I completely agree with Nathan Tsoi’s comments Wednesday. Fact: “there are guns in the world.” Not only can terrorists (and criminals) buy guns, but they can also make them. The knowledge base is out there. I have never researched it, but I am sure if I was determined enough, I could go out and build myself a relatively accurate gun this weekend. I do not see how, after acknowledging the reality of this and the black market, one could defend gun control. The only defense I see for gun control lobbyists would be for them to push for a skyrocketing increase in police forces via tax raises. Guns, just like nuclear weapons, will always exist and the few that have them will always be empowered over the masses that have not.
