According to the Faulty Logic of the Gun Lobby, Nothing Should Be Illegal

We hear it all the time- if guns are banned, only outlaws will have guns.  If bump stocks are outlawed, only outlaws will have bump stocks.

By that logic, then, nothing should be illegal.

If abortions are banned, only outlaws will have abortions.  If meth is outlawed, only outlaws will get meth.  If murder is outlawed, only outlaws will commit murder.  If pedophilia is outlawed, only outlaws will commit pedophilia.  If beastiality is outlawed, only outlaws will commit beastiality.

If church shootings are outlawed, only outlaws will commit church shootings.  If lynching is outlawed, only outlaws will lynch black folk.  If speeding is outlawed, only outlaws will speed.  If voter fraud is outlawed, only outlaws will commit voter fraud.

If assassination is outlawed, only outlaws will assassinate politicians.  If identity theft is outlawed, only outlaws will commit identity theft.

By now, I presume, you see the point.  The gun lobby needs a better argument than ‘if guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns’ because it’s false logic.

Some things should be outlawed, because they are immoral and destructive.  Try to think a bit, gunners.
