Criminals prefer unarmed victims. So common sense tells us that the gun control lobby should be full of criminals.
The gun control lobby's motto has always been "The ends justify the means." For example, the Million Mom March tricked San Francisco General Hospital into
illegally providing the MMM with free office space. That attitude carries over into everything that gun control lobbyists do. More gun deaths means more support for gun control. So nobody should be surprised that gun control lobbyists shoot people. However, I was surprised that they had the foresight to teach children that "The only purpose of guns is to kill people" and then buy guns for those same children.
If you were as much of a jerk as the following examples then you would support gun control too. You can certainly understand why jerks like this are afraid of getting shot.
One way to prevent gun deaths is to use explosives to destroy all the guns and kill all the people.
