"Guns Aren't Needed!"
That's what Doughtery County Assistant district Attorney Cortney Elam thinks. Not for shooting sports, nor for self defense. She told a crowd at the Albany “Crime Stopper's' meeting that 51% of the guns in existence are in the United States and less than 10% of guns stolen are ever recovered. That's important to her, how? Notice all her figures are based on LEGAL guns, which means they don't count the ILLEGAL guns out there. She says that “Less guns means a safer world.” Which is entirely NOT true. It completely ignores the fact that the only guns that cause trouble are in the hands of ILLEGAL gun owners, who will not be affected by gun confiscation, and are the criminals of society. Then how do we defend ourselves? How stupid is her opinion? I don't know what she bases her opinion on, but, like all anti-gun fools, she is WRONG. The ONLY real defense against all the illegal guns out there in the hands of criminals is MORE guns in the hands of honest, law-abiding people. But people like her will never hear about that. Ttheir minds are made up, so don't confuse them with facts. (Albany Herald)
