    Why do those who favor gun control feel compelled to lie about everything they post on the subject?

    After all, the research is out there for anyone who is willing to look that shows their unwillingness to accept the truth.

    I realize this is a rhetorical question, but it is so true. I think the answer is evident in thier mentality in the first place... Understand, you are dealing first and foremost with individuals who are scared and think that everyone else should be scared as well. Instead of educating themselves, they feel we should all hold hands and cry out for the meanies to leave us alone. The fine line between pacifism and cowardice cannot be measured until it isn't your life on the line, but rather, a defenseless loved one, or even a random stranger who cannot defend themselves. Well I, for one, will not hesitate to draw my .45 and dispense with the pleasantries if God puts me in a guardian's position. I value peace, but these jokers are just hiding behind PC rhetoric and idealistic B.S.

    I wrote a hub recently on Gun Control and covered two major facts that gun control advocates refuse to state or acknowledge..
    1) 95% of all gun crimes are committed by guns that are illegally possessed.
    2) About half of the gun related deaths are suicides and those deaths would have occurred because the person committing suicide would find another method or weapon.

    Because when the facts don't support your views you have to change them.  It's not so much lying as simply changing the definitions of words.  Example;  land of the free used to mean Americans were free to live, work and make your own fortune.  Now it means you can live for free without working off someone else's fortunes.
