Boy do I get sick of that one -- guns are only for killing people. That's not actually true, but let's say it was. I'm sure even they could name people who need to be killed, some of them in the nick of time. Bin Laden. Hitler. Taliban insurgents. Timothy McVeigh. Holmes. In the same breath they say we have police to protect us (we don't) but hiding in that statement is a tacit admission that the gun, used by the cop to impose his ultimate will, is good and necessary. So it's the citizen with the gun that bothers them. Usually at this point I say they're welcome to their opinion, and they can stand behind me when the SHTF.
