Over the past few weeks I’ve been asked to comment on quite a few anti-gun “news” articles. It is notable how many have not been published after talking the writer through the logic of the situation or dispelling a false premise. In one case a reporter asked what could be done to keep a person from possessing a firearm who has not been convicted of any crime. My response was simple…
“A person charged with a violent or felony crime can be prohibited from possessing arms as a condition of bail. If someone is to be permanently deprived of a civil right, they must be convicted of a crime or found mentally defective by a court. Due process of law is a cornerstone of our justice system.”
Often an article is completely revised or just never published once you convince the writer that their initial premise is faulty.
