There are some arguments that are beyond ridiculous. We’ve all heard them, of course. When it comes to guns, one of the most absurd is that if we ban guns, violent crime will more or less disappear. After all, that’s never happened anywhere on the planet and we’re typically more violent as a nation than most other countries, but sure. That’s going to happen.
However, many on the anti-gun side truly believe that. The smarter ones, even if they believe it, recognize it’s a bad argument to make because there’s so little evidence for it.
Yet their side isn’t immune to it. Our side makes some arguments that make anti-gunners completely roll their eyes and dismiss anything else you might have to say.
