NRA (National Rifle Association) Fallacy
Whenever there is a mass shooting, the NRA claims the problem is not enough guns. They assert, even the mentally ill should have guns. Even children should have them. Even the drunks. Even felons. This is nonsense. Why?

- There have been hundreds of mass shootings, yet no armed citizen has yet stopped or even impeded one. There plenty of guns, enough for one for every man, women and child in the USA.
- Every country on earth with less gun violence than the USA has laws much more restrictive on guns than the USA.
- Guns that can shoot rounds in rapid succession have no legitimate civilian use. They are for mass killing in war.
- Guns are an offensive rather than a defensive weapon. The odds favour the offence. The element of planning and surprise favours the offence.
