Some day, I hope to have Tam’s mastery of analogy:
I am sick and tired of being told “But if criminals didn’t have guns, then you wouldn’t need them either, right? Wouldn’t you rather live in a world without guns?”
Putting aside the pie in the sky impracticality of this, I like to point out to these people that we already had a world without guns; it was called the Middle Ages. It was a peaceful utopia where the lion lay down with the lamb… any time it wanted to, and the lamb just shut up and took it, if the lamb knew what was good for it.
No, thank you. I do not want to live in a world without guns.
