Scott Adams is a funny cartoonist and an amazing political philosopher. In this column
he nails why there can never be any 'commonsense' gun control in America.
On average, Democrats (that’s my team*) use guns for shooting the innocent. We call that crime.
On average, Republicans use guns for sporting purposes and self-defense.
But we do know that race and poverty are correlated. And we know that poverty and crime are correlated. And we know that race and political affiliation are correlated. Therefore, my team (Clinton) is more likely to use guns to shoot innocent people, whereas the other team (Trump) is more likely to use guns for sporting and defense.
You don't see the arguments for gun-seizing and gun retention better expressed than that.
Scott Adams is a pretty smart guy. (In addition to being very funny.)ReplyDelete
There's a great you tube of him being challenged by Steve Pastis who draws Pearls Before Swine. He covers the bases.Delete
