The law has the appearance of morality and this woman obviously looks to her source of power to validate right and wrong. So, she confuses legal/illegal with issues relating to personal responsibility, as if government must always specify the entire set of rules about the use of something that can injure or kill. This is the same type of world view that causes the instruction book for a kitchen range to have multiple pages of warnings including “CAUTION: YOU CAN BURN YOURSELF!” or my favorite- if you child sits on the open oven door, the STOVE MIGHT TIP OVER!!.

And such people project their fears and anxieties onto the rest of us. It is not being careless or unthinking, but elitism that leads to such projection.

I pity such people, and work diligently to make sure that such fearful fools are never in control of my life.

It is funny how she conflates her ignorance with a legal issue. I don’t have any of that training, but I could buy a gun and use it. Of course, I grew up in a country where I was allowed to play with toy guns, and I play with paintball guns and airsoft guns, and I was in the boy scouts so I shot a rifle in my day.

If I actually bought a gun, I’d go to a range, take a class, and practice, because I would want to make sure I could hit something if I had to. Not because the government required me to.
