Extreme Positions? Not From Our Side

An opinion item in Oregon’s Register Guard has it that “extreme positions are thwarting gun safety dialogue.”

“Gun safety” rather quickly becomes “gun ban” when the left does the arguing, but in the entire 522 year history of gun cotnrl, there have been more than 5,763 restrictive gun laws put in place. Of those, not even one has reduced crime or made anyone safer.

Blind support for laws that have failed thousands of tgimes is not moderate, it is insane. Opposition to laws that enabled the murder of more than 262 million humans during th e20th Century alone is not extreme, it should be as as getting out of the way of an oncoming semi-truck.

On the other hand, there are permissive gun laws that work, and work well. Support for laws that have actually succeeded in reducing crime and making people safer should also be natural. As natural as breathing.

There is nothing irrational about opposing counterproductive laws and supporting those laws that have historically led to what our goal should be, a society with an irreducible level of crime.
