The National Rifle Association has long perpetuated the myth that Americans are under grave danger from hardened criminals who want to steal their property and exterminate their families.
Yeah, just the other night Wayne came crawling through an open window just to remind me people are out to kill my family, and I should check my gun just in case it’s a real predator.. And naturally, no tale about gun owners would be complete without the anti-gunners mentioning our patron saint, according to them, Timothy McVeigh.
Faced with a movement that is at death’s door, all they have left is anger and lashing out. I almost feel sorry for them. I also really think this passage is fun:
According to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, only 87 Americans were murdered during burglaries in 2008, despite the fact that only one out of every three American households now has a firearm.
Think maybe those two things might have something to do with each other? Could be, since the US has a much lower rate of burglary while the homeowner is home than most of the rest of the world.
