The Hot Coffee Bandit and the Second Amendment

In all the arguments concerning gun control, one thing usually doesn’t come up: anything can be used as a weapon and most criminals will commit crimes even if they don’t have access to advanced weaponry. In a recent story, a man robbed a Best Western hotel with hot coffee. Police were unable to find the assailant, who made off with about four hundred and fifty dollars and a cell phone. No wonder he got away… the police probably got held up at Starbucks interrogating the barista turned arms dealer. If you can rob a hotel with coffee, what couldn’t you use?

Many domesticated Americans will say, “Yes, but you wouldn’t have the same level of violence if there weren’t guns. Someone can’t do nearly as much damage with coffee as they can with an AK-47.” Assuming you could actually ensure that criminals couldn’t get guns, I guess you’re marginally right, Mr. Hypothetical-Gun-Control-Advocate. They wouldn’t do as much damage… by themselves and in one go anyway. But gun controls cannot make the average citizen safe from the average criminal, even if the average criminal doesn’t have a gun. Because when average citizens don’t have guns, average criminals become more daring and more numerous. If you can make an easy five hundred using nothing more than a steaming cup of joe, why not, right? Now, if you are concerned that you might get a quail shot facial, you might think twice. Well, youwouldn’t, Mr. Hypothetical-Et-Cetera. You’re a decent human being, and you wouldn’t even think of robbing a Best Western. It’s so much easier to rob your rich neighbor staring down the muzzle of a Form 1040. But I digress.
