I have and always will be an avid supporter of gun and self defense rights. I am an NRA member, a GOA member, a CCRKBA member, and a member of SAM,[Sportsman's Alliance of Maine]. I hold concealed carry licenses that presently allow me to carry in 30 states. I have written many letters to editors etc., on gun related issues. One question I have asked over and over, and have never received an answer to, or even an acknowledgment goes like this: Why is it that when a gun is used by a good person for a good reason, whether or not that person is a police officer,or an ordinary citizen coming to his or her or someone else's defense, and their action saves a life, or lives, or prevents a crime from being successfully committed, the PERSON gets the credit. But when a gun is used by a criminal to commit a crime, the GUN gets the blame? I would love to hear comments on this.
