Bryan Miller makes stuff up..

In his most recent ad hominem and insult laden rant.

the easy access disturbed teens have to assault guns

You can buy Armored Vehicles easily?

For pro-gunners it's about arming everyone to the teeth.

Really? Source for this besides your own imagination?

to kill as many people as possible as quickly as possible (the purpose of assault weapons,

Is that their purpose? I guess I'm using mine incorrectly then, or it's broken.

This, of course, ignores the likelihood that a general gun battle will then ensue, as none of those armed citizens will know who is a good guy and who isn't.

Like in Colorado, right? Any evidence for this or did you just make it up?

, sadly, have a little more experience with overwhelming firepower than do the pro-gunners seeking to rationalize their petty personal fears and desires by pretending that they're seeking to defend the rest of us. My only brother, FBI Special Agent Mike Miller, was one of three law enforcement officers killed (a fourth was grievously wounded) by a lone gunman wielding a concealed assault pistol at Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Headquarters in November 1994.

So you have some emotional baggage that you should seek therapy for. What does that have to do w/ the other 80 million individuals that own firearms? Oh, right. Nothing.

Seems there is a relationship between the presence of guns and the prevalence of gun violence.

And yet there isn't. There is a relationship between illegal guns held by criminals and gun violence. You don't like to hear about that though.

The secret to societal safety is not more firepower in civilian hands. Quite the opposite.

Proof of this, or just another conjecture?

(BTW: I urge readers to check out some of the 'you can't make this up' nuttiness that will undoubtedly appear in the Comments section below and has followed each of my earlier entries.

Who do you think your readers are Bryan? How many posts do you get supporting you? There's a reason for that.


Yes, you are.

One of the items I noticed was his inconsistency in the article. He's afraid that armed citizens would start an all out gun fight stopping someone like the mall shooter, but later points out that 3 trained LEOs were killed by 1 person with a concealed firearm.

Apparently, when he says you can't make it up, he means people like us--he gets to make up anything he wants
