Zero Guns = Zero Crime?

Patrick at "Where Angels Fear to Tread" highlights a winning quote from Brady Campaign/Protect Minnesota Board Member Joan Peterson. In it she proclaims that criminals COULD NOT commit crimes w/o a gun:
gang mem­bers, drug car­tels, felons, rob­bers and those who, with­out a gun, could not do their jobs.
That's right. The first crimes were committed w/ the invention of the firearm. There have been no beatings, stabbings, poisonings, robberies, etc. w/o the use of a firearm.

They really are this deranged about guns.

The only way that all the guns would be gone from criminal hands would be if she uses a magic wand that she's been hiding all this time. She lives in an alternate reality.

Frankly, I do not know where to begin a debate with someone like this who is crazy insane.

They're not deranged, they are perfectly functional sociopaths. They know they can lie their asses off and simply delete any time someone posts the truth on their pages.

I can't tell you how many times I read her post before I decided to post the comment. I just couldn't believe I was reading what I was reading.

At least she is finally starting to tell the truth. She only has a problem with law-abiding citizens and can't understand why they would need a gun. Criminals she gets completely.

p.s. Thanks for the linkage.

At best, Joan is a person with very limited world experience, and no grasp of history. More likely, she's just a fool.

We seemed to have glossed over the whole idea that she considers: "gang mem­ber, drug car­tel, felon, rob­ber", to be JOBS.

That girl ain't right in the head.

She can move to a gun free utopia. How far away is England from Minnesota?

So, Cain DIDN'T rise up and kill Abel? That's just so much hooey?

Being a gang member, drug pusher, felon or robber is not a "job". The underlying assumptions in thinking that these are just regular people going about their daily work, earning a living and providing for their families, is outrageous.

"Why, evil gunnies, do you want to hurt and threaten my precious babies who are just trying to do their jobs? You are so mean, not wanting to be robbed and raped."
