How's This For a Pro-Gun Argument?

Ever since Newtown and Oregon went down, the talk about gun control, assault weapons, crime rates in Aussie, the UK, etc., has quite seriously caused me to suffer from emotional and physical stress.

Gun control can't possibly be good if the thought of it causes harmless teenagers stress, right?

Makes about as much sense as some of the arguments for gun control.

I don't think that using the gun banner argument against them will get anyone anywhere. I will say stressing over it is a waste of time.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

The antis would say that if you are stressed that is all the more reason to ban guns. Seriously, though the idea of gun bans scares me and sort of depresses me when I think of the general direction this nation seems to be headed. But I felt that way after the elections of 1976, 1992, and 2008. Guess which party affiliation I follow? I don't know why, though, both parties suck. When I get depressed thinking of politics, I blow it off and think about what really matters to me, family and friends.
This is my gun. There are many like her, but this one is mine.

I'm not old. I'm CLASSIC!

I'm not really seeing Law and/or Civil Rights discussion here.
