Default Countering Gun Control

Put articles, essays, and resources here that we can use to counter the gun control arguments. This is not the place to debate gun control. Just post links to resources we can use to counter it.

Here are a couple articles I came across today.

Thomas Sowell - Invincible Ignorance
http://townhall.com/columnists/thomassowell/2012/12/18/invincible-ignorance-n1468784/page/full/

Active Shooters in Schools - The Enemy is Denial
http://www.policeone.com/active-shooter/articles/2058168-Lt-Col-Dave-Grossman-to-cops-The-enemy-is-denial/

Please. I'm on my phone so I cannot do it, but I would appreciate if someone would put up the YouTube link to 'Penn & Teller gun control is BS'.
The entire 30 minute clip is up.

These are two well thought out articles that make sense, and will never have copies run off, and be passed out at anti-gun meetings

I am by no means an expert. I don't write particularly well. But I am passionate about 2nd Amendment Rights. I have posted a editorial (don't know what else to call it) on my Facebook page that lets people know how I feel. It is blunt.

I am Nick Feige. I am from Louisville, Kentucky.

I am Pro-gun.

Excellent, must see TV for anti-gun protesters before being issued an official anti-gun poster and joining an anti-gun cluster-Fu** protest march. Get the facts right out there!
