How to write an argument against gun control

The National Review has published an article titled “How to write a persuasive argument for gun control.”

In the piece, author Mike Enoch says the best way to write your own argument is to use logic. 

“We all know the truth: guns don’t kill people,” Enoch writes.

“The best way of telling the truth is to look at how guns kill people.”

Enoch is a self-described “anti-gunner,” who argues that guns are not the problem.

“A firearm is a tool.

It’s not an end in itself.

It does not kill or cause harm.

It only causes pain and death.

It is not a means to an end.” 

“It’s important to understand that the gun control debate has nothing to do with guns or guns or gun control. 

The only thing that matters is that people have to feel safe.

It has nothing, really, to do, really with guns.”

Enos piece includes a section on “the gun control issue.” 

He explains the gun ban, the assault weapons ban, and the “right to bear arms” as arguments against gun ownership. 

In his opinion, the second is the best argument for the right to bear. 

Enoch says that the “real gun control” is not guns, but the government’s attempt to regulate firearms.

“Government, and in particular the U.S. Congress, have tried to control gun ownership in this country for nearly half a century,” Enos article reads.

“But it’s not just gun control: the Second Amendment protects the right of Americans to own and use guns in self-defense, whether that’s for hunting or for protection from criminals.”

We can have good discussions about guns and guns, not gun control and gun control, but a discussion about how to protect the people in this great country.””

I want to see people use guns responsibly and protect themselves.

We can have good discussions about guns and guns, not gun control and gun control, but a discussion about how to protect the people in this great country.”
