Just One Question

Joe Huffman has been asking Just One Question for a while.

I've been terribly remiss in not repeating the question, but I'll rectify that now:

"Can you demonstrate just one time, one place, throughout all of human history, where restricting the access of handheld weapons to the average person made them safer?"


Next time you hear, or read about, someone advocating stricter restrictions on gun ownership, ask that question. Just One Question.

Just one simple question. A question any anti-gun bigot should have a ready answer to, if they've studied the history of gun bigotry at all.

Just one simple question. Should be a simple answer... but it's not. It's not simple because it has no answer.

There is not one demonstrable time or place, anywhere in human history, where the restriction of access to handheld weapons to the average person made them safer.

Never.

That's why Joe's "Just One Question" is so powerful. You ask that of an anti-gun bigot, and they'll change the subject. Repeat the question, and they'll call you names, and change the subject again. Repeat the question again, and you're likely to be escorted away, if you're questioning a public official. If you're asking an individual gun bigot to answer the Question, likely THEY will go away, rather than try to answer the Question. Because it has no answer, other than NEVER.

Joe is keeping the heat on. The rest of us need to also, and this is a pretty easy way to do so.
