Guns Save Lives

I'm continually amazed that John Stossel is still on ABC's 20/20 even though he regularly promotes gun ownership and conceal carry. His latest piece on Real Clear Politics (via Instapundit) is a prime example of the argument against Gun Free zones and gun control laws in general, he summerizes

    "If someone gets into your house, which would you rather have, a handgun or a telephone? You can call the police if you want, and they'll get there, and they'll take a picture of your dead body. But they can't get there in time to save your life. The first line of defense is you."

Sadly, I think too many people are too willing to give up responsibility for their own well being, I suppose its easier to let the .gov take care of you than face the chore of doing it yourself.
