Paul Craig Roberts Quote

“I don’t know why liberals want to disarm the law-abiding population, but I do know that not a single argument proffered stands the light of facts. Armed citizens deter far more crimes than the police, and far more lives are saved by the intended victim being armed than are lost in firearm accidents.”

~ Paul Craig Roberts

Houston Chronicle, Sept. 13, 1993

Liberals run on emotion and the word gun scares them to death. If they used reasoning powers they wouldn't be liberals.

When I did security work in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area we found there were 16 security guards employed here for every 1 public paid peace officer. Think of how many more private armed citizens there are here helping to keep the peace.

jim, cal, well said. Also, one needs only look to the most recent publicized trial over gun use to prove the quote's point. In a stunning reversal, the prosecution was arguing emotion while, the defense was spouting statutes, facts and law.

Absolutely. Liberals are actually statists that wish to centralize all power in the hands of government bureaucrats who will pass laws to steal from selected classes and do not want to face any resistance.

L. Hanson, Edmonton, Canada

Total and complete BS. Are you people trying to defend the Zimmerman decision? You sick f#&s. You should be ashamed of yourselves; if not for you ignorance, but for your flagrant hypocrisy.

Shame, shame, shame.

E Archer, NYC

@Hansen, you have demonstrated the quote perfectly by not offering any argument or examples of a disarmed populace being safer (as you know in Canada, there are more guns per capita than in the US and gun crime is a fraction of a percent of that of the US.) Instead of the knee-jerk name-calling how about proffering an argument?

Archer, that's because Liberal thinking is based on emotional ideology and not fact or reality...but you already knew that.

George Zimmerman did not shoot "at" Trayvon Martin until Martin had broken his nose, blackened both his eyes and was pounding his head on a concrete sidewalk yelling you gonna die MF! That according to witnesses. Trayvon Martin was a home invading, gang banging, drug using low life who should have just kept walking... Hanson, here's some "facts" about the trial...if you can handle them which I very much doubt. :
