People look for oncoming vehicles before crossing the street. People who take medication count the number of pills they take. When people who are driving come to a red light, they stop. Itís all because they want to reduce risk and avoid unnecessary danger. People do it all the time during a normal day. Those who donít do it become victims of evolution.
Yet gun advocates insist that people do NOT try to try to reduce risk and avoid unnecessary danger. They make this argument in the hopes of justifying their position on guns. However, any conclusion based on a false premise is weak.
Gun advocates may continue to insist that people do not try to reduce risk and avoid unnecessary danger. That would only show how weak their argument is.
