About

This is a liberal-leaning blog about things that interest me. That’s it. I’m an expat American living in Italy.

    Mike,

    Wanted to start off by saying I appreciate your willingness to discuss firearms and gun control so openly. Many sites aren’t that free and willing.

    Something you’ve said a couple of times has stuck with me

    I just go by what seems to make sense to me.
    What I’m going by is just common sense as I see it. What makes sense to me is fewer guns means fewer shootings.

    I’m not trying to start a fight, far from it. I’ve heard this on other sites also. My problem is that I’m on the other side. I can’t see many common sense arguments against having firearms.

    I was wondering if you could help me out by discussing, either in email or on a post, where common sense would say it’s not preferable to have firearms.

    I can think of a couple; immature young people, felons convicted of violent crimes, felons in jail, certain courtroom situations (divorce court, criminal proceedings).

    So, if you are willing, where else does common sense say it isn’t appropriate to have a firearm?

    Thanks again and I hope you will consider this an honest request to someone I feel can lucidly explain his reasoning.
