Another Very Bad Anti-Gun Meme

If you’re patient, you can find all the bad arguments you can handle.

Since I write for a living, I’ll never be out of a job. All I need to do is spend about ten minutes on Facebook to mine all the material I’ll ever need.

It’s like the Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” but without the cold, broken equipment, and pittance in found gold.

Facebook is a goldmine of bad thinking. Here’s one bid of anti-gun “logic” I had not seen until today:

A kid on the playground throws a rock at another kid on the playground. The teacher gives rocks to all the kids, since, after all only a good kid with a rock can stop a bad kid with a rock.

All the kids had access to the rocks. Only one kid picked up a rock and threw it at another kid. The problem isn’t the rocks; the problem is with the kid who threw the rock.

Was there a playground rule that the kids were are not permitted to throw rocks? Yes. Did the rule stop the one kid from throwing rocks? No.

If rocks are used to throw and hurt people, does this mean that rocks should be banned? The first murder was accomplished without a gun (Gen. 4:8).
