Default Stupid, stupid, stupid article on gun control

I just read an article and am tearing my hair out. I cannot believe people can be this stupid.

Some anti-gun dude wrote this massive article on why guns are evil, why gun control works, why the laws aren't strict enough and why we are all dumb little children who should give up our choices.

He wrote an article with 21 "reasons" (read: illogical, emotionally-driven crap) why guns should be regulated more or outright banned.

Not surprising at all, but still gets me mad.

I'm going to pick this guy apart by refuting everything he says. Started on it here:

http://www.banforksandspoons.com/21-reasons-why-gun-control-works-refuted-part-1/

The article he wrote is huge. Going to post new part every few days refuting his nonsense.

Important that we let people like them know what we think of their ludicrous attempts at restricting our freedom. Just read the article - it's everything silly and stupid about anti-gunners rolled into one overly long article.

Feel free to comment on the article as it progresses. Feedback is welcome.

It must be true. It's posted on the internet.

Sure you can.

We elected BO not once but twice.

We have the worst economy in recent memory and 50% of American thinks BO is doing a good job.

WA just passed I-594 by popular vote.

Need I go on?

WA and OR were Kalifornicated. They should try it in Mexico. Stupidity is contagious.

There are too many points in his column to spend time refuting. We live in the same country I suppose; he just sees things differently.

I personally do not think this is about how he "see things". He is in full indoctrination mode not "here is my opinion" mode. This is agenda based, not information and opinion based.

There is an article in the July/August issue of "American Handgunner" titled "Gun Rights" by Alan Korwin. Reading it should lift your spirits and give you all the ammo needed to refute that article. You may be able to access the article online from the magazine or maybe Alan Korwin has a website?

Ok, so the original post was off-the-wall. The responses were no different. Two sides of the same coin.

I like the responses.

Some may think people like this should be ignored. I think it's important to call them out, argue with them, point out their fallacious argument, because if we don't, people who are on the fence about guns may start believing in his madness, illogical conclusions, lies and emotional appeals to restrict our freedoms. More anti-gun fodder for the pool.

Clearly, this guy (the anti-gun article author) won't change his mind. That's pretty much like trying to get Bloomberg to admit he's a blathering, jackass statist. Won't happen.

So I'm not writing it for him. I'm writing the refutation for those still on the fence who can be persuaded to see reason, logic and common sense.

Maybe you guys can point out weaknesses in his argument via the comments or for next parts in the article.
