Sarah - "Dear Anti-Gun Friend" (My Response To A Bully) © 2016 by Phillip Evans

In response to Sarah's compassionately written article toward those who are afraid of guns, a bully going only be the name of "Joe" accused her of having blood on her hands.

This is my response to him:


How dare you accuse Sarah of having blood on her hands! She has never advocated for people to use firearms for evil purposes. She merely advocates that citizens have the right to own the firearms of their choice, whether for self-defense, sport, or recreation.

We don't demonize all people who drive cars because some use them to harm and kill others. Likewise for those who own hammers, knives, baseball bats, etc.

As for so-called "assault rifles", more people are killed each year by fists and feet than all rifles combined, so get a clue, and get a life. Tools are not the problem, evil people are. Like Sarah stated, evil people will do evil regardless of the tools available to them. Ban firearms, and criminals will make homemade firearms - it's not nearly as difficult as you might think. 

The worst school mass killing in the U.S. was done with a bomb, not firearms. Do you expect common household chemicals and landscaping minerals, or gasoline to be banned because of that crime? No?

How dare you point your self-righteous finger of guilt at an innocent human being just because she enjoys her firearms and does not wish for the government to point its guns at her and confiscate them!

Percentage-wise, gun owning citizens who legally bought their firearm are less likely to shoot innocent people accidentally or commit a crime with a firearm than police are. And there are a lot of us (80-100 million) owning about 300 million firearms.

Your false accusation against Sarah is purely disgusting. You will never be able to present a shred of evidence that supports your claim that she has blood on her hands.

When it comes to evil, you are the one that is promoting the wicked idea that it is better that people not have the ability to effectively defend themselves from armed criminals.

Apparently, you believe it is better that victims' blood be shed than for them to take responsibility for their own safety. Anytime anyone defends their life with a firearm (and that happens quite often), it blows your worldview out of the water.
