The liberals are very serious about guns. We must get rid of them because, the argument goes, guns kill people. It would be much more accurate to say, “Guns don’t kill people, Negroes do.” But if we started saying things like that, we might be admitting that evil rests in the bosoms of men and women and not in inanimate objects.

The definitive statement about gun control comes from Jack Schaefer’s Shane:

“Listen, Bob. A gun is just a tool. No better and no worse than any other tool, a shovel – or an axe or a saddle or a stove or anything. Think of it always that way. A gun is as good – and as bad – as the man who carries it. Remember that.”
