It's June, and I'm almost out of school completely. For my English final, we were told to make a presentation based on any important topic in the world today. I, of course, chose gun control. My teacher is one of those free hippie types, so I knew she probably wouldn't agree with my beliefs too much. I was right. In my presentation, I mentioned Virginia Tech and how there would have been a different outcome if anyone inside the building was armed. My teacher hated this, and she procedded to tell me how the armed security guards would have been enough to prevent the attack, "but there was a lack of communication inside the school". Bull****, right? Anyway, after I was done, she told me how you are 60-70% more likely to kill or injure a friend or family member with a gun inside the home than an intruder. Apparently she thought that every gun owner is a dumb redneck and keeps their weapon loaded in a shoebox in the closet. I know she's full of crap, but are there any facts to back this up? The only explanation I could think of is that your family members are in your house all the time, intruders, not so much. Comments?
