconds count and police are minutes away. Gun owners support police, but know they cannot be everywhere all the time, so we protect ourselves. Gun buy-back programs don’t make the community safer. They’re feel-good programs for anti-gun people. Only law-abiding people are going to turn in guns. No bad guys will, so what’s the result? Not a safer community, because the number of bad guys with guns stays the same but there’s a net loss of potential good guys with them.
Bad guys aren’t going to register their guns either, nor will background checks stop them because they don’t buy their guns legally. Why would government want a registry of good guys with guns? So it can confiscate them should it decide to? We need armed good guys because Wayne Lapierre was absolutely right when he said: “The only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
