Jesus. Well-researched, that's for sure. Pretty clever work, actually.

Those who crave gun control are in denial.  They blindly believe that the problem of violence resides in society at large or in an inanimate object.  On one hand, they believe that people are all good, and that in the presence of guns, a good person will be magically transformed into a murdering maniac.  Yet in a curious schizophrenic split of the mind, they also believe that people are bad, that they are incompetent to handle a tool with fewer operating mechanisms than a car, which kills about 15 times as many children a year in accidents. They believe that people are not to be trusted with guns.

      Fracturing their minds into thirds, they also believe that the government, which is made up of the very same people, somehow can be trusted; that somehow  private citizens, who are incompetent and untrustworthy, magically transforms when they join the government, military, or police department.

I eventually figured out that the gunhaters were indeed using contradictory arguments to try and prove their point.  All they do is confuse their audience, which to them is just about the same thing.
