Leap of Logic?

From the Washington Post; unfortunately I can’t recall which day:

The problem with giving a gun to Dick A. Heller, the security officer  
who is a plaintiff in District of Columbia v. Heller, is that the  
court would also be giving a gun to thousands of violent criminals in  
the District, which already has a murder rate among the highest in the  
country -- because there are just too many guns. 

MARK CONTE 
Mary Esther, Fla.

Read this carefully.  Washington DC has a murder rate among the highest in the country – because there are just too many guns.

1.  DC bans handguns.  Therefore, zero is too many.

2.  You don’t give guns.  You sell guns to individuals who choose to purchase them, and who choose to subject themselves to background checks to exercise their second amendment right.

3.  Those who sell guns to “violent criminals” are flaunting laws already – what’s one more?  (And, oh, by the way – this happens inside the District.)

Gotta love logic.
