Why Owning A Gun Is A Completely Rational Insurance Policy Against Danger

The social and economic uncertainty surrounding the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic has Americans understandably concerned about their personal safety. In March 2020, the FBI reported the highest monthly number of firearms background checks ever recorded: 3,740,688. Compared to March of the previous year, Americans bought 1.1 million more guns in a single month.

I tell my liberal friends that have a firearm in the house is like a  seatbelt.

You hope you will never need it, and you probably won't ever need it. 

(This is the standard liberal argument, to quote some statistics about how

ever 'use' their seatbelt. )

 

But when  you do need it, you really need it.

However, I am against making firearms ownership compulsory.

 

Just  the opposite, in fact: non-gun owners should be encouraged to

signal their virtue by posting a prominent sign on their homes:

THIS IS A GUN-FREE ZONE!

 

 

 


You can get a lot further in life with a kind word and a gun, than with a kind word alone.

     And as an added incentive to virtue, they should leave their credit card on the table, with it's pin written down.
