Christmas and guns have more in common than you might realize. No one ever denies that Christmas is a time when diets are lost, and pounds are gained. It's a simple thing: More candy, and sweets and food are placed on the table at during the holiday season than what we usually are accorded.
Having so much food before us, we just eat more. That's simple enough and obvious to see. Shall we say, then, the proliferation of goodies leads our increasing in weight?
I think you can see where I'm driving. As it is with the holiday season, so it is with guns. The abundance of guns leads to their being used more often than if so many people didn't have them. Flood your nation with guns, and you will have more murders.
