How can someone claim to be "pro life" when they are pro gun?


Robert E Wilson said...

Easy. There's an estimated 2.5 million people in the U.S. per year who's life was saved because they owned a gun.

You might be one Erik and not even know it. Ever consider that thieves haven't broken into your home because they don't know whether or not there's a gun in your house?

Any how many MORE are killed?

Erik said...

You re not pro life you are pro birth. You don't care about anyone after.

Robert E Wilson said...

Actually Erik, I'm pro-abortion and I've said this before. Apparently you have forgotten that. Yes, it's possible to be a pro-abortion, anti-death penalty conservative because I am one.

Anyways, according to stats I found (United States — Gun Facts, Figures and the Law), there were 32,163 gun-related deaths in the U.S. in 2011.

I want too clarify my earlier assertion of the estimated 2.5 million lives saved per year. That number is the number of incidents where an individual used a gun for self-protection. All 2.5 million incidences may not have resulted in the death of the would-be gun user. That number is estimated to be 400,000.

To answer your question, it is not MORE, it is in fact less.

400,000 > 32,163 (If I remember my second-grade math correctly)

Even if the numbers were reversed, my opinion wouldn't change. The RIGHT to be able to defend oneself against enemies, both foreign and domestic is a key factor in what makes Americans free. No government should EVER have the ability to take that RIGHT away.
