Do they just not read history books? I live in a fairly liberal town, college town, so the younger people tend to lean very hard to the Left. I was at a party recently and got into two firearm conversations. The first was a guy proclaiming handguns should be banned. So I asked why. He stated that handguns only kill people. I asked about carrying to defend yourself. His response, get this, was that handguns aren't powerful enough to actually kill people because home intruders are usually big people so they serve no purpose. I didn't laugh, I just asked well if that's true then why do the only kill people? He didn't know how to respond. I gave up at the point, if he believed that then there is no discussion to be had. Second conversation was about assault rifles, a guy proclaimed they should be banned, I asked about a citizens right to own high power rifles in case of Government tyranny. He stated that if the Government choose to take over we would all be screwed and having a gun would not matter. I couldn't believe these people, they say this stuff with a straight face. Absolutely clueless it's scary.
