Guns and the New York Times: Why shouldn't Americans be able to defend themselves?

Quote:Guns and the New York Times: Why shouldn't Americans be able to defend themselves?

By Dr. John R. Lott Jr.

With Somali terrorists threatening this past weekend to attack the Mall of America, the nation’s largest mall, the debate over allowing citizens to defend themselves has heated up again.

Gun control advocates just can’t accept the fact that concealed handgun permit holders are incredibly law-abiding. The New York Times’ recent attack on permit holders is typical. It is filled with triple-counting of legitimate self-defense cases. Murders or suicides by permit holders are blamed on guns, even when no gun was involved. In point of fact, permit holders are incredibly law-abiding. Some new evidence puts things in perspective.

Lott makes some very good points though.

It's the "New York state of mind."

Michael Bloomberg, like the Times, is only a symptom.

New Yorkers, at least those who vote and control politics, truly believe that the NYPD will protect them.

They are used to having things done for them, and paying to have things done. Got a leak under the sink? Call the super! Need a room painted? Call a painter! Don't fix it or do it yourself.

Need to get to work? Get the subway! Or a bus! Or a cab or car service! Don't drive yourself.

It's a whole different mentality.

Super, or cops, or cab, or subway doesn't come?

Then kvetch about it! But don't do it yourself!

It is my hope that those who clamor the loudest for a totalitarian state are the ones who bear the worst results of the atrocities they so desperately wanted.
