Truth is never convenient

“Gun Laws Don’t Work”

November 6th, 2017

Gun laws don’t work because criminals ignore them.

Rape laws don’t work because rapists ignore them.

Murder laws don’t work because murderers ignore them.

Anti-fraud laws don’t work because con men ignore them.

Speed limits don’t work because speeders ignore them.

Laws protecting private property from theft don’t work because criminals ignore them.

The concept of law is meaningless.

Good people don’t need laws, and bad people ignore them.

Therefore, all laws should be abolished.
