He wasn’t happy with us reporting this, or the fact that young people appreciate the fun and excitement of firearm ownership along with the proven benefits of firearm ownership.
He also says our name, “Guns Save Life” is “a deluded, diabolical and downright devastating slogan”.
Well, we suppose that means it’s effective at what it seeks to accomplish!
Here’s Dan’s missive:
Reprinted exactly as posted.
I read an article this morning detailing the concepts & attitudes of your organization ‘Guns Save Lives’ I have to say your beliefs & views on gun legislation and the idea that a fire arm could actually save a life is completely absurd! This stance is truly disturbing.
How on earth can you believe that a weapon designed to kill or injure could actually do more good than bad?! The article above further emphasizes this ridiculous message, you are promoting the use of guns to children, if you class yourself as a responsible parent & adult then you should clearly be doing the opposite! How old was the latest American shooter?! NOT old enough to be in possession of a firm arm is the answer to that question.
You state ‘guns are hip. Guns are cool!’ and parade a picture of a child holding a weapon, I can assure this atrocious message will not result in saving lives through the use or possession of fire arms.
What president Obama suggests is sensible, correct & something that should have been passed through congress a long time ago (Unfortunately too many brain dead Republicans take your stance so it probably won’t get passed).
He is not trying to take away your constitutional right to ‘bare arms’ he is trying to ban semi-automatic weapons which should have never been put in civilian hands in the first place.
Sure, own a riffle or pistol for security in the home – you don’t need to fire 50 shots at an intruder. In fact surely you believe you shouldn’t fire a single shot at an intruder otherwise you go against your crazy motto ‘Guns Save Lives’ – a gun in civilian hands should only ever be used as a deterrent.
Anyhow, I know you won’t change your deluded, diabolical and downright devastating slogan but I thought you should hear the words of a rational minded person in the hope that someday you will be able to see the error of your ways and concede – GUNS TAKE LIVES!!! They don’t save them…
We disagree, of course.
As for Dan? Well, our message to Dan would be that with decisions come consequences. Choosing not to avail yourself to the proven benefits of firearm ownership can lead to injury or death at the hands of criminals.
We invite Dan, if he feels so strongly about the issue, to post this sign in his front yard to proudly proclaim his opposition to guns.
Sorry, Dan. Despite what you say, you can’t change the fact that:
Guns are cool.
Guns are hip.
Guns also save life, too.
And they’re also the source of a lot of fun and excitement in the lives of their owners!
