It sounds like a gun-lover's crime-free dream world: an army of professional and well-trained armed men and women with extensive knowledge of firearms and firearm safety. Everybody has a gun. This will keep the crazy murders at bay!
Then on a military base in Iraq, a soldier shot and killed five other soldiers. If an army with guns can't prevent a crazy killer, what chance do the rest of us have? This, my gun-loving friends, illustrates the basic position of my gun-hating friends: guns don't keep you safe. An unarmed world is safer than an armed world.
